Q is a Quirky Letter #AtoZChallenge

Writing about Q is making me queasy
I must say that letter is not very easy,
Time is limited, I need something quick
I must find something before I get sick,

I need a quantity of quiet time
So that I can create some quality rhyme,
Quirky and queer is my writing mind
Sometimes my muse is not very kind,

My muse thinks that she’s a queen
When I ask for help, she’s not very keen,
She does stupid quizzes while I’m writing this verse
The questions are ridiculous, the answers are worse,

Why can’t she quit that and help me instead?
She quivers and shrugs and shakes her head,
I’m on my own for better or worse
Struggling to write my Letter Q verse!

Q is a fun letter. I like the words quack, quill, quiet, quiver, quality, and of course I like being a Queen of my own life if you’ve ever seen my Facebook posts.

  1. I always look forward to what A to Zers will do with Q. It's a tricky one but you've made it so much fun. Loved your poem.

    1. Thanks, Tulika. I had some fun in my frustration! Haha!

  2. Hahaha! You did good with your Q verse, Cathy! :D
    My favorite Q words... I don't really know. But I'm always amused to see people trip on quiet and quite. Quack has got a nice sound to it.
    Happy AtoZing!

    1. Thanks, Chicky. It was a hard one so I decided to have some fun with it. Yes, people mess up quiet and quite with typos a lot, don't they?

  3. Awesome verses for Q Cat. Q is a difficult letter but you aced it.

  4. Thanks, Suzy. I took the fun approach and decided to be silly. You know me!

  5. That was fun! ☺ Your Facebook 'queen' posts are always inspiring and self-affirming. Two of my favourite 'Q' words are 'quest' and 'question'.

    1. Thanks, Debbie. I enjoy writing silly rhyme. Thanks for always commenting and being supportive. I will be over to visit your S post very soon. Just doing the church bulletin first as I have to do that each week.

  6. Hey you wrote quite an entertaining post for Q. It's indeed a tough letter, along with the likes of X and Z. I like the word quicksilver a lot.
