Alphabe-Thursday: The Letter Q

Jenny Matlock

Q is for Quest

Quibble if you must..
I have no Quarrel with you!
My Quandary is thus:

Remain rooted in an emotional Quagmire
of Quirky memories

(where like the Quail,
 Quarry to what pain's Quiver holds)

or

With Quill in hand,
begin a Quiet Quest
towards healing.

Maybe it's Quixotic to think
I shall be able to make this Quantum leap.

The first choice leaves me Queasy,
the second Quells my Qualm.

You again did a very good job especially with the letter Q which I found very difficult. Great job as usual.
