My 1st dribble
It is so much fun to count each letter! 😉 (Though the stress makes my armpits get wetter...
who'd have known the dribble's a sweater?)
The dribble is a brief poem consisting of exactly 100 letters (not 100 characters—spaces and punctuation are not counted).
The name of the dribble is derived from the micro-fiction form known as the drabble, a story consisting of exactly 100 words. [READ MORE]

I love the mathematicians here … you amaze me!💖
That’s funny 😀
My Dad was an actual mathematician (Ph.D. in math)… I’m just a guy who likes to play with words – no mathematicians here – just us badgers!
Well that explains it.. the dna is close to home!. a dribbling badger is what we get.. xo 💖
I’m a little confused. The dribble is supposed to have 100 letters but I counted and only got 70 letters? I love the clever rhyme!!
I just doublechecked, and it’s 100 letters (I think you miscounted, Muri):
You might be sweating, David, but the poem is cool.
thanks, Dolly ❤
My pleasure, David.

I like the dribble composition.👌
❤ Lokesh, thank you! ❤
Don’t you think you have a brilliant mind? Only a few bloggers are hitting a topic hard. Their words speak out.
Honestly, Lokesh, that’s incredibly kind of you, but, no, I don’t think I have a mind that’s more incredible than yours. We all have our strengths – it’s a matter of investing the time and energy to identify them ❤
But -again- thank you, Friend.
I should choose to blog about the topic that increases my productivity. So, let’s stay away from stuff.😁
Believe me, reading each kind of post makes you feel irritated. I have done a lot in the beginning.
I agree with Lokesh. I can’t see a lot of guys writing dribbles or atom poems, or hexastiches. Its really nice to see a person attempting and actually succeeding in writing such forms of poetry, which is a rare thing. So, keep it up! Awaiting more amazing works.
Wow, Quaran… seriously, thank you… but I’m just a guy with time on his hands. You could write 7 badger poems if you wanted to, I promise! Or 7 atoms… or whatever… it just takes the time to sift through dictionaries and thesauruses to find words that fit the message and the form.
Haha you got me!Even I keep a thesaurus near me for finding words that rhyme, but I mostly write only short poems with short stanzas. Perhaps if you saw a few of them, you’d get me 😂
❤ thanks, May! ❤
