Cinquains :)

Cinquains :)

A Poem by Luna Evangeline


Dazzling display

Glowing, ascending, hypnotizing

Vibrant as the sun





Spirit astray

Sighing, mourning, lingering

Elusive as a forgotten memory





Sweltering oasis

Baking, relaxing, tanning

Slow as molasses





Green, silken

Dipping, diving, dancing

Drifts like a lonesome cloud

I love to write poetry, but admittedly I am always a student and forever will be of its immeasurable possibilities and myriad forms. Cinquains, then would make sense as short pieces written in 5 lines, whether it be your design or that of a seasoned master both bring me joy. Your fine descriptions built upon metaphorical comparison and states of being are marvelous, as they are, just the same.

These really are finely created quintains. You've shown your readers a chain of shimmering lights. I'm full of admiration. The last one's memorable!

I didn't even know what a cinquain was until now, so thanks for teaching me something new. Reading them was like slowly walking through a gallery and viewing the many paintings or photographs, especially the last one, which captured the motion of a feather in an interesting standstill. Nice work : )
