Day six of napowrimo… Every day they give a prompt. I thought todays was interesting so I’m going to give it a go.
It’s a style of poetry call a cinquain. A five stanza poem that goes like this:
first line… 2 syllable, second line, 4 syllables, third line, 6, 4th line, 8… last line 2. It’s a syllable thing and I’m clear that it’s not nearly as simple at it seems. And, I’m likely to write more than one.
you sit lonely
I feel myself reach out
Quiet hearts meet like this often
rippled waves of warm breath
hungry to breeze away lonely
next to you now
Silent to each other
inhale the breath and depth of you
