My Poetic Sin

It is my sin:
To take the easy way.
No rhyming and no meter strong.

But still
I plead my case.
It gives me more than joy.
It disciplines my use of words:
Aids skill.

So now,
My guilt assuaged,
I’m free to give myself
To writing even more cinquain.


I discovered recently that I have written so much cinquain over the past two years that I have enough to do a book of nothing but original cinquain.
So, I just might.



Hey, don't you dare go away without leaving me a note!
