Love Cinquain Collection

  Now that we have moved into the “month of love,” I thought I’d dig back through my cinquain archives and take a look at some of the love cinquains I’ve written in the past.

Okay! We’re finishing up the first full month of 2021 on a great note: with coffee and cinquain. What better combination is there? (Well …. maybe coffee and chocolate … but we’ll do that again later.) Ooopsie! Don’t want to spill Or waste a single drop Of this delicious coffee in My cup.

Three-Day Coffee Cinquain Challenge — Day 2

I admit that for this Day 2 cinquain I did not use the actual word coffee. But I stand by the poem as indicative of the allure and satisfaction that only coffee can bring. 🙂 Ready. How much longer? Your fragrance titillates. We’re trembling in our saucers now. Hurry!

Rain hangingContinue reading “Rain Poems”

Written in response to a couple friends of mine who have said for almost a year that they’ve thought about trying to write cinquain, but they won’t even make a start. They find it fascinating, but seem to be afraid of it. They have this false idea that because they need to count syllables, theyContinue reading “Cinquain: Just Do It”
