Sometimes It is enough To take up brush and pen And lay down shapes and colors soft — Soul art.
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. I will have to write some new ones this year, of course, but I enjoy reading those from past yearsContinue reading “Love Cinquain Collection”
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.
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!
I decided it’s time I wrote about coffee again, and I like to challenge myself to write about a common topic in an uncommon way. So I’ve decided to close out January with a 3-day challenge to myself to write a brand new coffee cinquain for the last 3 days of the month. And ifContinue reading “Three-Day Coffee Cinquain Challenge — Day 1”
Birthdays: Mine’s coming up. But I’m not getting old. Just like good wine, I’m at my best When aged.

May Day Is almost here. A day to bring good cheer. Let’s dance around the Maypole and Be glad! We need Some happy days To sing and laugh and dance. So let’s get festive as we greet May Day! ~~~ ~
The truth of Jesus Christ’s complete redemption can be told in any form. In this post I’ve set God’s truth into Cinquain — one of my favorite poetic forms. Virus: To lots of folks It is a scary word. But there’s a name that can kill it: Jesus! Disease By any name. Must bow toContinue reading “There Is A Cure”
It’s been raining here for two whole days, so I thought it was only fitting that I write about rain. Since I’m in a poetic mood, I decided I’d give myself a little workout and do one haiku, one cinquain, and one simple iambic pentameter verse about that subject. HAIKU Everything is gray. 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”
I wrote this piece for my poetry site, but decided I’d share it here as well. Portals Wait before me. I stand before closed doors But do not let that hinder me: “Open!” Behold, The doors obeyed. And now I stand in awe. I see what possibilities Await. So now I must decide: Will IContinue reading “Stepping Through The Door — Cinquain”
I’m tired Of summer heat. I say this ev’ry year: Fall is the only perfect time Of year. Autumn Is close now. I hear the crickets sing. And leaves are falling one by one. Can’t wait. Seasons Come and go. And I appreciate All of them, but none so much as Autumn. Thanks so muchContinue reading “Three Autumn Cinquain: I’m So Ready”
I haven’t written any cinquain in several months. That’s not like me at all, so I decided I’d remedy that situation today and write two. Faulty Garden Zenias I planted some, And nice green stems came up. But months have passed and still no blooms. What’s wrong??? Closing In On Christmas August HasContinue reading “Two Cinquain Just For Fun”
