Our task was to write a "cinquain." What the heck is that? I am not really a poem person. Most of my poetry favorites are actually lines from songs. Apparently a cinquain is a poem with five lines, along the likes of a "haiku." It was first created by a woman named Adelaide Crapsey. The basis for this one was:
One word noun
two adjectives that describe the word
three action words
a four word phrase that express a feeling or make a statement
one word synonym or adjective that describes the first word.
With that as a guide, here is my cinquain:
moving, healing, exciting
makes my heart sing
and the pictures that go along with it are here:
|Sir Paul McCartney|
|Eddie Van Halen|
|Kool and the Gang|
These are some pictures that I have taken at concerts over the past couple of years.
Well, that's my attempt at a cinquain. I think I may be trying that again.
What about you? Ever written a cinquain? I'd love to read it.
