perfection sought
inspirational cranes
go within, find peace to bring forth

leap from each fold
hope lives in the creases
eyes closed while lost in devotion


My first attempt writing for Carpe Diem
I was forced (okay it was nicely suggested) by Jeremy to do this piece.
I am not good at following rules but I tried my best at this prompt. Be kind if I got it wrong.

The prompt… i understood it;
Write a Cinquian
what is that you ask? I know I did….here is the explanation

At its most basic level, ‘cinquain’ simply means a stanza (or poem) with five lines. However, the word also refers to either of two more specific types of five-line poems. The first type is usually centered to give it a diamond shape and has the following format:
First line: a one-word subject or title.
Second line: two adjectives which describe the subject.
Third line: three verbs relating to the subject.
Fourth line: four words forming a phrase, sentence, or set of feelings relating to the subject.
Fifth line: one word which summarizes the poem or restates the subject.

The second and more traditional type is simpler and requires only that the pattern of syllables per line in the poem is 2, 4, 6, 8, 2. (In other words, the first line has two syllables, the second has four, etc.)
