A dose of fetish. Good friends. An incomparable muse.
Welcome to the Saturday Mix, 10 February 2018!
This week I have reached into my mystery bag and pulled out a Cinquain. It’s my husband’s birthday in two days, so your challenge today, is to write a Cinquain poem with the theme of “Birthday”.
You may be thinking to yourself, What on earth is a Cinquain?
Luckily, Forward Poetry has an explanation…
What is the structure of a Cinquain?
A cinquain consists of 5 unrhymed lines.
Each line has a set number of syllables and words. See below:
Line 1 – one word, 2 syllables (noun)
Line 2 – two words, 4 syllables (adjectives)
Line 3 – three words, 6 syllables (verbs ending in -ing)
Line 4 – four words, 8 syllables (express feeling or describe noun)
Line 5 – one word, 2 syllables (synonym for noun in line 1)
An example of a Cinquain Poem (by me!)
