I heard about this poetry form, Cinquain, during one of my visits to http://purplesplatitudes.wordpress.com. If you get the chance, stop by Michael’s blog. His writing is wonderful and he ventures into different poetry forms and emotions. I know you won’t be disappointed!
I would definitely call these “rough drafts” and more practicing is in the future, but I hope you enjoy…♥
When they were Young
barefoot on cool
grass, swinging in summer
breeze, smiles bigger than Texas state
ears with shaky
echoes of pain flow in and out
comfort food, oh,
something creamy sounds good
gooey, sinfully delicious

These are all good, Lauren. 🙂 You write about three very different things, changing the mood each time, but then linking them all together with the thread of “life” in all of it’s innocence, big defining moments, and those tiny pleasures that make all the difference. Great job! Love and hugs, my friend. xoxo
Thanks so much, Angela, and I just love your reply about “linking them all together with the thread of life in all of it’s innocence, big defining moments, and those tiny pleasures that make all the difference.” Such a beautiful way of describing them…thank you! I always appreciate your wonderful feedback as I wish my brain was linked to yours for writing! 🙂 Lots of love and hugs to you, too! xoxo
beautiful as always lauren 🙂
Thanks so much, Kruti! I hope all is well with you! xx
Very good! I liked that last one especially. Sinful 😉
Thanks, Joe, and chocolate had to fit in somehow! 🙂 You should try these since you like haiku!
Its brilliant! Oh how i missed being here and reading your clever words!
Thanks, Chatty, although “brilliant” is a bit high for my words….:) But your lovely comment is greatly appreciated, as well as, your visit!
I love the playfulness of the words.
Yes, I enjoyed it, Lauren! 🙂 xx
Thanks so much, Marina! This form was fun to work with and I’d like to try more new forms this year. There’s nothing like stepping out of the box! 🙂 Hope you are well! xx
these are hardly rough drafts, and if they are … I better start working on mine! These are wonderful AS IS Lauren, although I really don’t get the whole chocolate thingy 🙂 j/k You should play with an oddquain now, or combine the two , maybe alternating them in different stanzas in the same poem or something. You can do it! Oh, and thanks for such undeserved referral to my blog.
Haha, Michael! Thanks for the praise and I hope by now you understand chocolate! 🙂 Oddquain? Okay, I’ll look it up and give it a go, too! I appreciate the encouragement and I wasn’t going to do this post without giving you a “shout out!” I’ve always loved your writing!
cinquain is even, 2 4 6 8 2, oddquain is odd syllable counts per line, 1 3 5 7 1. I’ll be watching …. see my examples or find others online. Happy writing and sunshine.
Okay, well that makes sense and duh! 🙂 You can watch, but don’t hold your breath. 🙂 I’ll check out your examples, too! Thanks again!
Three different themes – but all about life. Lovely 🙂
Thanks so much, Eric! 🙂
I bet you know which one I could most relate to! And just in time for Easter.
Of course I do, Binky! And I hope you get a lot for Easter, too! 🙂
I hope you get your fill, too, Lauren.
Should I stand for your ovation and watch you take a bow for writing some great pieces?
Oh my gosh, Kim, you are too kind and I don’t think that is necessary, but thank you, my friend! 🙂
I love these Lauren! It’s good trying out new forms. Ive tried a few cinquains with a slightly different form to them; it seems there are quite a few different syllable counts. I can soon become confused and enjoy going back to being free!
Thanks, Chris! There are several variations and I just found out there are oddquains, too! Yes, confusion is very easily attained! ♥ xo
Ah, whatever the form, you have captured life in all its innocence, complication and survival through simply having faith. That is so often what you offer through your beautiful writing, Lauren! XO ♥
What a beautiful thing to “say” Diane! Thank you so much, my friend! Those are encouraging words to keep me writing. 🙂 ♥
I like, Iove reading your work! Wonder if I should give it a try! God Bless
Aww…thanks, PJ, and yes, you should try! I found out the “rules” from Michael’s blog, but you can also Google them…or I can send you a link, if you’d like…God Bless you, too!
You welcome, I still need to learn haiku, please send link! God Bless
Okay, do you want me to email it?
Okay, will do! 🙂
Easter is a promise of joy and renewal
May this one before us
Marks a new beginning
Of happiness, love and prosperity.
Wishing you a Happy Easter!
With love Maxima
