Each month we are trying to do some interactive posts that will get you writing. I know this is nanowrimo, but we still think it’s fun to interact.
We’ve picked a short poetry form that many of you might know: the Cinquain. I know there are a few different forms of these, but I wanted to keep it simple. I don’t think a fun writing exercise should be frustrating in any way. Let’s see the best Cinquain you can come up with. Winner will be published on Every Day Poems with a bio.
I’ve picked, what I feel is the simplest way of writing a Cinquain. It is the Holidays after all, and we don’t want to spend a week trying to write a complicated poetry form (in the future, perhaps). For now write your Cinquain IN THE COMMENTS like this:
Line 1: A noun
Line 2: Two adjectives
Line 3: Three -ing words
Line 4: A phrase of four words
Line 5: Synonym for the noun in the first line
waiting, strumming, wanting,
to go home to
Write as many as you want:
