Cinquain of Cinquains – in the works

Hey all,

Just an update as I did not post a poem today. I am working on a cinquain of cinquains at the moment. By this I mean that I will be writing a rather long poem made up of cinquains as the stanzas. In each section of the poem, the number of stanzas will correspond to the number of syllables in each line of a standard cinquain poem. I think this little endeavour could be fun, and don’t want to just smash one out with little consideration. I would like to spend a good amount of time on it.

Thanks for your patience! Below is a sample of what I have written so far. This is obviously subject to change.




do we know of
the way it ended. Slow
and painful; or full of joy?

we walked
on and on and
until we saw the next
day’s light we couldn’t see even what
was close.


To be continued…
