April - Poetry Month - Day Three - Cinquain


       Happy Poetry Month, where poems parade in the streets, run like rivers within our veins or settle in our hearts every.single,time. 
       I am planning to use this older book pictured left that follows the alphabet with one kind of prompt each day. I used this book on occasion in the classroom years ago, but never worked through it day by day, with deliberation! Here goes!

Today I wrote thanks to Laura Purdie-Salas' challenge HERE. Must choose one of the topics & use the words she posts. It isn't an easy task, but fun finally to create something that made sense. 

       Today, for your information: 
The Rules of a Cinquain

These are the rules: Cinquains are five lines long. They have 2 syllables in the first line, 4 in the second, 6 in the third, 8 in the fourth line, and just 2 in the last line. Cinquains do not need to rhyme, but you can include rhymes if you want to.

    1. Thank you! So far they are also fun to write!

  2. I love your NPM project, Linda! Have fun dancing through the alphabet! It's so nice to read something written from an opposing viewpoint to mine, too! I love "firm heart control."

    1. Thanks, Laura, this is fun, & not easy, to do. I love looking at yours & mine together, too!


Thanks for visiting!
