DAY5  OF NaPoWrim0  Is  a cinquain is a poem that employs stanzas with five lines.

Well here we go three little  cinquain they are not too happy but we cannot be be upbeat all the time can we?





lozenge shaped

white and round

they lift me up






drooping low

muscles aching pain

all over me so






sinking falling

dragging me down

loosing my senses crawling

evil, cruel depression.

    I like the abstract simplicity of these Willow – you’ve got a kind of unraveling thing going on in the rhythm which works with the subject matter. Yes, I do like.

      Thanks Holly, I do love to try new things and I can’t resist a challenge! I really appreciate what you have said because I am such a fan of your work and if don’t always praise it , it is because I don’t want you to think “OMG it’s that weirdo again” 😉 seriously though I did like these and I tried to keep them simple and in rhythm and to the point.

    definitely to the point, Sweet Willow, ..describing so well the downward spiralling hold depression has on us… At one time I was held totally in it’s thrall, and the ‘dark cloud’ as I name it sometimes returns without warning, ’tis a difficult emotion to explain but you have managed it… … warm hugs to you my friend. xPenx
