Daily Poetry , August. Cinquain.

In July I did a Terza Rima of 31 stanzas along with Jane Dougherty and Kat Myrman. It’s the 1st August and so I thought I would try out some different types of poetry this month. I am starting with a Cinquain.

Check out what Jane and Kat are doing this month.

Kat is doing this :August Stanza a Day Challenge: A short 3,4, or 5 line poem no syllable counts of rhymes, starting with the word ‘August’ on the first day. The last word of the poem will be the first word of day two’s poem, and so on until the end of the month

Jane is doing : a chain of images each one suggested by the last word in the preceding poem. They’ll be short, a single image of just a few lines. It will be interesting to see where it ends up by the end of the month.

I shall be doing all types of poetry but each poem will start with the last word in the preceding poem.
