I was wrong. This month’s Poetic License–a Fall-themed Cinquain–was neither simple nor easy for me.
Using two of the three methods described in my previous post, I have two poems to share:
changing, painting, cooling
Wardrobe confusion from brisk mornings and warm afternoons
That was a more traditional offering; the poem below was inspired by my daughter’s election as a representative of her class for homecoming court.
Tonight, a princess, dream fulfilled
Kind, sweet spirit, grace, her crown
Fairytale, though fleeting, real
Inner beauty, unconcealed.
I can’t wait to see how you were inspired by the theme and I sincerely HOPE the verse flowed easier for you than it did for me! Feel free to link your posts anytime; as long as you comment to let me know, I’ll receive an email that lets me know when to come knockin’ on your door.
I’m in. And I appreciate the reminders! I don’t always participate due to time or an overloaded blog calendar, but it’s nice not to have to remember to check for the linky. Thanks!
Yay for wi-fi! I got on my blog and realized that I must not know how to set the post-later thingy. I thought my poems had posted last night. But no. They’re up now. For some reason, cinquains and haiku are easy for me. (It must be that I’m a grammar geek and like articles of speech and syllables.) I don’t know if they’re any good, but they were easy to pound out. 🙂
I just realized today was PPL day, so I just whipped something up really quick…but I’m kind of happy with how they came out.
I’m starting a new poetry/photography meme myself…hope you’ll stop by to check it out.
By the way, I absolutely love your second cinquain. It’s beautiful!
I do hope you’ll post some pics of your Homecoming girl – I know you are so excited!!! What a beautiful cinquain in her honor 🙂
Oh, Robin, just got back and had time to read your poems. Lovely!
I especially love “painting” in the first one. Gorgeous. And the poem in honor of your daughter–what a gift for her!
I really had fun doing this!! Thanks so much for a few minutes of fun – now off to do chores! I’ll try to get back later to work on Friday’s 40 – latahs!
(Oh, and ADORE the one about your daughter!!)
Well, better late than never, I guess. It’s finally up. I choose your third option, since it was the easiest…
All done. Wishing we actually had a season called “autumn” here in Colorado. Evergreens just don’t want to turn pretty colors. Um…guess that’s why they’re called evergreens.
Okay, mine’s up. I enjoyed visiting everybody else’s. There are some really, really good ones out there. Way to go people. Glad you got a chance to do PPL this month.
Beautiful job as always, Robin and thanks again.
Congrats to your daughter!
Definitely wardrobe confusion this time of year.
Thanks again for making us think outside of our boxes!
We’ll late joining the party, but at least we made a showing. We had fun.
