JEFF SEFFINGA


Cinquains

A cinquain is a short, five lined verse that follows a specific pattern in its line length.
The first line consists of two syllables, the second of four, the third of six, the fourth of
eight and the fifth or last of two syllables again.

Here are two:

Summer –
the morning sun
dispels traces of mist,
evaporates dew from the grass,
and laughs.

two lips
touch a forehead
a finger strokes a cheek
the caresses of a lover
bring joy
