much needed moisture
brings return of hope
wakening thirsty fields
washing away fears of a drought
over once verdant fields
bring nature’s welcome offering
Day Eight of 2016 NaPoWriMo.
Three poems on a theme, each a cinquain – the first using a word count, the second and third using a syllable count.
This is my response to Jane Dougherty’s Poetry challenge #25: Cinquain. Jane also asks that we use one of these five words: fly, lightning, verdant, unfurl and softly.
Cinquain ~ a five line poem formatted with:
~ a syllable count of 2-4-6-8-2, or
~ a word count of 1-2-3-4-1
with the second & third lines as descriptors,
the fourth line an emotion and
the fifth line a synonym or reflection of the first line
