POEM: genuine article

April 30, 2013

And….the cinquain! Phew! That’s a fair amount of (structured) poems for one night. I’m going to sleep people.

For those who don’t know, a cinquain is a poem that is 5 lines long. The grade-school version goes: first line is a noun, second: two adjectives, third: verbs aka ing words, the fourth: a phrase, and the last one is another noun to describe the subject.

But the version I choose follows the format: first line: 2 syllables, second: 4, third: 6, forth: 8 and the final one 2 syllables.

This cinquain is inspired by a blogger who I follow, Yi-Ching Lin. Her posts are pretty dope, you should check her out actually. The photo is called “counter“. Here’s the cinquain to accompany the photo. Enjoy!
