Two Cinquains Before I Away – Won’t You Send Me More?
exponentially it expands
feeling tight, it contracts
soft wings flapping
dervish ecstasy of flight
I am off soon on a summer migratory path, winging my way to Thailand (a path I’ve flown before) and to Laos (a new tangent on my route – terns have a tendency to go off their beaten paths - we love side trips you know). I have much to do before I depart on Friday and though I will no doubt swoop by other blogs just a bit (I don’t want to wear out my wings too much – that flight over the Pacific is a long one) I expect not to post for a while.
And so while I’m away, I invite you all to write your own cinquains and post them here for your amusement (and mine – of course). I will be so delighted to check in as I can in flight and read your words of charm and delight . (Oh hell…that was bad, now wasn’t it?)
