A Cinquain Poem
« on: February 08, 2006, 06:52 PM »
One of my favorite forms of poetic expression is the Cinquain. Basically it consists of:

Line 1: one word (subject or noun)
Line 2: two words (adjectives that describe line 1)
Line 3: three words (action verbs that relate to line 1)
Line 4: four words (feelings or a complete sentence, relating to line 1)
Line 5: one word (synonym of line 1 or word that sums it up)

For example:
 Â                                       goddess
 Â                                   sexy, insatiable
 Â                               flirting, smiling, posing
 Â                             exuding carnal erotic love  
 Â                                           hot
 Â                                         ':kiss'

Not difficult, but fun. How about giving it a try?

Philosophy consists very largely of one philosopher arguing that all other philosophers are jackasses. He usually proves it, and I should add that he also usually proves that he is one himself.
