Word Craft Poetry – Cinquain


oh blue,

you are my fave—royal, sky, or sea I crave

with red and white it ever waves, of such colors I may rave

it seems they calm my soul to save the

true blue


This is one of the descriptions I found on the Cinquain form:

Cinquain poems are just five lines long, with only a few words on each line, making them easy to write. The first and last lines have just two syllables, while the middle lines have more, so they end up with a diamond-like shape, similar to the poetic form called the diamante.
