Cinquains

Filed under: Uncategorized — grumpywords @ 12:36 am

So, we started writing cinquains back in the fall for the Girls Write Now Winter Pair Reading, and had so much fun with them that we’ve continued. We have a fun twist on it, though: whatever the last line of the latest cinquain is, the next writer must use that last line as her first line. So they flow nicely when read aloud, and it’s challenging to have to write such a short, structured poem using someone else’s line. But that’s the fun of it. 

We have many cinquains at this point, so I’m going to post the first few now, and then continue adding over the next few days, so stay tuned.
