Cinquain Poetry

Lost All (a Cinquain)

Lost all

in a crap game.

Never was good at gambling.

Think I'll just sit on the sidelines

and watch.

I Wait (a Cinquain)

My love,

for you I yearn.

Hear me calling you home

back to my arms where you belong.

I wait.

Prevail,

my fragile dream;

Riding on the feathers

of tomorrow's hope-borne wing tips...

I fly!

Protect

the innocents.

Mama guards nest fiercely

against all circling predators.

Beware!

Folder: 
Scribbles on Life

Got sick

felt a tickle

which grew to a trickle...

blossomed into full-blown flu.

Ah-choo!

Of time... (a Cinquain)

Of time...

every moment

leaves its footnote traces

in the pages of our life span;

Memoirs.

Faded (a cinquain)

Folder: 
Love's Sorrow

Tears dwell

in yesterday's

tattered pockets of jeans;

once acid washed blue, now simply...

faded.

Mirrors - A Cinquain

Poetry

Mirrors

False reflections

And perceptions of self

Refractions alluding to ruse

Deceit

Ever so small

Swimming in languid grace

Amidst beautiful lotus

Blissful
