The didactic cinquain poem works like this:
First Line: Title
Second Line: Two words that describe the title
Third Line: Three words that give more information on the subject
Fourth Line: Four words that describe feelings related to the subject
Fifth Line: Single word that is a synonym for the title.
The example that I found that best helped me see how this works is:
Swaying, Swinging, Sighing
Memories of the Summer
Simple but effective. I can picture it perfectly in my mind.
So, to relate this to a topic I love to write about, I happened upon a new piece of artwork on the Fans of David site from my favorite graphic artist in the land of The Archuleta, Juan Morales. (Go here for Juan's blog.) The minute I laid my eyes on this new piece, I knew that I had to write about it. Thanks Juan for always inspiring me to dig deep into my mind and soul for just the right words.
First, here is the artwork entitled, Lightburst.
Now, here is my interpretation of this work.
Brilliant, Fiery, Unexpected
Expression of Spiritual Enlightenment
