Brewing Storm Cinquain


fly through dark skies
waves unfurl – ashore wind
gusts softly ripple verdant fields

Pat R

This 2nd poem is based on the ‘words’ style: 1-2-3-4-1 pattern of words where the first is a noun, the second two adjectives describing the noun, three and four description, emotion, and the last word a synonym for the first word.


quick, bright

ominous electric energy

scary scorching fiery white


Pat R
