Poem Posse ~ Write a Cinquain.

Write a Cinquain.

A cinquain is poetry with five lines.

Line 1 has one word (the title).

Line 2 has two words that describe the title.

Line 3 has three words that tell the action.

Line 4 has four words that express the feeling, 

Line 5 has one word which recalls the title in some way.

 

 

Manifestation

**************

Unlimited potential

 

Manifest, Express, Materialise

 

Pure Thought, Energy, Desire

 

Karma

****************

Milli 09

  4. Yes Rita it requires some deep thoughts unless you wish to make a very light Cinquain.

  5. Very intriguing... I suspect that you need a way to make “Unlimited potential” less polysyllabic — it sounds like too many words, more words than are actually there.

    While we’re achieving the impossible, there’s stretching the “of” within “law of attraction” to make it sound like more syllables... hmmm... let’s have a go (this will probably not work well, but nothing ventured, nothing gained)Manifestation
    Endless power
    Formulae for Attraction
    Pure Thought, Energy, Desire
    Milli09I ran Milli into 09 to make it sort-of say “million” & be one word. “Endless power” lacks a bit of punch, but makes Line 2 more clearly two words.

    Formulae? Well, it’s a marginal tongue-twister but a synonym for laws (in this sense) & a plural. It also allows the “for” to flow better, standing in as a more distinct word than “of.”

    A challenge...

  6. Poor piggy, but probably the most sensible thing at the moment.

  12. As odd as this may sound, I see a connection of the cinquain and the cartoon.

    No matter how powerful, how strong, how rich we may be, if we don't watch our nickles and dimes, everything is lost.

    As to the cartoon alone, it is silly funny. Grinning.

  13. Very powerful lesson here especially when linked with the picture, which by the way is so cut and funny! Good thinking, I really like it! Thank you, Millie for your visit!!!

  14. Took me a while to see the paradox between the piggy cartoon and your entry. I just got from work. Students made me dumb and numb. LOL.

    Anyway, I think you delivered a rather more revitalizing approach to life through your cinquain. Should be upon everyone's spirits these days.

    Thanks for the kind comment. You really know how to boost me ego. LOL.

  15. May I respectfully suggest
    Milli6 -- Where 6 should be uppercase which mathematically equates to one million.

    You do us a POWER of good. lol

  16. I have changed my original effort for two reasons it was not actually correct when I read the reference for a true Cinquain. I have never written one of these before. The other reason was that I used a paradox approach which was not easily recognised by many. However I am pleased to have the input here from all my friends as it keeps me on my toes for a new learning curve. We Aussies are Characters you know and can never really keep a straight face at times. LOL Thanks all!

  22. cartoon is great.. I liked the verse too.

  23. Yes Deity Aussies are Australians and Kiwi's are New Zealanders. But New Zealander's can live in Aus too and Aussies can live in New Zealand. We have a slight difference in our English pronunciation. If you get to hear us speaking you will pick the difference. Like Mr Pete Says, Here We all usually maintain a healthy slice of humour.
