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.
Manifest, Express, Materialise
Pure Thought, Energy, Desire

not bad....not bad at all........but I love the porky piccy above....lol
LOL not good not good at all But I also loved the piggy bank cartoon too LOL.
Well done Milli. I found this a little harder to do than I thought
Aw thanks Sharon so much.
Yes Rita it requires some deep thoughts unless you wish to make a very light Cinquain.
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)ManifestationEndless powerFormulae for AttractionPure Thought, Energy, DesireMilli09I 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...
Poor piggy, but probably the most sensible thing at the moment.
Loved the cartoon.I am not qualified to say much more than.. it was a challenge and I think you met it.No rules , but the guide lines.Keep going.. http://trayne.multiply.com/journal/item/290/Poetry_Posse_Week_24
You have my vote here.I think maybe you can write my posts from now on. You have such a great formulae. i am impressed with the man from Perth.
yo mills.....manifestation of what?....grins.....i like it...............lots......
LOL Good one Mannu....
love it....and the picture is awesome funnyxx
I am glad you found the irony..thanks jools
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.
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!!!
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.
May I respectfully suggestMilli6 -- Where 6 should be uppercase which mathematically equates to one million.You do us a POWER of good. lol
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!
i thought the first one was powerful... this one though is soulful!... you are great at this milli!!!
Aww thanks sweetheart.
LOL at the cartoon... and yes, cartoon does imply karma.. Theres Karma to a Bank too :P
I think the first one is already great. The revision is even better. ^&^I am learning more about Aussies. Thanks to you and Pete. Ha!
We're a weird mob, I tell ya.....lmao...We always find something to laugh at........yes, even us Kiwi's too.....lol
That's why I love you guys. Kiwi's are those who live in New Zealand, right? Am confused.
cartoon is great.. I liked the verse too.
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.
Very clever Milli, I love it!Mia the kiwi lol
Oh Mia now Deity will be very confused if she hears your Kiwi Accent LOL. Thanks so much for stopping by.
yup....but when I came to Ozzie, I left the lights on...so any Ozzies escaping the Kiwi exodus could see where they were going....lmao....
LOL and now they all go home again?
nope...we own this country now.....Yours is across the ditch.....Lmao.....
now i totally understand. i thought i got lost on the mapquest again. ha ha.
ha ha ha ha ...we have a friendly rivallry, with life, sport and everything.Its all good fun.....
