slight veil of wispy clouds
your cheeks blushed crimson in the sun
bright in the eastern sky
wearing your silver crescent crown
and another cinquain : )
singing to his lady
of sex and immortality
Hi Kathleen. I like all three poems, especially the first one … words ‘bashful’ ‘veil’ and ‘whispy’ express the image well. Jane
Ah yes, sex and immortality always brings the ladies in. Even if you’re just kissing a frog.
Have a good weekend! Hope your weather is good enough to work outside for a while. We’re supposed to have rain all weekend. It doesn’t matter. We replaced all the windows this week and have a big cleaning job to get done anyhow.
Heading out to the garden this morning before the cold front and rain comes in – enjoying a couple of very warm days before we head back into the 50s next week. Have a load of mulch coming next week so trying to get everything cleaned up. New windows – nice -what a chore ahead of you – but soon you can sing – ‘I can see clearly now……’ : ) K
I like the parallel cinquain poems using the sun and the moon. Lovely imagery here!
Thank you so much – I am happy you liked them! K
loved the personality your first piece took
Thanks so much – K
One lyrical, one dramatic and one funny! You certainly showed us how diverse this form can be.
Thank you- I like your descriptions!- K
…really nice execution of images from your keen observation…smiles…
Thanks, Kelvin! K
lovely maiden! Beautiful
Thanks, Margaret! K
As I am writing, I can hear them singing their lovesongs! K
breezy songs weep across your cinquains! Lovely ! Deborah
Thanks, Deborah – so happy you dropped by! K
The first one was dreamy, the second almost like an ode, and the third made me smile (and a soft laugh) cute
Happy the little frog brought a smile to you, Gretchen! K
I like the cinquains very much.Each have their charm in the words you so carefully chose. I’m with Bjorn on the last one…a day maker for sure.
Thanks very much – I so appreciate your kind words! K
So many beautiful images of nature, the deep life, even in small things.
This is such a lovely thing to say – yes, even in small things – sounds like the subject for a series. : ) Thanks so much – K
your morning took my breath away
Kim – you always leave me with the nicest comments – thank you so much, can’t tell you what that means. K
There’s just a little bit of haiku peeking through in each of these delightful cinquains, Kathleen. I really enjoyed the morning and evening images – and that frog is singing a song most of us know the words to 😀
Thanks so much, Tony. I went back and read your prompt and yes, I see what you mean. This was a very challenging form for me – I think the frog song was closer to a cinquain than the others. But I am intrigued by the form and will continue to play with it. Thanks bunches! K
How sweet these are and in complement to your images.Delightful.
You are sweet to say so – thanks – K
All three are superb, with a slight sensual nod to #3.
Thanks – *smiles* K
All lovely and go together quite well to create a mood. It’s hard just stopping at one! 🙂
Thanks so much! K
I have to admit I’m a sucker for the bashful word…such a versatile adjective…and I like the peeper, too!
I know – me too – on both counts – thanks , Katy – K
The first two poems are truly stunning.
You are very kind to say so – thank you – K
Really lovely, Kathleen! Sometimes just enjoying the moments of the day brings greatest pleasure.
Yes, when we stop and give ourselves to these small moments – thats what life is about – Thanks so much for your kind words – K
“Bashful morning” – I like the idea of morning needing encouragement (just as I do to get out of bed).
So happy you liked it – K
Love bashful morning, pink sky.
Thanks so much Laurie – always appreciate when you drop by K
haha….what a daring frog to sing so….smiles…and really cool the first two…from start of day to end….love the visuals…and the blush of that first light as well…smiles.
Thanks Brian – we have a small pond on our front patio – and these little guys can get LOUD! K
oh i like the cheeks blushing crimson in the sun and the silver crown..nice…and the last one cracked me up…singing of sex and immortality…haha..not a bad song at all..smiles
Smiling back, Claudia – thanks so much! K
Lovely cinquain poems ~ I specially like the pale pink morning of the new day ~
Thank you – so happy you liked it! K
Wow, that last me brought a smile to my face
Thanks Bjorn! Glad it did! K
