Roots, a Cinquain (April 5, 2013)

1-weeping-willow-monica-furlow You might think that an open prompt, like “write a cinquain” is the best possible place to start. For me, it’s like being forced to dive off the edge of a Hawaiian cliff, wearing a blindfold.  It’s having to choose the right spice from a rack that offers a hundred different choices. Too much, too wide.

I had started this month thinking I would use nature as a theme (this hasn’t worked out so far, unless you count the sea and a cockroach) so I went back to it for this, working to combine nature with a particular emotion.


Roots, a Cinquain

The roots
of the willow
measure the delicate
depth of the heart that holds us close
and dear.
