Day 5 – Autumn Twilight (Cinquain)

Today’s Prompt: Write a cinquain. I have to admit that I tend to be more of a “rhymer” – I like verses to rhyme, which is probably not surprising considering I grew up on Mother Goose’s nursery rhymes and Robert Louis Stevenson’s poetry. Having said that, after writing the cinquain below, I think that the power of a non-rhyming piece is perhaps in its descriptive strength as opposed to its rhyming and rhythm. Just a thought…

The Autumn Twilight

pungent, smoky blue haze

About One Day Closer To My Dream Life

Hi, I'm Angel, and I'm so glad you stopped by. Although Life took me down another road, since childhood I have loved writing and the power of language to evoke feelings and memories, to communicate with the hundreds of people we come into contact with and build relationships with along the way, and to impart ideas with. It's high time that I reunite with my old pleasure and passion, and start writing down all those words that are rushing around aimlessly in my head, jostling with each other to be heard. Sometimes we most fear doing what we love most in case it doesn't work out as we hope, but sometimes we just need to take that chance regardless! Who knows, maybe those words and plots and characters will take me on a journey that others will get to share with me, and lead me one step closer to living my dream life... I hope so!
