Thanks to Jordan of Literary Fuzz for introducing me to the CINQUAIN. Like Haiku, Cinquain are usually nature-themed and need not be titled. Spring, with emerging green and abundance of vibrant flowers, lends itself well to this form, twenty-two syllables divided 2-4-6-8-2 over its five lines. Go outside, look around, then grab your pencil and try one!
