Come, Spring (a cinquain)
Pour through my pane
Melt ice around my heart
Transform my frozen mind gently

Can you believe it? An unprompted cinquain. Spring must be coming… Peace, Amy

Cinquains always make me feel good. I think I could read and perhaps write this form exclusively and be quite fulfilled. Yours, today, warmed my soul, too.

what is this ‘spring’ you speak of? saw snowflakes this morning!

Yes, this is beautiful. I really must try cinquains in one form or another. They look, read and feel so good in others hands. I might just dare.

you have a talent for poetry…this piece has some very subtle meanings (at least for me)
Thanks for the kind compliment and yes, you are right. I am likely to get a few horse dropping on me, but roses nor people cannot mature without a little fertilizer to help them along.

I like this one a lot. Spring is slow in coming up here in Maine. http://mainelymugups.blogspot.com/#!/2013/04/seasoned-with-salt.html
