Two Cinquains


In response to
WordCatalyst Workshop prompt:



Brook Song Cinquain
 
crystal
brook song stirring
ascending chord bubbles
strummed on green grass violin strings
gleaming.



 
Blessed Snow Cinquain
 
plush quilts
of velvet snow
draped by white-gowned angels
over needy world's plaintive wails
for peace.

  1. "needy world's plaintive wails

  4. I'm doomed to run 'green grass violin strings' through my mind all morning. Such a musical phrase. ;) Nicely done.
