The Cinquain Poetry Writing Project examines a five line poetic form called a Cinquain.  These poems have a set syllabic pattern where the first line consists of two syllables and the following three lines increase in length at a rate of two syllables per line before concluding in a two syllable final line (i.e. 2/4/6/8/2).  However, there are variations to the pattern that include longer poems, multiple verses and even a complete inversion of the syllabic structure, so plenty of variety for poets to sink their teeth into.

All members and authors are invited to participate in this Writing Project.  If you think you would like to take part, please click on the "Participate" link in the banner above, where you will find the rules related to this Writing Project, links to information about cinquain poetry to help you understand this poetic form, and the submission form you are required to use when submitting your cinquains to The Authors Haunt.

 

Based on fact - because sometimes the most terrible things can happen almost in the blink of an eye.
