haikus and cinquains

join us at poetry.wisch.org for a rousing round of haiku’s and cinquains.

for those of you who don’t remember, a haiku is a three line poem of 5-7-5 syllables, and a cinquain is a five line poem of twenty-two syllables in the form of 2-4-6-8-2.

my current favorites:

poetry is hard
when seventeen syllables
is all you can use.

ten acts of song and dance.

i hope.
