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.
oh my will it ever be done?
(composed tonight near the end of the first act)…
