    New Poetry Game-Cinquain Chain- Come on, it's easy and fun!

    The traditional cinquain is based on a syllable count.

    line 1 - 2 syllables
    line 2 - 4 syllables
    line 3 - 6 syllables
    line 4 - 8 syllables
    line 5 - 2 syllables

    in this game, take the last line of the previous persons cinquain, the same way we play the shared Haiku game.

    I'll start:

    These words
    are black and white
    but bring color to mind
    lemons, sun dried blue-bonnets and
    red barns


    next person begins with red barns
    "Don't matter who they are, anybody sets foot in this house, they are company and don't let me catch you remarking on their ways like you were so high and mighty."

    Red barns
    come across the
    car window as one drives
    across the Pennsylvania
    country

    How's that? Cool. A little harder than haiku but not as hard as tanka.

    This looks really interesting!

    Red barns
    present in farms
    are to little children
    a source of entertainment
    and fun

    (Is this the right way to play this game? )

    I sang of leaves, of leaves of gold, and leaves of gold there grew.

    and fun
    such a strange word
    sometimes makes me wonder
    if, maybe, Speaking's not pretty
    at all

    at all
    of these swollen
    rivers churning around
    the halfway drowned and willing blind,
    I look.

    wow....this looks really hard but im up for a poetry challenge! great idea Riesa!

    I look
    Past the beggars
    Grime and caked blood
    No importance ,I have deadlines
    Pennies
    I declare after all there is no enjoyment like reading! How much sooner one tires of anything than of a book! When I have a house of my own, I shall be miserable if I have not an excellent library.

    Pennies
    swing the swollen
    stack of change we treasure,
    each lends its weight to our amount
    of time.

    I apologize for the double post, but I couldn't resist.


    Of time
    and human faults
    we grow restless, anxious
    to see the end of our parade
    of pride.

    of pride
    she knows little
    though she's witnessed it in
    others reeling drunk with their own
    glory

    glory
    that with a shift
    of image becomes a
    warrior singing, his voice
    like rain

    Glory
    glazes the eyes
    of those to remember,
    parchment no proper tomb to store
    the dead.


    Like rain
    a poem will fall,
    splashing like a rogue fish
    upon the surface of senses,
    unkept.

    unkept
    benevolence
    flushes from fog-strewn hearts
    frightening those unaccustomed
    to gain

    To gain
    Sweat leaks on cards
    Body shakes, picks it up
    To win, lose my dier misfortune
    I lost

    I lost
    the thoughts that float
    and quiver in a breeze,
    like snow they gather only in
    the cold.
