For our Week 6 contest, we are trying cinquains again. Our subject is . . .
Mr. George Knightley
Here's how we'll proceed:
By Saturday morning* (5th March), please send your cinquain to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
On Saturday afternoon, I post all the cinquains in one post here.
By Tuesday morning, please send your vote for the best cinquain to me at email@example.com
On Tuesday afternoon, I announce the week's winner.
*Morning is 9:00AM CST, i.e., GMT -6:00
A cinquain is a five-line poem often described as follows:
Line one contains one noun.
Line two contains two adjectives that describe line one.
Line three contains three verbs that relate to line one
Line four contains four words that describe “feelings” relating to line one. Often it is a full sentence.
Line five contains a synonym of line one, or a word that sums up the poem.
Other variations are accepted, but please stay within the general form.
Imagining, manipulating, caring
More bored than evil
