Tomorrow’s poem was one that I ended up investigating different styles for in an attempt to truly capture the real feeling of it. During this brief research into different poetic styles, I came across cinquains. There are a number of different definitions and rules for these five-line poems, similar to a haiku in ways. The rules I used are as follows:
- Subject, noun, usually 2 syllables
- 2 adjectives, 4 syllables
- 3 verbs (-ing conjugations), 6 syllables
- A phrase about the feeling of the subject, 8 syllables
- Another noun for the subject, 2 syllables
I thought this was quite a fun style, so I jotted down a quick, cheesy one about one of my favourite hobbies (lifestyle choices?): unicycling. This is almost a hint about tomorrow’s poem, but that’ll be then. For now, a unicycle cinquain:
Rolling, gliding, flying.
Complete, continuous control.
