I haven't ever written a poem like this before, so I thought I'd try my hand at it! I feel like @Featherstone would appreciate this poem. :)

birds.
swift, deadly,
soaring, hunting, diving,
gliding through the air.
raptors.

If anyone's interested in the history of cinquains or the different forms they can be written in there's an article on YWS about that here.

Using the American Cinquain form - which uses slightly different requirements; the typical 2, 4, 6, 8, 2 syllable pattern & different requirements for the lines as well. Here's what I've got!

Month Musings

This May -
feather dust gone -
She's flown away too soon,
left only her shadow to miss.
Time; gone.
maybe i make up colors for poetic cadence, but i don't think i can ever love someone who doesn't understand that teal is a different color than dark cyan

Bookshelf

folding, storing, reserving,
