Memories in Cinquain

A Cinquain is an unrhymed poem consisting of five lines arranged in a special way and an example of shape poetry. Because of the exact number of words required for each line of this poem, a unique, symmetrical shape is created from interesting, descriptive words.

Line1: One word (a noun, the subject of the poem)
Line 2: Two words (adjectives that describe the subject in line 1)
Line 3: Three words (-ing action verbs – participles – that relate to the subject in line 1)
Line 4: Four words (a phrase or sentence that relates feelings about the subject in line 1)
Line 5: One word (a synonym for the subject in line 1 or a word that sums it up)

Create your own Cinquain poem which can then be embroidered and used on a pillow or as the focal point of a quilt.
