Colleen Chesebro’s Weekly Poetry Challenge #Cinquain #Poetry #5lines

untitled

The prompt words this week are Renew and Fresh. I chose to use improve for renew and shocking for fresh.

The idea for this particular Cinquain came from a recent critique session at Cambridge writers. I’d submitted the first draft of my prologue for Book Two. Not everyone is a fan of prologues so the comments were kind of… make it shorter…. so short it would be tiny. Dare I make it a four, five line prologue?  Anyone got any advice on tiny prologues?

I wrote this Cinquain with that in mind:

Hope you enjoyed my Cinquain…

Happy writing!

Bye for now,

Hi. Welcome to my blog: M J Mallon - Kyrosmagica Publishing. A blog about magic, books, writing, laughter, and much more! I'm a debut writer, my first YA fantasy novel The Curse of Time - Book 1 - Bloodstone is set in Cambridge. I write book reviews on my blog and on Goodreads. I have a penchant for travel and have relatives in far flung places, Australia, Malaysia, and Singapore, (my birthplace.) I grew up in in Bonnie Scotland, in Edinburgh, and now live in Cambridge. I love sunny, hot places, particularly Rome, Venice, Portugal, Barcelona, and I forgot to mention the sun drenched beaches of the Caribbean, how could I? I am lucky to have been blessed with two lovely daughters and a husband who I fondly refer to in this blog as my black sheep. Family joke! With my passion for travel, culture, beautiful beaches, good food, books, theatre, writing, and humour, I hope to keep you entertained. I'm loving every minute of this creative journey, please join me.

  1. I’m quite forgiving about prologues and do like them when they’re needed … I’ve read some that go on for a page or even more … they can add an epic feeling to the book you’re about to enter … or explain a previous one. Good luck with yours! Hope you’ve had a very special Mother’s Day,Marje. Xxx

    1. Hi Annika. Thank you for your thoughts on prologues. I agree. I’ve been out for lunch with my daughter for Mother’s day. Missing my eldest, though. Can’t believe she has been away for six months. 🙁 Hope you’ve had a lovely Mother’s day too. xxx

  2. Thanks for sharing, Marje. This is a lovely cinquain. 🙂
    Happy Mother’s Day! In Canada, we celebrate this special day in May. I have a twin sister and we were born on Mother’s day in 74′. My mom has been gone 20 years now, but she’s always with me. It’s a special day to celebrate all moms. XO

  3. Your Cinquain is stirring, Marje. Seed → Purpose. I like prologues when they’re short and used to set the stage for the novel. It’s a challenge to keep it short, to extract the kernels. Think ‘backdrop’ instead of ‘front and center.’ ❤
