This month’s theme is a wonderful evocative haiku written by Sue Vincent:
clouds cover the moon,
beyond dawn’s pale horizon
sun rises unseen

I’m going to attempt to write a crapsey cinquain – never done one of these before, so I used Colleen’s handy poetry cheat guide: https://wordcraftpoetry.com/tanka-tuesday-poetry-challenge-cheat-sheet/
The Crapsey cinquain is a five-line, non-rhyming poem featuring a syllable structure of 2/4/6/8/2. Choose words that create drama which builds into the fourth line. Remember, the turn occurs on line five, the most important line. This is where you change your focus away from the drama in some interesting way. Surprise your readers!
The World in Stardust
Caressed by hands
Fairy stardust twinkling
Kind eyes flutter open to see

I enjoyed writing this poem.
All of my books under my Kyrosmagica Publishing imprint include poetry, do check them out. I’d love it if you’d read one of my works: https://www.amazon.co.uk/M-J-Mallon/e/B074CGNK4L
Happy Sunday all,
I love your poem. It feels like fairy dust on the breeze.
Ah thank you so much. Means so much especially as I am having some doubts about the last line. Tricky form that crapsey cinquain!
Your piece brings magic into focus 😀
Ah, thank you. That was my intention. <3
I like it Marje! The cinquain is one of my favorite forms. ❤
Thank you Colleen. Sorry for late reply just found you tucked away in my pending file!
It’s ok. I know how WP is. 🤣
A lovely image conjured tehre, Marje 🙂
