2020 WEEKLY #TANKA TUESDAY #POETRY CHALLENGE NO. 204, #THEMEPROMPT #Crapsey #Cinquain

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

The moon

Caressed by hands

Fairy stardust twinkling

Kind eyes flutter open to see

The world!
