Softly...gently

      softly …gently
             showering blossom
                     mimicking
                  languidly
                        falling
                     snow
                        falling
                  languidly
                         mimicking
         blossom showering
                          gently…softly

    sharon, I am just going down your row of poems and not finding anything new to respond to, so thanks for your lovely comments to me since yesterday, and yes, sad for me, that passoin poem is pure fiction. I know very little about that topic and was a virgin when I married! (I live in Utah, the only state where that is the "norm") haha. LUv, Andrea

    sharon, which is for palindrome contest? I gotta try one of these? I just hope I can be inspired. As for the cinquain contest, I am seeing people actually use the image of HIgh Five and I am gonna feel stupid if he wants us to do that (the description said it could be ANY theme). But I messed up in his last contest and did a funny epidgram while all the winners did serious stuff. ok, I'll look for your blog as I go off. LUv, Andrea
