Traditional Cinquain Two

Jumping
quickly forward
Falling backwards slowly
Ungraciously I am losing
control

    Thanks Nette, only my second one so it's fitting that there is some uneasiness. I am pleased you enjoyed it.

    Thanks Richard-- same as your other one... great write and confirmation of a tradition Cinquain. I think I will try this sometime... Haiku can get... ummm .. difficult and yet a quick fix if that makes sense... will give them a break for awhile.

    My Achilles heal is the dreaded Haiku. It feels so unnatural to me which is funny when you consider the main topic deals with nature.

    Richard, I hope that this is just a practice in expressing your poetic talent and not reflective of life at the moment. I hope that God makes your paths straight. Said a prayer for you today.
