Day 6: Stuck on Cinquains

Okay, so I’ve been sitting on this one for a couple of days and holding up proceedings. My hesitation stems from my lack of confidence in structured poetry of all kinds but I’ll bite the proverbial bullet and post this as well as the missing entries from the past couple of days. Which will bring us to today’s entry and another possible delay as I grapple with writing a poem in ottava rima
That which does not kill us makes us better poets… right?

Seasonal lover

Spring dawn
a moving green
remembering lost things
an horizon of memories

fortune making
tropical mold creeping
through untouched clothes in his closet

wedding day dreams
dappled light off water
an island of hope in chartreuse

still, singular
lingering on the edge
of the crowd wrapped in its own warmth

Don't forget to leave a comment on the Giveaway post to be in the draw!
