Peacock (Cinquain)

A cinquain is a short poem with 5 lines. The theme of the poem is a noun and the rest of it is written to describe that noun. This is the structure it follows:

First Line: A noun that is the subject of the poem as well as the title.
Second Line: Two words (Adjectives) that describe the title/noun.
Third Line: Three ‘ing’ words that also describe the noun.
Forth Line: A phrase with four words that relates to the noun.
Fifth Line: A synonym for the noun in the first line.

Peacock
Vivid, elegant
Shimmering, sparkling, strutting
A profound natural sight
beauty

    What a lovely site you have. Your peacock cinquain is clever. Have you ever seen a white peacock? The males can have a single blue eye in their tales.

    Thank you for visiting my site and leaving a comment. Glad you liked the short poems, rabbits and blogging. Hope you’ll stop by whenever fancy strikes you.

    Thank you for stopping by my blog. You cannot believe the excitement I felt when I came to yours and saw “Cinquain”. You see that was my very first introduction in fourth grade to writing poetry, and it was love at first sight. I plan to do a post about it sometime.

    The structure of a cinquain is rather amazing. I love your peacock verse. Now I have to try this! I’ll have to try one! Did I get it correct? Did I make a cinquain? (crossing fingers here!)
