This is my attempt at a Cinquain. I hope you enjoy it. - 3rd November 2011.


Give me your hand.

Dancing
With an astute
Calmness; Slowly fading
Into stifled apologies
Unheard.

How lovely to find you here again, my friend :-)
Well, I like this very much, a form I hadn't encountered until today: 2-4-6-8-2. The break in the third line creates a lovely rise-and-fall motion, which adds to the emotional impact of the piece.
Nice one, JA. Applause!
