Cartwheel – a cinquain

Because
When he smiles my
Insides do a cartwheel
Tumbling off the edge into skin
Shivers

Messy
Books, bags, slippers,
Sprawled and scattered on floor
Sight unfit for eyes of guests, but
It’s home.

Biking
Breezy, fun
Rolling, gliding, whizzing
Downhill with no pedals
Flight

I remember learning how to write a cinquain in elementary school, but not the kind described on the NaPoWriMo website. So I tried my hand at the original American cinquain and the more ‘juvenile’ didactic cinquain. The first is syllabic, the second counts words; they were fun to think up so I wrote two today.

Thanks for reading,
