Random Acts: A Mirror Cinquain

Poverty, Homeless, Frankfurt


Colleen’s syllabic poetry challenge this week is to write a poem on the theme of the following quote:

“How far that little candle throws his beams! So shines a good deed in a weary world.”

― William Shakespeare, The Merchant of Venice

Here is my take on the challenge using the 2-4-6-8-2-2-8-6-4-2 symbol mirror cinquain form:

Coin in cup dropped
Second hand jacket from
Charity shop bought on a whim
Insignificant as it seems
Someone’s life has been changed
By such an act
As these
