Breath held
Excited anticipation
Dreams that their team will win
They fill the stands
Trusting


Colleen’s syllabic challenge this week is to write a poem using synonyms for eager and hope. As sports often have reversals, I have gone with a reverse cinquain form.

Crowned (ABP 9)

Confined
And Arrested 
A captive tightly bound
Led before a court kangaroo
Silent

Taunted
New judge to face
Unwelcome case propound
Sent away – another verdict
To seek

Palace
King’s judgement seat
“Perform some magic feat”
No “magic” tricks exhibited 
Quiet

Return
Caesar’s law face
Free him or another?
Fickle masses – criminal free
Fate seal

Beaten
Thorn-crowned visage
Cross through city to bear
Raised upon post of shame and death
“Finished”

August Bible Poems 9 – I thought a crown cinquain would be a symbolically suitable form for this poem.
