Confused
Uncertain in chaotic world
Seeking a mind-peaceful
Assuredness
No doubts

Colleen’s syllabic poetry theme this week is  “FINDING CLARITY.”  I have approached it as an goal to which we can aspire.  It is written in the reverse Cinquain form. Collen’s useful poetry form “cheatsheet” notes that “a . . . cinquain is a form of shape poetry and is always centered on the page. The required syllables needed for each line give it a unique shape. The cinquain (aka the quintain or the quintet) is a poem or stanza of five lines.”  A reverse Cinquain is “a form with one 5-line stanza in a syllabic pattern of two, eight, six, four, two.”  Confused?  Well, I hope you find clarity.
