At Carpe Diem we are trying our hands at a Cinquain. At least for me it is my first. A bit nervous about this I am! 🙂 Below are the rules:
First line: a one-word subject or title.
Second line: two adjectives which describe the subject.
Third line: three verbs relating to the subject.
Fourth line: four words forming a phrase, sentence, or set of feelings relating to the subject.
Fifth line: one word which summarizes the poem or restates the subject.

The second and more traditional type is simpler and requires only that the pattern of syllables per line in the poem is 2, 4, 6, 8, 2. (In other words, the first line has two syllables, the second has four, etc.)

Desire

desire’s

dangerous glow

flickers to tantalise

I wade in the flow that is your

yearning
