2015 SOLSC 16/31: Inspired by Kim and Elsie

                                    Today I join my fellow bloggers in "serving up a slice" 
to the Slice of Life (SOL) community.
Thanks to Stacey, Tara, Betsy, Dana, Beth, and Anna
for hosting this meeting place each day in March
                                                      and for nurturing our writing lives.

I was in search of a slice when I stumbled across Kim's cinquain at Learning Tour Writing Stop with three simple rules for writing cinquains from Kenn Nesbitt's Poetry4Kids:

1.  Cinquains are five lines long.
2.  They have 2 syllables in the first line, 4 in the second, 6 in the third, 8 in the fourth line, and just 2 in the last line.
3.  Cinquains do not need to rhyme, but you can include rhymes if you want to.

Here's my cinquain (thanks, Kim) inspired by the vagaries of our weather with a photo (thanks, Elsie) from today's walk.

Gloomy weekend
Windy, cloudy, rainy.
Monday broadcasts blue skies, sunshine,


  1. Love it!! Isn't it fun to be inspired, especially when you have met them. Sunshine. Yes!

  2. I did come to check and am happy that you were inspired! Plus I do think you correctly showed me how to cite an internet reference (which I did not know how to do but did in my own way) :) It is so great how we learn from one another.
    Your cinquain is stunning as it the picture! Blue skies ahead!

    1. Also, I am happy to be linked to my great friend elsie anytime! :)

  3. Dark and gloomy to brilliant sunshine, what a change in five short lines! Gorgeous picture, can't wait until we get some blooming trees. You remind me of the beauty to come.
