Wonderful to hear your voice, Kay.A rich, suggestive cinquain. Your appreciation of what the form can do is profound -- so many metrical and musical possibilities.The allusive "Piqued Twins" made me smile. You are one of the few contemporary cinquain poets to use titles and render them integral as a sixth line.
Kay,glad you're back with a well-crafted poem.I second Brian. The allusion adds emotional weight to the poem.Look forward to reading more of your poems.Chen-ou
It's very good to hear your comments again. It may take me a bit to get back in the groove, but I am looking forward to it (and spring!).Many thanks for your constant encouragement.~Kay
