A Psalm of Cinquains - h and I; j and k


"H"
Heaven...
radiant the
spectrum beams transparent...
a spectacular display of
Worship

"I"
I will
lay down my life,
take up my cross - that my
heart might be conformed; bearing His
image.

"J"
Jesus,
Messiah King.
Riding forth in splendor,
Hoofbeats sounding the rally cry...
Battle!

"K"
King of
Glory, let my
eyes see You, Your Presence,
infusing the fabric of days...
my days.

I recently got inspired by David's work in writing Psalm 119...and at the same time had come across this instruction (from an old homeschool English book) for writing cinquains...I am sure it wasn't just a serendipitous coincidence!  So here I am, taking the 26 letters of the English alphabet and creating my own Psalm of Cinquain for my Lord...(one a week for imperfect prose, now upped to 2!)

Here is the pattern for writing a cinquain:Line 1 - states the title.........................2 syllables
Line 2 - describes the title....................4 syllables
Line 3 - expresses an action ................6 syllables
Line 4 - expresses a feeling..................8 syllables
Line 5 - another word for the title.........2 syllables

Would you like to join me in writing your own?
