A Psalm of Cinquains - U, V, and W

"U"
Under
the shadow of
His Wing we pause, finding
a place to rest, sanctuary,
His Peace.

"V"
You are
the Vine, I am
just a branch - grafted in,
nourished by pure Love, flowing with
true Life.

"W"
Worship
Him in Spirit
and in Truth - reality
meets belief - and we offer all
to Him.

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- or more!)
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?
