This is a prompting Blog

My intent here is to write a poem from the prompt I give to you , the reader, in hopes that it will inspire something and get others to write with me.

Today's Prompt is Crapsey cinquains (Reverse+butterfly+mirror)

We love the  Crapsey cinquains ... Today we ask that you follow along and do the reverse with a butterfly and a mirror...

Reverse is a form with one 5-line stanza in a syllabic pattern of two, eight, six, four, two. (2,8,6,4,2)

Butterfly is a nine-line syllabic form with the pattern two, four, six, eight, two, eight, six, four, two. (2,4,6,8,2,8,6,4,2)

Mirror is a form with two 5-line stanzas consisting of a cinquain followed by a reverse cinquain. ( 2,4,6,8,2,   2,8,6,4,2 )

So here we go... OURS IS...

Day dreams 
fantastic fleeting images
freely floating on by
in breezes soft
and warm

on fluffy clouds
reminders of cut grass
fresh and moist from the last nights dew
while we
roll about like a careless child
high upon a white cloud
or a dragon

wind in our hair
happiness in our eyes
love in our young and tender hearts
fill me
reminders of our happiness
touching my heart deeply
and I turn home
to you
