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 are trying something new and are not sure of how well it can be done, so for today's prompt you may choose to do one or all of the following Crapsey cinquains ...

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...

Time of gathering family
remembrance of grace
heavenly love

of pink and blue
pastels painted in skies
pictures of the love He bestows
a young child's thrill of the hunt
for plastic pastel eggs
filled with candy
sweet treat

think of the Lord
all your beliefs in life
Play with your young ones while you can
remember when you were once young
go ahead and let loose
Have a happy
