Cinquain with Monhegan

I was too busy writing cinquains to take photos of our polycom with Monhegan last week. It was great seeing Jessie and her two students, Dalton and Quinn. We have been getting together for a couple months now to work on different types of poetry forms. We have done haiku, limericks, and now cinquains. This was a pretty easy form and everyone wrote several down on our wiki to share with each other.

Here are some examples:



Ocean
Untamed, Unpredictable
Moving, Crashing, Pleasing
Fierce, Calm, Angry, Pure
Sea
By Dalton




butterfly
delicate beautiful
flying crawling walking
happy sad scared mad

swaying, noise, falling
dark, green, quiet, peaceful

Flying, clawing, biting
Wise, brave, silent, deadly
Reptiles.
