Today, I tried to take it easy, and did come up with a cinquain.
This is great exercise for my starting-to-be-elderly brain. I don't know if I have thanked the members of the writers' group Imaginary Garden with Real Toads for giving me real impetus on my voyage back to writing chapters for An Unfittie's Guide to Adventurous Travel... if I haven't done so, then I thank you now. It's been a long dry spell, this bout of writer's block, and writing humorous essays is difficult (at the moment impossible) to do on demand, but I do feel it coming.
Meanwhile, posting to photo-memes is great fun, and has served to keep our travels fresh in my mind, while writing-memes like microfiction (Grandma's Goulash: Succinctly Yours) and Magpie Tales have led me to make an effort. Thanks, Grandma. Thanks, Tess.
Today's submission to Real Toads follows. The 2-4-6-8-2 syllable pattern is the cinquain's. The internal rhyme is my own.
talking, learning, thriving,
striving toward futures unknown.
