Reverse Cinquain for #tankatuesday

Tall pines

More still than a seventh grader

Strong, firm, and evergreen

Subtle wind shift

Life map

This weeks challenge was to write about what you see through your window. I was in class when I read the prompt, so I decided to use my wonderfully large windows as an inspiration.

I don’t think I quite expressed the contrast between the stillness of the trees and the restlessness of the student, but that’s what I’m going for.

  1. Your reverse cinquain poem is truly captivating. The phrase “subtle wind shift” makes me imagine a calm and peaceful environment. The final line “Life map” is thought-provoking and leaves me wondering about the significance of the trees in the bigger picture of life. Thank you for sharing this beautiful piece of poetry. πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘ŒπŸ˜Š

  2. Nature of earth and of people are often contrasting rather than complementary.
    I used to teach pre-schoolers… A pinch of that energy would be nice to have (now that I’m older…). Lovely Reverse Cinquain.
