Friday Night Bath (NaPoWriMo Day 5)

Standard

Chickens

roll in the herb

garden, flipping the earth,

burbling, trilling their joy in good

hygiene.

Today’s prompt was from our host at NaPoWriMo: write a cinquain. This is a form I’ve not tried before. The sequence is five lines of 2/4/6/8/2 syllables, with 1/2/3/4/1 stresses in the respective lines. I guess it can be done completely in iambs, but isn’t required (which is good because I didn’t read that rule until I was done!). I found the cinquain more challenging than it looks.
