“Snowflakes,” #CinquainPoetry #ABRSC #SynonymsOnly

Hello and welcome to my contribution to my weekly Tanka Tuesday Poetry Challenge. This week we had to find synonyms for “cover and precipitation.” I decided to create a cinquain using the words, snowflakes, and shield.

Here are the rules for writing 5 line Cinquain Poetry:

“Snowflakes”

Snowflakes –

sparkling diamonds

snowing, blowing, freezing

frosty iciness chilling shield

crystals
