  1. This is awesome! I had a bit of a brainwave this morning! Ha ha… To start each chapter of Book Two with a Cinquain. I need to get practising, never written a Cinquain before! Think I’ll start with a normal one and then graduate to a reverse one!

    1. Exactly. I like to think that all poets and writers share the magic that others don’t see. 😀 ❤
