Reena gives us an excellent example of a “Garland Cinquain.” See how her words tell the story of the image with each of her cinquain poems? Well done. I love it! ❤

Reena Saxena

freshness

being challenged

by collective wisdom

border line of existence

battles

life

unlined by

threads of experience

weaves rawness in embroidered

perseverance

mature

mind regrets

its gutsy thoughtlessness

belie self-imposed suffering

stillness

time

watches amused

on the sideline

recurring stories of conflict

sangfroid

contact

poking embers

unfolding fresh meaning

generating respect, all battles

ending

freshness

unlined by

its gutsy thoughtlessness

recurring stories of conflict

ending

    1. Each cinquain plays off the previous one – thus, a garland of thoughts. I’m impressed with poem. 😀
