A few reflective cinquains

A few cinquains about modern life. They’re not my usual style, but I thought I might try something a bit different and they’re pretty short and sweet, so perfect for reflecting on life and observations whilst on the move.

Panic

Room

Tidy, safe

Engulfing, trapping, stunting

A clean prison to live out your days

Anxiety

 

The Commute

Wind

Untameable, wild

singing, playing, dancing

An upturned umbrella on the pavement

Monday

 

The 5am stumble

Music

Early, cold

Calling, splashing, whistling

Walking home after dancing

Birdsong
