|is for Quintain|
Quintain poetry is any poetic form with a five line stanza. So a limerick is a quintain. I write a lot in fivers though not limericks, here’s a quintain based poem for this challenge:
I was never quite sure where it mattered,
if it was okay for the skin of my face
to look smooth and quite nonchalant
when its other side was constantly puckered,
clenched and convulsed in amazement.
Only a half-grain of this vast world
blew into my eyes from somewhere.
And I took it out, and just imagine!
It too had the same smoothness of skin
and the same uneven, awestruck innards!
Now that's turned out much easier than anticipated. Illustrates some moral about something, fear? reality? problems? whatever; you know what I mean. Always easier when faced fair and square.
