...where Pen is mightier than the sword...
The poem's as playful as your April.unfortunately for us, its just relentless tropical heat now - no clouds, no rain.

A beautiful image, Jinksy! Our April weather is as bad as yours, it would seem... Just a bit colder since we're further north!
I imagine this as being the poem of a despondent weather reporter, looking out at this year's April variations!
We had nearly summer-like temperatures at the beginning of April and now it's cool enough for a jacket.
Strangely, it's rather the same in the Southern Hemisphere in April, but with days growing progressively colder rather than warmer.
It's going to snow here today! I really like the last stanza!
I am a fan of hail. It makes things interesting.
lovely exploration of April's vagaries - April's always a bit like this for us, but lately it seems more so...
indeed an unpredictable month...a good reminder that most months are really...and we can weather the storms and droughts nonetheless.
Ah the April tease...love this poem of the unpredictable.
You just never know this time of year, and as warm as it has been so early...I see some heallacious storms a comin in the next few weeks. Great colorful photo, and wonderful cinquain.
I like the poetry form....its crazy here too. Now its winter like cold, and we thought its spring ~ And of course, beautiful photo ~
No photo, this - it started as a creation using ArtRage on my Bamboo tablet, which I subsequently photo shopped... Guess that makes it a mixed media graphic? :)
Oh, very fun. It snowed here today too, in April, right? Love the form and the art is fantastic as well. Enjoyed this. Thanks
you remained true to the form and deliver us a warm gust of spring ponderings.
You ain't seen April in Seattle.
What's it like, then? Don't keep me in suspense?! LOL
The perfect poem for April! It's a very mixed month isn't it - not sure what it will do one day to the next.CJ x
How lovely xx :-)
Enjoy the idea of April having "turncoat" personality!
Perfect form for April...nicely done! I'm watching the sunshine and the rain fall...just wondering will it snow or bring thunder? Enjoyed your read, as usual!
WOW! I love this! I always want to see how you re-create those Mag pictures...so what is Cinquain form?
Counting the syllables in each of the five-line groups, Donna, gives you the clue... You'll see there's a 2 / 4 / 6 / 8 / 2 pattern in each stanza I've written. The name 'Cinquain' is no more nor less that the French word for 'five'...Rhyming is optional...
Lovely. Hopefully May will behave better ;-)
Nice job with that form! Madeleine Begun Kane
Well done with a tricky form. And now we are told that your part of the world is experiencing the "wettest drought ever"
