My Take – #TANKA TUESDAY #POETRY CHALLENGE NO. 208, #THEMEPROMPT

Our theme this week is Holiday Traditions. Colleen also wants us to write a cinquain.

CINQUAIN: A cinquain is a form of shape poetry that looks great centered on the page. The required syllables needed for each line give it a unique shape. The cinquain (aka the quintain or the quintet) is a poem or stanza of five lines.

The Crapsey cinquain is a five-line, non-rhyming poem featuring a syllable structure of 2/4/6/8/2.
