When power leads man toward arrogance, poetry reminds him of his limitations. When power narrows the areas of man's concern, poetry reminds him of the richness and diversity of his existence. When power corrupts, poetry cleanses.

I played around to pun on cinquain to make it Cain's sin:

My hand
once held a stone
that was harder than hate,
its scalloped edge was knapped to rip
your flesh.

Anger,
scalded my lips.
I sang you songs of death.
Yet now, I kneel down beside you
to taste

the wounds
that are your head,
to give my heat to you,
to sing no hate, to use no stone.
I sound

my heart
and I wonder
why we shared a mother?
When you were not at all like me.
Brother.

Hi Jax,

You did a very nice job with your series of Cinquains to tell the story of the first murder recorded in the Bible. I enjoyed your "Cain's" viewpoint and the remorse he must have felt after the deed was done.

Question: Did you mean "heat" in the last Cinquain or is it a typo and should have read "heart"?

Thanks,
Larry

Hey Daniel, if you are as surprised as I was with Jax's entry then join the club. I will continue on with our string with this double acrostic Cinquain:


shoes to fit

sock it
heavily so
our big shoes won’t fall off
each step we take and e coli
stays out

regret

to help clean your aura
except when an honest skeptic
sees through
