Pensieve's Poetic License

This month, Robin of Pensieve's Poetic License challenge is to write a fall-inspired cinquain. Fall is my favorite season, so I was happy to see this month's challenge! As far as the cinquain goes, though...it's my first attempt at one. You be the judge.


Leaves

Leaves
Crisp, red
Falling, dancing, whirling
God's canvas in motion
Beauty

I love it!

Very pretty. It paints a great picture, even before you see the photo.

Jeni, I love it. If this is your first cinquain, it sure is a good one. Like Steph said, it paints a great picture before you even see it. The picture you selected is beautiful. I like Fall and fall colors, just not the nippy air.

Beautiful. Love the picture, too :) You've got me craving some apple cider!

That was a very sweet one!

Oh I love it! Dancing and Whirling? The perfect -ing words! :) I also like the picture AND how you used beauty as the word that is supposed to reiterate the first word instead of an expected synonym - they are beautiful, very much so. Thanks for this!

Gorgeous--I love the concreteness of those first three lines.
