Egrets Reading

Eggshell Moon

My cinquain, “Eggshell Moon”, which was voted the CinquainPoets “Cinquain of the Month” has been illustrated by Candace McBride and is at her website as her October 7th Poesy Comic:

The "Cinquain of the Month" is done mostly for fun as a way to build up creative activity on the CinquainPoets list. Candace and I came up with this over two years ago, and it's worked well for the list as a way of germinating poems. For awhile, I disqualified myself as the list owner, but was eventually convinced that it was silly since the voting tallies were being handled by other list members and the contest isn't done for fame and fortune as much as for fun.
