Egrets Reading

Cinquains in Loch Raven Review

Four of my cinquains are now online in the Winter 2005 issue of Loch Raven Review, "Pirelli's Miracle Elixir," "Time to Rebuild," "After the Cows Come Home," and "Revision."

"Pirelli's Miracle Elixir" is one of my series of cinquains written in honor of the plays my daughter has appeared in. This cinquain has nothing at all to do with Sweeney Todd from a story-line perspective, but the title of one of the songs inspired me to write a poem about a friend of mine who developed a rare middle-age case of Hodgkin's Disease. (She's in complete remission, by the way!)

My "Romeo and Juliet" poem, Theatre appeared in the now defunct Wilmington Blues in 2004. My "The Skin of Our Teeth" and "Man of La Mancha" poems have yet to be published, and I've yet to write one for "Once Upon a Mattress" or "The Mikado."
