Writing Cinquain Poetry


Gary R. Hess

There are many different types of poetry. It comes in many types and genres. As with other writings, we must first understand the meaning and power behind each poetic style before choosing which one best fits our purpose.

Although the cinquain poem is little known outside the poetry circle, it is an excellent way to convey emotion. The poem can be written in one of three styles, each holding a separate purpose. The style types are outlined below:

Type 1:

This style is the most lenient of the three. The amount of syllables or type of word doesn’t matter. This is for a more ‘free style’ theme.

Line1: One word

Line2: Two words

Line 3: Three words

Line 4: Four words

Line 5: One word

Type 2:

This version of the cinquain poem is the most constrained version and is most often used to describe an object.

Line 1: A noun

Line 2: Two adjectives

Line 3: Three -ing words

Line 4: A phrase

Line 5: Another word for the noun

Type 3:

This version does not limit the amount of words or type of words, but merely the amount of syllables. This allows for a more flowing poem and can be used to incorporate a smooth feeling with its words.

Line1: Two syllables

Line2: Four syllables

Line 3: Six syllables

Line 4: Eight syllables

Line 5: Two syllables

Other aspects to keep in mind include staying on topic, keep the interest of you readers, and most importantly express emotion. I order to have a successful cinquain, not unlike other poetry, the poet must choose his words carefully and construct a meaningful and heartfelt poem.

As well, when writing poetry be sure to keep it fun. Don’t stress over it and only write (seriously, that is) when you have inspiration. This will make your poetry more meaningful and allow you to feel better about your work.

When your business is the media, you’ll find that there are a number of situations in which you can benefit from having a CD/DVD publisher for your company. This is true whether you are a community newspaper that has a distribution of 5000 copies or less or your media company focuses on providing photographs to other businesses: with a CD/DVD publisher, you will find that you are able to expand your target market, offer bonuses to subscribers and more.

For example, let’s say that your company creates a music and entertainment paper that is distributed on a weekly basis. There may come a point in time when you don’t just want to write about the local bands, you don’t simply want to tell readers what an up and coming band that is playing in town next weekend sounds like, you want to be sure that they can hear it for themselves. At that point, you’ll find that you have two options. First, you could just put a streaming sample online for them to listen to, or if you have a CD/DVD publisher you can burn discs that will give your readers a chance to just put a disc into the stereo and listen to it.

Similarly, if your company’s involvement with the media is related to providing images of events or even political cartoons, having a CD/DVD publisher will give you a better way of distributing materials to them. With a CD/DVD publisher, you will be able to provide them with different samples of the photos from an event: some resized for print and others touched up. You’ll also be able to include on the CD or DVD copies of signed releases from those individuals who were in the photo so that the papers know that they will not get in trouble for using the photo.

Of course, there are a number of other ways in which having a CD/DVD publisher can benefit your media company as well:

1. With a CD/DVD publisher, you can provide back issues of your publication without having to stockpile physical copies; just keep the files sorted an when a back issue is requested you will be able to publish and mail a disc;

2. With a CD/DVD publisher, you can be sure that you are able to distribute marketing materials for your advertisers. For example, say that in a technology publication you are writing a review of a new Point of Sale system; when your company has a CD/DVD publisher, you’ll be able to distribute a limited trial version of that system.

While the above are common examples of the ways in which media companies can benefit from a CD/DVD publisher, you’ll find that there are many other options as well. Ultimately, you’ll discover that, with a CD/DVD publisher there are a number of ways in which you can enhance the way your business does business you will also find that there are many different ways in which you can save money in the process.

What is it about fashion that gets us all worked up into a trendy frenzy where we just have to have the latest designs from Christian Dior or Donatella Versace? Your irresistible passion for fashion can be unhealthy for your pocket. It is not uncommon for women to downsize on a loaf to that of a crumb on the dining table so she can wear clothes tagged with expensive designer labels.

Remember that fashion designers are not paying the price on the tag like you. If you can not afford Jimmy Choo shoes, fine, go find something similar, it makes sense. For every new creation donned on a boutique mannequin, you can bet there is a replica of that exact design to be found elsewhere at half the price. It is at times like this, if you are handy with a needle and cotton then the world is your oyster. All items of clothing is tailored made this way, so what makes Versace’s thread any different to yours to be able to charge extortionate prices

Updates on what is new in the fashion world, is brought to our attention via the catwalk. modelled by off balance out of rhythm long legged striding models who parade up and down dressed in Stella McCartney and Vivienne Westwood designs for the world to see?. Famous fashion designer creations are viewed by thousands and sadly a great percentage of that number will be wearing them also. Not wanting to burst your bubble but this is a sure sign to say that what you wear is not unique or original. Why not change all that now and become the new chic you, in style, in manner and personality. Clothes will always tell a story about the person wearing them. How many people have you criticised because of their clothes. Have you ever passed a silent comment under your breath because a person’s attire looks hideous? If so, then it does not have to be pointed out that these same assumptions from other people will apply to you also.

Are you an avid follower of fashion and find it costly to keep up with the latest trends, fret not make your own. Fashion magazines have all the gossip on who is wearing what. Keep a mental snapshot in mind of your favourite designer Versace dress, shoes or jewellery, this will help motivate you into becoming your very own personal fashion designer.

What you need to make a necklace.

Tiger-tail and crimp beads

Wire cutters

Round nose, chain nose, or crimping pliers

8 4mm beads colour of your choice

Tiger-tail is thin nylon-coated steel cable. It is strong, durable, and rigid. However it can kink, so be careful. Soft-flex can be used and is similar but much softer and less prone to kinking. Decide how much space you want between the beads, 2 inch spaces between each threaded bead is very fetching. Necklace can be long or short, personal preference prevails.

Snip a piece of tiger-tail to the length required. Slide a crimp bead and one part of the clasp onto the tiger-tail. Slide the tiger-tail back through the crimp bead, pull it tight, and then flatten the crimp bead with pliers so it stays. It can be a fiddly job but a very rewarding one. Prepare an area where you will not be disturbed and place all your bits and bobs onto a piece of card, this will help keep your lines level.


Plain shoes are very easily decorated. A little glue a pair of tweezers and a steady hand can have you add bows, sequins, beads, pearls even fine link chains. Flowers can also be used, nuts and bolts if you like.

Charity shops are a great place to buy frocks. Check the buy and sell column in the newspaper for bargains. The plainer the dress, the easier you will find to decorate i.e. lace shoulder throw over. Neck scarf plaited around the neck, choker tight or loose. Satin sashes circling the waist or sloping on the hip even coloured rope. Frayed rope neck pieces go well with a straw hat (no noose please). Hats is the icing on the cake for setting off an outfit; they can be decorated too match your dress shoes and jewellery.

Fashion is it not all about the actual clothing item; it is how you dress it up that makes an outfit.
