Cinquains for Lucy, Audrey, Candie and others

Hi there,

My latest attempts at Twin Peaks inspired poetry in different forms. These are cinquains, five-line poems which follow a specific syllable structure: 2-4-6-8-2. I tried to have a bit of fun with these and not make them too serious. Couldn’t help but go that way with one or two, though.


 

harry

Harry,

Doomed in loving,

One who betrayed his trust,

Left to wonder at her true guile,

Then weep.


audrey

Audrey,

Red-shoed temptress,

With beguiling nature,

Come tie me up in Gordian knots,

With you.


tremayne

Tremayne,

Fashion guru,

Expert with a tyre change,

But some questionable ethics,

Ring out.


candie

Candie,

Perfect in pink,

Deadly with a remote,

She’ll bring sarnies and traffic news,

On heels.


hawk

Tracker,

Your true ally,

Whose keen eyes miss nought,

Akin to his namesake above,

Hawk sees.


Norma_jennings

Norma,

Businesswoman,

Won’t stand for nonsense,

From wayward husbands or even,

Mother.


lucy

Which phone?

I’ll advise you,

Though perplexed you may be,

Cellular ones are an issue,

For me.

  1. My developer is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the costs. But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using Movable-type on a variety of websites for about a year and am nervous about switching to another platform. I have heard great things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can import all my wordpress content into it? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
