Light Bulb Moment!

I've been thinking very hard about what kind of poem to write next for my darling Mickeybear.



Should I write another sonnet? Sonnets are lovely. But I want a new challenge.



I could write another climbing rhyme, a pantoum, or a ghazal! Those forms are challenging, but still, I want to try a new form.



What should it be, I wonder? Blank verse? But that's not new; I already did that in my recent dorsimbra. I could write an epic poem, but with Mom hogging the computer so much to write her novel, the length of an epic might be a problem.



Wait, I know, I know! *smile*! I shall write...


...a Cinq-Cinquain!

I had never heard of a cinq-cinquian before, so I clicked the link to find out about it. You are so clever to know about so many different types of poetry. I'm sure Mickey will love it. I love the traffic cat effect when your lightbulb went off.
