Merry Christmas


shepherds
while in their fields
a bright glow hit the sky
then angels came to calm their fears
in life

singing
in words they shared peace, love and joy
night never seemed so bright
His soul was pure
Amen.



Attempted a Mirror Cinquain for the first time. 

Cinquain -> a form with one 5-line stanza in a syllabic pattern of two, four, six, eight, two.
Reverse cinquain -> a form with one 5-line stanza in a syllabic pattern of two, eight, six, four, two.
Mirror cinquain -> a form with two 5-line stanzas consisting of a cinquain followed by a reverse cinquain.
