Friday Night Bath (NaPoWriMo Day 5)

Chickens

roll in the herb

garden, flipping the earth,

burbling, trilling their joy in good

hygiene.

Today’s prompt was from our host at NaPoWriMo: write a cinquain. This is a form I’ve not tried before. The sequence is five lines of 2/4/6/8/2 syllables, with 1/2/3/4/1 stresses in the respective lines. I guess it can be done completely in iambs, but isn’t required (which is good because I didn’t read that rule until I was done!). I found the cinquain more challenging than it looks.
