Further ticks Clock
I ponder in Shock
At least mine has 11 words.
Actually, I just tried my hands on cinquain, a form of poetry with just 5 lines and 11 words. As evident from my composition,
Line 1 has just one word, i.e. the title; line 2 has two words that describe the title; line 3 has three words that tell the action; line 4 has four words that express the feeling; and line 5 has one word which recalls the title.
It need not rhyme. Nonetheless, I composed a rhyming cinquain. An achievement indeed, for a blogger who claims to be experiencing a block as massive as a rock!
1. Before someone objects to my tampering with the semantics, I must admit that the action in line 3 and the feelings expressed in line 4 should be of the same subject. However, in my poem, while action is performed by the clock, the feeling is mine. Now that's what they call poetic licence, isn't it!
2. Cinquain has many variants which can be checked here, here, here and here.
