For Colleen’s Tanka Tuesday challenge, a butterfly cinquain.


stone dropped

in a still pool

and ripples race, breaking

reflections of the sky into


wavelets of the ocean sky flow,

ebb, reform unbroken,

returning home,

  1. I LOVE how full-circle your words are. The butterfly cinquain has become a signature form for you. It fits your thoughts. Even more, I enjoy how you didn’t use the phrase. Meaning inferred is so much more meaningful. โค
