A poem for DVerse. We are writing about shade today, and the poem must have the word “shade” in it. I decided to write two cinquains.

The shade,

Provides respite

From searing heat of day,

I hear it bid me welcome in

My need.


It weeps,

Willow’s branches

Cover me with caring:

It is okay to cry under

This tree.

  1. Wonderful response to the prompt! So glad you posted today. I especially LOVE the second one…a deep sigh, truly, an audible sigh escaped my lips at the ending of the second one. It is beautiful! The idea of the willow tree…..I LOVE willow trees. You’ve motivated me to think of the willow tree as a muse 🙂 Thank you for the inspiration….and again, this is such a beautiful natural image…I think it should be made into a sympathy card or a thinking of you card. Really. I love it! 🙂
