    At the most basic level a cinquain is a five-line poem or stanza. Here are two variations.

    Line 1 - a one word title
    Line 2 - a 2 word phrase that describes your title or you can just use two words
    Line 3 - a 3 word phrase that describes an action relating to your title or just actions words
    Line 4 - a 4 word phrase that describes a feeling relating to your topic or just feeling words
    Line 5 - one word that refers back to your title

    Line 1 - two syllables
    Line 2 - four syllables
    Line 3 - six syllables
    Line 4 - eight syllables
    Line 5 - two syllables



    My Try:

    Life
    Long, Short
    Fun, Hard, Confusing
    Full of difficult decisions
    Birth

    Sleep
    Nocturnal consciousness
    Black dot awakens
    Dreams are sinless drugs
    Hope

    it's been awhile since I did one of these

    lost
    foggy mists
    obsuring sunshine moonlight
    footsteps echoing endless mazes
    ignorance
