Today and The Penguin Poet

Today’s prompt was to create a cinquain, which has a specific rhythm and a five line stanza structure.


when I woke up
enclosed in loving arms,
no problems could ever invade
my heart.

As a bonus here is my micropoetry for #PenguinPoetry:

The Penguin Poet

If there are two things that I love,
it is penguins and poetry.
I would love to see a penguin write
some poetry for me.
