    wise words. ♥


  4. Love this, Becca. I enjoy having school kids write Cinquains to describe art when they visit the museum. Fun form and it teaches them a bit of grammer as well.

      Victoria – I think the cinquain is a fun form as well … great idea for the kids!! Wish I had been exposed to writing poetry at an earlier age … it never too late … but just think what I could have written by now if I had started earlier!! 😀

    I will meditate on this one all day. thanks for sharing it.


  6. souldipper says:

    Oh, that is a good one! Amazing how frightened and suspicious people can be/are about love. That Rumi certainly captured the nub of our lives!
