National Poetry Month – Five for Five

The April 5th prompt from is to write a cinquain (a five line poem with specific syllable and stress requirements). Hence…five lines for the fifth day of the month.

I share this with, and for, my readers who live with pain every day, or who care for those who do.

I have chosen to accompany the poem with a haunting photograph of a misty Ukrainian forest in the enchantingly named Feofania, a park near Kiev.

Foggy wood


gray gloom

the fog of pain

envelops and befouls

dense air that brooks no movement from

the snare

  1. Congratulations on the cinquain. It captures the sense of being trapped by pain, unable to fight it. Like trying to fight fog.
