The Enemy


Cinquians are five line poems, there are five types of these poems. One of these types Reverse cinquain is the one I used. It follows a form with one 5-line stanza in a syllabic pattern of two, eight, six, four, two.

Glowing eyes watch with red anger
Claws, Sharp, Ready, graze the bark
screams pierce the air
