Liz Garton Scanlon - Look Around

Look Around 
By Liz Garton Scanlon 
bird song, breakfast, 
morning sun at a slant.

"Hi everyone… My offering is a poem and a prompt in one! 
First, familiarize yourself with cinquains. I talk about the form here , but there are also lots of descriptions, instructions and templates online."

(Then you can re-read the poem above, which, when sent to me here at Gottabook was still dripping with fresh ink (metaphorically)!)
"Finally, try your own observation cinquain. 
Let me know how it goes and, most importantly, stay safe and well."

Ahhh, a cinquain, you say, Liz Garton Scanlon? I shall observe as I go walking today and see what sparks me... or if thinking of a cinquain sparks me to observe....

but not alone.
We all shelter in place.
Apart but in this together.
Safe. Sound.
