Valsa George


Twin Cinquains - Anger/ Fear


ANGER
An acid
If bottled tight
Is sure to explode
Pernicious

FEAR
Hiding serpents
In unlit corners
Kissing with hungry lips
Poison

    VALSA, HERE IS MY LATEST MISCHIEF! i would complain about your use of pernicious (privately complain of course) BUT i guess i really am not entitled to complain since the definition says esp./especially, NOT always, in a gradual or subtle way. so i'll be lenient....this time! but watch your step! ! ! ! :) bri

    Anger plus fear equals self destruction. Try to eradicate both and
    you will survive its elements. A good explanation of both in your
    Twin Cinquains. (Report) Reply
