Twin Cinquains - Snake/Fish Poem by Valsa George

Twin Cinquains - Snake/Fish

Rating: 5.0

Creepy, clammy
Uncoiling, twisting, slithering
Venom in fangs to snap

Finny, scaly
Streamlined to fare
In waters deep n' dreary

Your Cinquain on the snake is realistic. But you say about the fish living in the waters deep and dreary. It is not perhaps so.... I have read somewhere that fish lives a better life in spite of the threat to life from its bigger peers. They live an adventurous life that cannot be dreary like that of a snake.

I see Dinesh Nairs's point. I think deep waters are CALM. Depth may feel dreary to us but for fish it's their natural environment. Beautifully rendered poem.

I am now introduced to cinquains- I will try my cinquain after enjoying first and studying later, your cinquains. it looks as though you are telling 'meet Mr.Snake' 'meet Mr.Fish! '. Thanks for sharing.
