Sequestered Dreams (A Garland Cinquain)

Sequestered Dreams (A Garland Cinquain)

Colleen’s weekly challenge photo prompt:

Ashore
Dreams lost at sea
Woven within secrets
Bound by duty, threaded in fear
Marooned

Yonder
Beyond spiked rocks
Across the everglades
Hope’s meadow blooms resplendent
Waiting

Unseen
Drenched beneath waves
A pebbled myriad –
paves the way to lush frondescence
Disguised

High tide
Seeking to drown
But spraying pearls instead
Adorns the path to happiness
To peace

My dreams
Lie discarded
And yet they call to me
From shores of possibility
Unfound

Ashore
Beyond spiked rocks
A pebbled myriad –
adorns the path to happiness
Unfound


It’s never too late to follow your dreams


For Colleen’s photo prompt this week, I wrote a garland Cinquain.
This is a combination of six cinquains
Each stands alone,
But together they form one whole.

Its deeper beauty comes in the final 6th cinquain, that is;
Line1 from line1 of the 1st cinquain.
Line2 from line2 of the 2nd cinquain… and so on…
Until line5 from line5 of the 5th cinquain.

I hope you enjoy this as much as I enjoyed crafting it.

Stay safe, and keep chasing those dreams.

  1. The sea and the dreams🧡🧡 I think I now have another vision of how my dreams look like now. I love this. Great read as always.

  2. I have always enjoyed water… Lucky to live by a creek.
    I do have a dream of living by an ocean ~ to step out (maybe not so close for flooding or bad weather…) but to be able to walk a beach at any time. Vacations will have to do for now… at least the dream of vacations anyway 😉

    Colleen had another challenging form… a Kindku. ‘All forgiven in a day… July 20, 2020.

      • Like found poetry… not really a form, well the later parts that I enjoy. The syllable count is interesting and the idea. But I don’t like hunting for pre-existing words in book titles, other poems or even the newspaper. But then I am rarely at a loss to write about something, as pretty much everything inspires me. Another foil for me is sonnets and forced rhymes.

        Just because the mountain is there doesn’t mean we have to climb it 😉 Sometimes a nice walk around it is good to 😀

  3. Jude, this is amazing! I love the connections you made with each stanza. I loved this stanza:

    High tide
    Seeking to drown
    But spraying pearls instead
    Adorns the path to happiness
    To peace

    I’ve got to add this one to my book. It is pure brilliance! ❤
