Smorgasbord Poetry – #CrownCinquain – Life’s Progression by Sally Cronin – Colleen’s Weekly Tanka Challenge

This week it is poet’s choice for Colleen Chesebro’s #Tanka Tuesday Challenge 228

I have crafted a Crown Cinquain which I hope you will enjoy..

Life’s Progression

First breath
in the new world
air filling tiny lungs
instinctive cry for attention
bonding.

Small hands
find surfaces
to steady the progress
of the exploration of life
moving.

Hormones
surge and confuse
caught up in the vortex
between childhood and adulthood
yearning.

First glance
a connection
love settles in the heart
bringing new life into the world
caring

Wrinkles
mark passing time
how fast the years have flown
the mind flooded with memories
smiling.

  1. Gorgeous crown cinquain, Sally! Your poem made me think, it’s so beautiful and touching, but there’s so much truth in your words as well. The stages of life that you described in the first three stanzas seem to move at a snail’s pace, but the stages of life you described in the last two stanzas seem to fly by so quickly. Why is that? ❤ xo
