Call of the Ocean
A Crown Cinquain
It was blowing
She closed her eyes and felt
How nice it is to feel something
But the sea had many
Secrets and mysteries untold
She squinted hard
It seemed to her the waves
Were beckoning her to follow
Follow her heart
And jump into the sea
Or listen to the warning bells
In both her ears
Kept going deeper till she found
A Crown Cinquain is a sequence of five cinquain stanzas functioning to construct a larger poem. The syllabic count for each stanza is 2-4-6-8-2.
The last line of the previous cinquain stanza is repeated as the first line of the next cinquain stanza.
The final line of the last cinquain stanza does not have to equal the first line of the first cinquain stanza, but it is an option.

Now that is beautiful! You're digging deeper here Dharrsheena and coming up with material that feels more vulnerable but also more distilled and affecting. This poem is truly lovely, one of the better pieces I've seen at Vocal!
Very beautiful poem🍃
Creatively crafted poem with lots of visual that gives the feel of the sea.
Superb! I like the sequences of stanzas.
Very interesting and thought provoking. Work well done.
Very informative and enjoyable.
Love it. It captures the soothing yet beckoning nature of the ocean.
The careful construction of words is often overlooked. Yours flows very nicely.
You honored the form well! Enjoyable to read, as always!
Not being a poet, I'm always interested to read about the poem styles. I like the imagery in this one :)
superb!! It was beautiful!
Magnificent Poetry 💯✌️❤️I love the Construction 😉
I've never heard of a Crown Cinquain before but now I will just HAVE to try it! I love how the structure flows and even looks on the screen like a wave, and how the repetition of lines underscores the rhythm of waves breaking on a beach. Form and function merge.
Good work. Well thought out.
Good work. I like it.
Oh oh, my idol. It’s fantastic as always!
