I love this. I tiried writing cinquain last year. It was nice to have a structure/formula to work with as i am not used to writing poetry. Haiku sounds like fun too xJ

Hello WandaDon't you love the smell and the sounds of the wet woods Wanda...Today I could smell koala...it is a very distinctive strong smell... so once alerted you know to crane your head and check the tree tops and there he was. I am seeing the same one (I think) regularly - they keep to their favourite trees and sky paths...but he is too high to tell if it is the one I saw recently or #5, a new one....Happy days my friend
I saw a piece on Animal Planet about the loss of Koala habitat and thought of you and your part of the world. And thanks for the cinquain -- I haven't written any for a long time. Maybe it's time to give it a try.
i've never tried cinquain, i'm glad to be introduced to it now. i loved your post on the chathams Delwyn, thank for introducing that to us also. SO interesting.xo lori
If I hang around here long enough I will have to try it. I need to save all the info so that I can remember the different writing styles.
I smell it, I hear it.
Oh, I loved this. I love smelling, hearing, watching and tasting the rain!
I long to walk down that path, you've made the sound of the place come alive with your words. :)

What is more eloquent than poetry? Delwyn, I loved your Cinquain. Ms. Crapsey would be proud of your homage to koalas and she would be delighted to know her adaptation of syllabic verse had found its way so resonantly back across the Pacific to Australia.
i love this!
Hello Suziwelcome to my corner of the woods...so to speak...it is nice to meet youHappy days
These are wonderful. Thanks for sharing.Somehow, they always look unreal.
Just goes to show one can convey a massive amount of information with only a few words. This is a skill I don't have. Loved the poem and the photo. Thanks.
