Crossroads

This week at IGWRT, we are presenting micro poetries on the topic "the cross-roads" in 10 lines or less. So, here is a small poetry form called cinquain from me..
Basically cinquain is a 5-line stanza which follows the following pattern:
1.    Title
2.    Two words to describe title
3.       Three words to express action
4.       Four words to express a feeling
5.       One word that restates  the title

Amidst all the emotions that one feel when it comes to decision making and choosing a path further, the bitter truth is that there is no one correct path! All ways however lead to a better future or prepare one for a better future :)


Crossroads
offer choice
pick a way
there’s no right path
steppingstone

    1. I have read about both, this being simpler, I thought will try this first and if works well, the syllable one can be considered

  4. Sometimes we learn the best of life from taking the most unexpected choice at the crossroad.
