Just did Cinquains

Today was very interesting. My mom thought we were going to do a lot
of composition, but instead, we got to do cinquains. If you are
wondering what a cinquain is, it's an oriental verse of five lines.
There are two kinds, word-count and syllable-count. Here's the ones I
came up with today.

Water
Splashing loudly
Moving up and down waves
Like a blue blanket on Earth
Ocean


Star shine
Shining so bright
Like a moon on fire
Dancing, prancing around the Earth
On fire


Shadows
Black, bright
Jumping, hopping, skipping
Following your every move
Mirror

Hope everyone at home is doing great. I don't usually write blogs. I
will try and get better.
