I noticed that the form of the month over at *poetic-forms was the Cinquain. They have it defined as having this form;

Line 1: Thunder, <---- 2 syllables
Line 2: Over my head, <---- 4 syllables
Line 3: A prelude to torrents <---- 6 syllables
Line 4: Of hissing rain lasting only <---- 8 syllables
Line 5: Moments. <---- 2 syllables

So I set a timer for 5 minutes, and started writing, I made 4 in between losing focus and pondering how much I love my wife, and veering off into the possibilities of a fractal poem that kept on generating new rhymes/forms/etc for infinity, but I remember having Shakespeare ruined by an English teacher who thought the sonnet was something to discussed for infinity and quickly went back to writing.

I present four pathetic attempts at this form, the first is the obligatory base love poem to the Gorgeous =sya limiting myself to the fun of her maiden initials of SL, the second me playing with adding form to a form, the third is just...well... I might be a geek, and the last is the Goth Inspired Death to us all Cinquain. If you are curious, I am going to consider Acronymic Food my official likehearted Poetic-Forms Contest entry :-)
