message 1: by C. J., Atm Seeker in the "Lin Kuei" (new)

C. J. Scurria (goodreadscomcj_scurria) | 4216 comments This game idea was suggested by Breslin on 10/6/17:

"A cinquain is a five line stanza where the syllable count is:
2
4
6
8
2

My God,
Holder of hearts
Bestow upon this man
The sense to live upright, fully
God-known."

Ryan | 5334 comments Brown eyes
Capture moonlight
And birth quicksilver dreams
That crash and break upon the shores
Of dawn

message 4: by M (new)

M | 11074 comments I knew
the room was green,
but what was I to do?
The door frame and the louvered screen
were blue.


message 5: by Ryan (new)

Ryan | 5334 comments Thanks, M. Nicely done.


message 6: by Ryan (new)

Ryan | 5334 comments M's door
So blue, until
It was viewed from afar—
By some trick of light, it became
A jar

M | 11074 comments A jar
by the window,
dimly incandescent,
was the last repository
of dusk.

message 10: by M (new)

M | 11074 comments She led
him up dim stairs
in The House of Blue Tiles,
to Duncan Phyfe chairs, to perfumes’
old vials.


message 11: by Jon (new)

Jon Bennett (jbennett830) | 7 comments Sees it
falling through grey:
white flake dancing down to
be held, melting before he can
seize it

Lee (lee-lette) | 1839 comments 'Seize what?'
was his only thought
'the falling or the falling's impact?'
confusion arised (arose?).


message 13: by Ryan (new)

Ryan | 5334 comments The day,
today! Never
let go - seize it, hold on -
your life depends on it. Carpe
Diem.
