Peace Clock

Jane Dougherty issued a butterfly cinquain poetry challenge a while ago. I’m a beat behind, Jane. Here’s my attempt, not quite accurate, since I added one syllable at the beginning and end. Oh well, still a nice shape.

This is in response to the man with the hair and all the hate-filled rhetoric.

One

Second

And one more now

Nudging the hands nearer

To midnight on the clock of doom.

Closer.

Remember how to count to ten?

One, two, three, and four–then

Deep breath in and

Out again.

Peace
