Shipwatch

Dawn is
a bated breath
while I stand by the sea
fog collecting in my lashes
like tears


This little cinquain brought to you by yeah write’s March poetry slam!

  8. I love how the structure of the cinquain is such that “Dawn is” breaks for a pause… just like the bated breath in your next line. I really like the rhythm of your writing and you inspire me to pay closer attention to rhythm and line breaks in my own work.
