Alone – Trifecta Cinquain

Trifecta challenge this week is to use the word door as follows
3: a means of access or participation : opportunity
I present to you a mirror cinquain of 33 words. A cinquain is a poem of 2-4-6-8-2 syllables, and for extra emphasis you can keep to a iambic meter.

Sun in an empty room by Edward Hopper

Sun in an empty room by Edward Hopper


remain
alone, I stand
the smell still lingers here
you left and to our future shut
the door
since then
the echo of your steps remain
in solitude I walk
my destiny
alone

  1. So, you once again open a door to a new style of poetry for me. I could not think of a finer painting to illustrate your words… I think Hopper heard you (you did know he could hear into the future, right)… Your piece could speak for many of his works I think, Björn.

  2. I love Ted’s remark that you’ve opened yet another door to a new style of writing. This is so beautifully written. Feeling that loneliness.

  3. Nice poem – feels like the other person really is there.
