“Sultry Summer Nights,” A Butterfly Cinquain

Life is likea cup of tea

This week for my Weekly Poetry Challenge, I decided to get creative. I used “hex” for the word, bewitch, and “jewel” for the word, treasure.

Love poetry can be the most fulfilling type of poetry to write. No matter how many syllables, love and passion always find expression. I like dabbling with illusionary words. Less is more. Let your imagination fill in the blanks.

Butterfly Cinquains have a magnificent rhythm due to their syllable structure: 2, 4, 6, 8, 2, 8, 6, 4, 2. I like the use of punctuation because I like the way it guides the poet’s voice.

“Sultry Summer Nights”

sultry,
summer night dreams
twisted sheets foretelling
a hex upon my soul’s desire.
I wait—
as the jewel’s fire heats the blood
exploding in pleasure,
my thoughts of you
sated.
