NaPoWriMo 2.23: Mary, Mary

I’ve been at a poetry course tonight (with the marvellous Rommi Smith) and we’ve been talking about syllables. So we wrote a cinquain, a form which goes 2/4/6/8/2 syllables in each line, 22 in total…

Mine was written from a postcard illustrating a well known nursery rhyme:

Mary, Mary

It grows
From neon beds:
These luminescent suns
Rising in your contrary eyes
So dark.
