The Refrigerator Door: Haiku and Cinquain

OldDesignShop_OpenBookStoryPagesMy twelve-year-old nephew has been studying poetry in creative writing at school.  His mom, my eldest sister, shared the following haiku and cinquain poems with me.  I enjoyed them so much that I asked Josiah if I could share them here on my “Refrigerator Door.”


Haiku: a seventeen syllable poem divided into three lines of five, seven, and five syllables

Angels sing above
To the Lord on highest throne
His mercy rains down.

Cinquain: a five-line poem usually containing lines of two, four, six, eight and two syllables

A friend
Until the end
Spreads joy into a heart
That aches with troubles through and through
