Theme Thursday :: Swing

forward        back
flying    pumping    jumping
trying to reach the sky


A mere attempt at a cinquain poem. Hope you enjoyed. In many ways these verses describe my life right now as I try to get into the swing of things in my "new" old home. 


  1. keep swinging liza. i think it is only when the swing stops that reality hits us. life can seem to pull us in so many directions at times. hope things settle in soon,

  2. I like your cinquain very much, Liza--

    I admit to fearing change greatly, but if you swing into it smoothly as possible, with energy and power, like this, well, that's a very good thing, isn't it!

  3. That was fun. And "in the swing of things" is yet another interpretation of the theme. Love it.

  4. It is always nice to see the different types of poems around and your cinquain looks good to me. I will have to check into to see what it exactly means. But I put swing in front of every word and then thoughts went though my brain. It was fun. Thank you for sharing it with us.

    Hope you are getting all settled in. And hope that the time will fly by faster than you know.

    God bless.

  5. Very creative! I'm glad to 'meet' you on this Theme Thursday! Lovely family, btw. :)

  6. Lovely! Life Is A Constant Swing.It's Better To Be "on It" Than in Front of it??!!!

  7. I need to learn some different poetic forms so I can branch out on my rhyming wednesdays!

  12. i like it!

    i came across "cinquain" on another blog a little while ago, had forgotten... must investigate...

    thanks for your comment on my blog.
    hope you don't mind if I shamelessly promote my latest blog post which is shamelessly promoting a new crafty charity project - please read it and if you feel able help advertise (or contribute in any other way) that would be FAB

  13. Swing is also the name of a music style which I love very much so as I read your post I imagined myself on a swing going up and down whilst a big band blasted a big number behind me :-).

    Many thanks.

    Greetings from London.

  14. oh, you've moved already! :D

    Warm greets all the way from the Philippines. :D

  15. Fantastic poem. Now I have to go find out what a cinquain poem is. You know, I think that for the last few weeks there was something wrong with your link on Mr. Linky on TT site. I couldn't find any new posts. It just showed the post with your Easter eggs from April.

    I though it weird because I would see your name around the sites but nothing posted. Just wanted to let you know in case no one had mentioned it and you had many visitors. That, I don't want you to think I'm rude for not stopping round. Pleasnt to visit here, always. R


Thank you.
