Big Prize Friday- Coffee (UPDATED!)


UPDATE!

I have added a 2ND OPTION for you non poets. See below!

 

A tasty selection of the world's best coffees

 

 This is prize # 4. 

Ever try Kona /Arabic coffee, or coffee from Kenya, Sumatra, or Guatemala? Now is your chance. This delicious 1.87 lb coffee set can be yours, or be mailed to the coffee lover of your choice

To get this big ticket goodie will require some effort to win. But, listen! It is not hard.

You may write one, or post one and give the author full credit. This handy site even creates them for you, in a snap. How simple, and perfect. You can probably almost smell the coffee now!

What is a cinquain, you ask? Fourth grade was so long ago!

The modern cinquain is based on a word count of words of a certain type, in 5 lines.

This is the formula:

line 1 – one word (noun) a title or name of the subject
line 2 – two words (adjectives) describing the title
line 3 – three words (verbs) describing an action related to the title
line 4 – four words describing a feeling about the title, a complete sentence
line 5 – one word referring back to the title of the poem

OPTION 2

List 4 – 7 describing words (also known as adjectives) detailing WHY you like coffee. (Extra points for creativity)

Thursday Feb. 11 at 7pm, (EST) is the deadline. Each person may enter TWICE.

And-hey-Be kind, let your coffee-loving friends know about where they can get some coffee lovin’!

Best wishes.

      Doug, this is powerful, deep….
      and probably the most clever coffee-related cinquain I have ever read. It was about coffee, right?

      (I’m kidding of course, the cinquains may be about any subject)

  2. Yes, it was a cinquain of praise on shiggianoth to Jehova Java.
