Sunday Scribblings: For Richer or Poorer

The prompt over at Sunday Scribblings is "For Richer or Poorer;" I started something that needs a lot of revision. Too much for one day.
And as I thought about it, this Cinquain came to mind:

is not wealth, things,
but the gathering of friends;
standing with those without a voice,
humble strength

I couldn't agree more. The gathering of friends and some good music or the music of nature which is good.

Dang, Thom, there’s frills at The Tension! I hope you don’t think they make up for the word shortage this Cinquain phase is costing us…well, me, anyway. I can appreciate these and the skill and brainwork involved, but I sure do miss the Grade-A, top choice descriptives of your flash fiction pieces ;-)

Well, I like the poetry! This cinquain capsulized a very improtant truth!
