Kansas Poet Laureate Wyatt Townley wants to bring poetry home to Kansans, and in that vein, is beginning a weekly poetry column that will be published in the Great Bend Tribune.
Home will be the theme and she will accept poems called the American Cinquain. A cinquain is five lines long.
The first line has two syllables, the second four, the third six, the fourth eight, and the last line drops back to two.
What is
the color of
moon yellow white or ice
blue well you have to close your eyes
and smell.
-Wyatt Townley
