Dear Godfrey Logan,

Here are some poems in American Cinquain form for your conisderation.

Best,
Michael Ceraolo

Cleveland Cinquains #45-50

Street scene-
perpetual
garage sale overflows
the garage into the driveway
and yard




Hours of
medical news-
the TV while waiting
to be seen at the medical
clinic



Gas well
in a backyard-
share problems with neighbors
while keeping the benefits for
oneself


Lighthouse
painted on an
apartment- not high or
real enough to warn away
the planes


Lake scene-
wind-blown waves crash
too strongly to allow
skimming any stone from the shore
outward


Concrete
blocks are in place
to save the beach- water
just goes over, around, through them
to shore

-Michael Ceraolo
Thank you for your consideration.
