This Cinquain style poem was inspired by Stonehenge. I took this photo in 1983 when I went with a group for three weeks to London England and the surrounding area. Cinquain is a style of Poetry with five lines. Line 1 is the title. Line 2 has two words that describe the title. Line 3 has three words that tell the action. Line 4 has four words that express the feeling, and line 5 recalls the title.
Ring of stones
Provoking thoughts of mystery
Transmitting excitement this day
Did Stonehenge serve as an astronomical calendar for the solstice? Each day has in store new discoveries, new mysteries to explore, and more knowledge to gain. Be enthusiastic and this will be transmittable so that others develop the value of discovery, thought, and creativity.
