Sandhill Cranes at Malheur National Wildlife Refuge

This is a cinquain. It's not one of my favorite forms, but it's for one of Sol's contests.

Tall cranes
sway, elegant.
Boy-meets-girl, Audubon
style, in flooded meadows far from

Malheur National Wildlife Refuge

NB: If you google cinquain with appropriate additional terms like "poetry" "poetic form", you will find there's a great variety of forms that go by this name.

What beautiful sound they create. I was out enjoying the evening several nights ago and a flock passed over head, beaded with singular seranades.
