silent creaks needing oil
midday sunset flames aglow
confident flaps to fluttering
now lifts, carried sideways

Today I would like you to try using different types of assonance and consonance in any poem of your choice. Try to listen to how it sounds, and see how you can enhance the connection between the letter you use and the meaning of the poem. Maybe you can add the beat of the poem with accentuated alliteration.
Todays poem is in the form of a butterfly cinquain. The butterfly Cinquain is nine lines with a 2-4-6-8-2-8-6-4-2 syllable count and when centered, creates a butterfly appearance.
