Grooming and brushing the hair are a good contrast to the fragility of a flake which has come to the end of its journey. Thanks for sharing and a happy new year!

Best wishes
Ralf

Happy New Year, Ralf. Thanks for sharing that great insight about the end of those flakes' journey, the fragility of their existence. Your thoughtful comments are much appreciated.

Best regards.

Yousei Hime -- Thanks for dropping by. I will certainly visit your blog.

Happy New Year!

Carlos,
Thank you for returning the visit. I enjoyed my visit to your blog. I will certainly be back.

This form of cinquain is attributed to the poet Adelaide Crapsey, with five unrhymed lines of, respectively, two, four, six, eight, and two syllables. You are right, it was inspired by the tanka. Quintain, quintet, and pentastich, all having five lines, are also called cinquain.

Sincerely,
Yousei Hime

Thanks for dropping by.
