of a feeling

casts by shadows of fear

 awhile, light is the saviour

of hope...


**Inspired by ~*Princesa Fiona*~ at The Princess Passions.**


  1. So beautiful. Sad but this is part of life.
    Thanks for sharing!

  2. Thank you, Ana. Life is a mystery. :)

  3. This is so true Balqis,. Thanks for sharing! So Wonderful!:)

  4. Ahh! You did a *wonderful* job with this Cinquain, Balqis!!! It's beautiful and very profound ~ love it! The image is perfect too! I can see you penning more of these because of your expertise in haiku! Thanks for taking this challenge ~ you always pass with flying colours, as far as I'm concerned! *Big smiles*

  5. @Sagittarian - Thanks a lot. Have a wonderful day! :)

  6. @~*Princesa Fiona*~

    Your kindness means a lot to me. Thank you so much for everything and most importantly for introducing other forms of poetry writing. It's really great learning from a well-versed person like you, Fiona. :)

  7. weeeeee..I love it Balqis..covered darkness but a light will always shine..a symbol of hope for brighter days to come..passing by ;)

  8. Nice. I like it because it grabbed me from one emotion to another,from darkness to lght.

  9. hi balqis..the shadows of fear is only a small fraction of the night... beautiful eclipse.

  12. I have been come on this page after seeing Princess Fiona saying so many beautiful words about you on her blog...

    Ah..I must say..she is quite right! :D

    Though, I have not written anything remotely resembling a Cinquain, I am enjoying this form of expression from so many writers..

    Let the hope of light always shine.. :-)
