Epiphany Cinquain Poems

Challenge the congregation to create a five line epiphany poem based on the Cinquain method. 

See this website: http://hrsbstaff.ednet.ns.ca/davidc/6c_files/Poem%20pics/cinquaindescrip.htm

There are different patterns to choose from.  Here is one:

Line one has only one title word (Noun).
Line two has two words describing the title (Adjectives).
Line three has three action words (or a three-word phrase) that tell you something that the title can do (Verbs).
Line four has four words (or a four-word phrase) describing your title.
Line five is one word that refers back to your title (Synonym).

So two examples for Epiphany might be:

Gazing upward
Hopeful joyful searching
Following the eastern star

Heavenly bright
Leading pointing guiding
Resting quietly over Bethlehem

For another way of using these words go to http://www.wordle.net and have fun with a word cloud.
