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:

Magi
Gazing upward
Hopeful joyful searching
Following the eastern star
Wise 

Star
Heavenly bright
Leading pointing guiding
Resting quietly over Bethlehem
Shining 

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