On Patience – (Tanka Tuesday #273)


Facts support you.

Temper the need to act,

Before you gather evidence,


Folk wisdom that stymies the truth.

Such, it is salient,

To acquire


(Butterfly Cinquain)

Poem prompted by Colleen’s Tanka Tuesday Challenge #273. This week, the challenge is to create a Butterfly Cinquain with thanks to Sally Cronin for the suggestion. If you, too, would like to join in, please follow the link for the rules.
