1 Poem by Neal Whitman

this cold evening
I took a walk in the park
my thoughts my own
hanging on a tree limb
a man's shirt, extra large

* The cinquain, inspired by the Japanese tanka, was invented by Adelaide Crapsey (1878-1914) and uses a syllable count of 2/4/6/8/2.


Neal Whitman writes to be read, and, to that effect, has published over 200 Western form poems and 500 Japanese haiku and tanka. In public recital with his wife, Elaine, Neal combines his poetry with her photography and her playing of the Native American flute.
