DMC: "Lake Champlain Summer Storm" by Janet Fagal

Lake Champlain Summer Storm

The rain

Crashes and whips.
Our boat rolls side to side.
We watch as dad wrestles the waves...
saves us.

Laura Purdie Salas has challenged us to come up with a water-themed cinquain this month.  Click HERE for details.  If you would like to join in the fun, use the contact form in the sidebar to the right to send me your splashtastic poem!


  1. I feel like I'm right there at the lake, Janet. Such excitement and heroism in five lines!

  2. It could be a father's day poem, Janet! Scary experience!

  3. Well done, Janet--and Dad! I agree with Linda B.--a good Father's Day poem.

  4. This is an experience I'd rather have in a poem than in real life. Happy Dad saves.

  5. Yay, Dad! You packed striking imagery into a small space, Janet.

  6. Having lived near Lake Champlain, I know how you must have been feeling with those waves rocking you back and forth! Glad you lived to write the tale!
