The white
eight-foot bride turns
dead presidents into
flowers. Her intense eyes unveil 
my soul.

Written for dVerse form for all prompt to write a cinquain. This gave me an opportunity to write about one of my favourite musicians, Amanda Palmer. She started out as a living statue, often as 'The eight-foot bride'. After listening to her recent inspiring TED talk (link here) about the 'art of asking' I wanted to get across the true connection she had with strangers. She still makes this connection by making her fans feel loved, appreciated and heard. I found it really difficult to put this concept into 22 syllables... There were many attempts. If you think it's easy have a go!
