Butterfly, Cinquain

The cinquain butterfly is not truly a cinquain because it does not have 5 lines. The butterfly form is similar to the mirror cinquain, except that one of the 2 syllable lines in the middle is dropped, creating a 9 line poem with the syllable pattern 2-4-6-8-2-8-6-4-2.

The link below is an example of a cinquain butterfly poem:
