stanzaic, written in no more than 3 cinquains.
rhymed. The form employs a climbing rhyme in which the 4th syllable of L1 rhymes with the 3rd syllable of L2 and the 2nd syllable of L3. L4 and L5 end rhyme.
dedicated to the seasons and the emotions they evoke.

Unseasonal

They hope to reap
Trust to heap gain
Just keep toiling
work hard, watch, wait
To harvest profit


But lo their fate
Brings them waste lot
To hate sudden
Havoc of storm
Untimely to harm
