Below, I’ve generated a list of 100 random words. The idea is to read through the words, searching for a word that sparks your inspiration.

The Crapsey Cinquain is a five-line, non-rhyming poem featuring a syllable structure of 2-4-6-8-2. Choose words that create drama that builds into the fourth line.
