March 28: Circus

Circus:  Three Cinquain Reflections

circus
elephants perform
beautiful women soar
strong men battle tigers
roar

. . .

circus
sparkly, noisy
exciting, laughing, enjoying
the greatest show on earth
spectacle

. . .

circus
animals trained
compliant and docile
the whip’s force creating control
illusion

On March 28, 1881, “The Greatest Show on Earth,” also known as the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus, was formed. Reflect on circus.
