Writing Rictameter

Rictameter is a scheme similar to Cinquain. 
Starting your first line with a two syllable word, you then  consecutively
increase the number of syllables per line by two. i.e. 2, 4, 6, 8, 10 
Then down again,  8, 6, 4, 2 
Making the final line the same two syllable word you began with.   

As warm as hugs
As deep as a valley
As haunting as a lake loon’s cry
Opening eyes and freeing minds to dream
To make a nest for memories
To fill the heart with joy
To feed souls with
