Diamente Poem

Jo’s given me more fodder for thought in the form of poetic instruction. Here’s the result:


distant, close

fighting, growing, changing

Alpha, Omega, blinding, bright

infuriating, loving, endearing

warm, essential

The above is my first attempt at writing a Diamente poem:

Diamante poetry written in seven lines to form a diamond shape, [it follows] precise rules for the types of words that go on each line.

    Gleaming diamond. Bravo!

    By the way– who’s blog buddy Jo? Surely not Jenno?


  2. The facet in each line, creates the gem I see, with turn of phrase and set in sept, it lets my spirit free. Thank you for this gift of stone, brilliant on this page, it shows to all that see, the writer is a sage. 🙂

      Gee, John…thanks 🙂
      Thanks to Jo, I’ve been learning a lot about my style of poetry.
      I’m learning that paradox of being logical (à la Mr. Spock) and lyrical (à la emanita as poet)…is no longer paradoxical.

      I’m very moved by what you’ve written.
      Again, thank you for your poetic comments.
