Diamante 2

Diamante poems are such fun here’s another one that I wrote after my recent visit to Jackson’s Coppice to see the bluebells. (See previous post)

Trees,
ancient, sturdy,
breathing, living, being,
branches, limbs, leaves, flowers,
growing, spreading, blooming,
delicate, fragrant,
bluebells.

    Lovely. I’m not good with parts of speech. But I did copy the directions.
    Thanks.

      So pleased to hear you had a go. They are fun once you work out the parts of speech! It’s surprising how many writers do have trouble with them. I guess it’s because we get on with the writing and it is second nature – we don’t stop to think about how we use words, we just use them. 🙂

        I’ve copied the instructions… haven’t had a go yet… maybe soon – thanks. There is another diamond shaped poem:
        ““The Diatelle is a fun, syllable counting form like the etheree with a twist. The syllable structure of the diatelle is as follows: 1/2/3/4/6/8/10/12/10/8/6/4/3/2/1, but unlike an etheree, has a set rhyme pattern of abbcbccaccbcbba. This poetry form may be written on any subject matter and looks best center aligned in a diamond shape.””
