2 pieces of poetry today.
The 1st is my first ever experiment with diamante form.of which I knew nothing until October 2nd 2016
the 2nd is free flowing, stream of consciousness which is how they usually emerge.
The plan is to learn something about the form of poetry this month as well as playing with words flowing..
Here's the theory.
Line 1: Noun or subject
Line 2: Two Adjectives describing the first noun/subject
Line 3: Three -ing words describing the first noun/subject
Line 4: Four words: two about the first noun/subject, two about the antonym/synonym
Line 5: Three -ing words about the antonym/synonym
Line 6: Two adjectives describing the antonym/synonym
Line 7: Antonym/synonym for the subject.
Here's my sparkling diamante.
Fiery,, intense, awake, golden,
and here is my stream of consciousness.
Light drops delicately on the slow moving stream.
Sprites alight lightly on the holding meniscus.
Who sees their footprints?
Who hears their laughter?
You think its just sparkling on the water.
