  1. I had never heard of a diamanté poem either – I love this. It’s beautiful to read and look at.

      Since no one had heard of this form, I did a little research. It was invented in 1969 (a year after I graduated from high school) so that explains why the more mature bloggers may not have heard of this form. Also I learned that mine is not in correct form… it should actually have 7 lines! ooops. There seems to be some misinformation floating around about the poem style also. One source says it can be a synonym style or antonymn style. Another source calls the antonymn style a cinquain….
      I believe this source is accurate.

    • You should absolutely try one because it will be amazing like all of your poetry!
      I learned about a lot of different types of poems VERY late in life from a colleague when I was co-teaching high school English to assist my special needs students in the classroom. i don’t know if they are “new” or not, but I know when I was in high school (when dinosaurs roamed the earth) I did not learn about them.

    Love this, Ruth. I love the connection between the diamond pendant and the diamante. I also love how “love,” “truce,” and “surrendering” are at the heart of the diamond. {{{Hugs}}} Kozo
