Diamante

A Diamante is a seven line poem in the shape of a diamond with a word count of 1, 2, 3, 4, 3, 2, 1. The first and last lines are the opposite of one another and both are nouns, the second and sixth lines are adjectives, 2 describe 1 and 6 describes 7. Lines three and five are “ing” words, line 3 refers to line 1, line 5 refers to line 7. Line four contains two words about line one and two words about line seven.

glowing flowing knowing
peace fire hope mire
shocking locking blocking

Although it is not in the shape of a diamond here, wordpress will not let me center justify it…
