A Mother's Diamante

beautiful soft
living wilting dying
sweet temporal eternal love
struggling erring doing
joyful hopeful thankful
a mother's day

Hello Friday's Child,
I will be waiting for your diamante.

Hi Mompoet,
You do have a way with words.

Hi Lazy Daisy,
I did have a wonderful day. Hope you did too.

Hi Aurora,
I learned of diamante poetry through my Son who is studying different poetry forms in school right now.

Hi Carol...

very emotive - you've successfully captured in 19 words what people have struggled to verbalize for generations! I love it!

Yellow roses are my favorite! What a great family picture.

Dear Carol,
This is great! Love the family picture! For a school project, I was to chose to either do a diamante poem or a haiku poem. I picked the haiku but, I am very familiar with these types of poems. Maybe I will give it a try! I hope you and your family had a great mother's day!

Sincerely, Artpuppy94

Dear Carol,
Well, I wrote it yesterday. It will probably be on my blog by this week. Thanks for the great post! Hope you have a great Victoria Day!
