Transition | A dVerse Prompt

Todays prompt on dVerse is about flipping poetry meanings. I thought flipping a poem would be fun but decided to go for a diamante poem below. And I enjoyed it so much I wrote two. Below my attempts I’ve added how to write one which I took from dVerse’s post.

Calm, serene
Soothing, relaxing, restoring
Drowsy, chill, bright, fresh,
Living, arousing, breathing,
vibrant, rich,

Bold, sister,
Waxing, waning, spiriting,
Caring, warm, bright, pure
Scorching, guiding, living,
Radiant, mother,

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

  1. I enjoyed your diamantes very much, Emine. I like the two opposites you chose for each as sleeping and waking are often a gradual process as is night to day, where that middle transition is the fuzzy place.

  2. I enjoy two for one responses, Emine, and the diamante is a great form to play around with. Yours work well together – and they can stand alone. I agree with Lisa’s comment about sleeping and waking being gradual processes with a fuzzy place in the middle.
