Fandango’s One Word Challenge today (oops yesterday) is leave and the Word Challenge of the day is dismal.  I should have just skipped the challenges, but it’s done now.  I decided to do something short and sweet, well not that sweet as leave and dismal are kind of like the day outside was, grey and chilling.  The form is a Diamante.

A Diamante is a seven-lined contrast poem set up in a diamond shape. The first line begins with a noun/subject, and second line contains two adjectives that describe the beginning noun. The third line contains three words ending in -ing relating to the noun/subject. The fourth line contains two words that describe the noun/subject and two that describe the closing synonym/antonym. If using an antonym for the ending, this is where the shift should occur. In the fifth line are three more -ing words describing the ending antonym/synonym, and the sixth are two more adjectives describing the ending antonym/synonym. The last line ends with the first noun’s antonym or synonym.

      1. Just do it. No time like the present. I like it because of the shape, that it isn’t difficult to follow the directions, and because there is a choice to have it be a synonym or an antonym.
