     Let's write! A Diamante poem consists of 7 lines in an exact format:

Line 1 -  1 noun
Line 2 -  2 adjectives
Line 3 -  3 verbs
Line 4 -  2 words describing the noun, two words that are opposite
Line 5 -  3 words describing the ending noun
Line 6 -  2 verbs describing the ending noun
Line 7 -  1 noun opposite the first one

   You can write about any person, place, thing, or idea you want. If you ever wanted to write a poem, but weren't sure how to get started, this would be a great place. So...what are you waiting for? Let's write!

it would hurt
to be the last woman standing
in this place that God
seems to have forgotten 
one day
I’m gonna open the door
and walk out
doesn’t matter
if the door closes back
or not

4.14.2 Palindrome

beauty of 
changing rhythms and distinctive beats
washing away worries
word and time
time and word
worries away washing
beats distinctive and rhythms changing
of beauty

Monday 4.4

I go wherever my ink leads
and write
for love
for peace
I write to bring light
into dark places
so others can see.

It's about my journey from Los Angeles to Brooklyn while finding a sense of place, with all of the adventures in between. It's available through my CreateSpace e-store, also on Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk. To find out more about the book and place an order, please visit my page at:

A rock that has no beauty
still serves a purpose.
It holds down the corner of my beach blanket
while I sit and think.
