  1. oh wow... you nailed it... and i like the way those words shape up a diamond. thanks for being around my space :)

  2. Very cool. I like your poems I have written a novel and several short stories but never a poem. I think it is because as a child the teachers drove into the whole rhyming thing and I didn't get past that. Although I imagine that by being a good poet you would have an excellent command of words which would make writing a novel easier. Good luck on your endeavors.

  3. Beautifully constructed and well-expressed...pretty clever too! Vb

  4. How fun to describe and make a diamond all at once.

  9. I have to admit to not being a poetry fan and yet I enjoy reading your pieces because of your word choice. They're like word paintings.
