Thank you for visiting my Writers at Home page.This week's new writing challenge is called:

DIAMONDS

If you are feeling creative, you could end up with a valuable collection of Diamonds

You see, words themselves are diamonds and you can put them together to create a beautiful poetic effect.

You start and finish with just one word - the subject of your diamond.

Here is an example:

SPRING

Warmer days

Newborn lambs leaping

Cheerful birds singing sweetly

Daffodils  dancing  in  the  breeze

Fresh  green   buds   burst  into  life

Farmers sowing their fresh crops

Smiling children making noise

Blue washed skies

Sudden showers

SPRING

As you can see, the lines grow: 1 word - 2 - 3 - 4 - 5- 6 and then shrink back down again to finish with your first word so that the whole poem is in the shape of a diamond.

Caution: You may have to be inventive with word spacing to get exactly the correct diamond effect!!

Could you choose a different season and give it a try? The choice is yours, Autumn, Winter or Summer.

What other subjects would make good diamonds?

Holidays

Football

Flowers

Christmas

Butterfies

Or how about...

It is best to work on a rough copy (first draft) of your diamond to begin with. Your final copy can then be either hand-written and illustrated or computer generated. Good luck with your 

Diamonds!

Once again, I would love to see your finished work. You could email it to me or send it via my Facebook page.
