Dog

loving, loyal

running, jumping, playing

Barking growling, biting hissing

Sleeping, purring, meowing

Cuddly, soft

cat

  1. Lovely Chris, I had to add ” ing ” in the middle line to make it a diamond, is that ok πŸ™‚

    • Its ok regarding shape, but the 4th line is supposed to consist of all nouns and adding “ing” makes them verbs! What about taking it back to the original and leaving a couple of spaces between words and see if the shape is ok then. Ive seen that done in some examples πŸ™‚

  2. Great, Christine! I feel like I almost know Jack–and last night I was dreaming that I almost got the most lovely dog, but the owner decided to keep him, as I really couldn’t afford to. Hs and Ss

  3. Harry,

    When I did the challenge I couldnt find your original details with the format for the diamante poem so I googled it and got the following, so there must be two ways of doing it!!

    The Diamond Poem:
    Line1: one noun
    Line2: two adjectives that describe the noun in line 1
    Line3: three –ing verbs the writer associates with the nouns in line 1
    Line4: four nouns – the first two nouns are associated with the noun in line 1; the other two are associated with the noun in line 7
    Line5: three –ing verbs the writer associates with the nouns in line 7
    Line6: two adjectives that describe the noun in line 7
    Line7: one noun that is the opposite of the noun in line 1

    I will have another go your way πŸ™‚

    This challenge has driven me crazy! :). πŸ™‚

  4. I so admire your perseverance! I love this poem, whatever the form says!!! Great choice of subject. Blessings, H xxx
