Each End

Each End

Dark, cold
Snowing, swirling, blowing
Lights, family, friends, starlight
Baking, sweating, browning
Bright, warm

Ken Goree

I went back to my list of poetry forms, realizing that I had left some unattended for quite some time.  Tonight I thought I would throw in a diamante.  The diamante is a seven line poem, which usually transitions from one noun, to its synonym or antonym.  If choosing an antonym, the shift from the first noun to the antonym should occur in the mid-point of the fourth line.

This poem may have been better suited to the winter solstice, as the shortest day of the year.
