My first diatelle
I want to Nay, need to Must- simply must Express love deep for you Aroused by the depths of our trust ‘Tween ashes and ashes; ‘tween dust and dust Souls float together above the ground and the sky We spiraling-twirling through gale and gust Flowing on respect true and lust One another - pursue Together - thrust As birds do We two Fly
I love trying out new forms of poetry, and I just discovered the diatelle form via Linda’s lovely poem ‘Rain’, which you absolutely should read for its vivid imagery and flow. I am so appreciative of d’Verse for introducing me to so many fantastic and supportive poets.

I just read another comment that says that on the front-end of your blog (not reader view) it looks like a diamond – but I have to say I loved it exactly as it shows in reader – left aligned – it was like a bird’s wing, or flight formation, sailing outward from the heart… I adored this poem!!
(adorable image, too, can just feel their love 🤗)
A beautiful Diatelle!! ♦️♦️♦️ Loved it🌺💕🤗
I felt I had to try – I just loved the concept!
Lovely poem. 💖 You are also talented with technology – maintaining the poem’s structure in WP, best viewed directly on your site, vs. Reader. You should do a post on how to do that. 😉
I enjoy creating poems that follow a structure. For me, it is usually the poem that dictates a certain structure, leaving me surprised by what shows up. I have included several structured poems in my collections, but not on my blog. Nice work, David. 😀
Michele – TBH, there was nothing to it at all. I simply centered the poem, and it looked like a diamond! I didn’t do anything fancy with it the slightest!
Thank you so much ❤
Cool! I wish Reader would maintain our efforts. When I looked at your poem in Reader, it is flushed left, but on your website, I can see your centered version. You should still do a post – you have other technical and blog presentation skills. 👏
Yeah I wish so too – it’s quite to me annoying actually.
Thanks for the idea ❤
A deep and emotional expression of all the aspects of love. So many dimensions swirling around the core. Solid and yet always new. (K)
Your comment (and this isn’t first time) reads like poetry to me, Kerfe.
Poetry inspires poetry.
you used the format well to vividly describe true love!
Thanks so much, Kate – you are very sweet.
