Diamante Poems Made Easy
Bursting With Creativity
I learned about the Diamante form from Derdriu on Hubpages. I gave it a twirl. This one mighty little method to create a poem has potential. Seven lines of verse and you've got it made! Whooo! I'm on a roll and there is a place to guide you through as you develop your poem. It won't create a table on Hubpages for you, but the 'fill in the blanks' makes sure you're hitting the correct number of words, in the correct order, with the right part of speech.
Pick A Topic
Today's poem revolves around the common theme of 'depression.' A lot has been written, by many authors on Hubpages and elsewhere. Not only are we in a financial depression economically, we tend to trend emotionally with the marketplace. The material world out there does make an 'impression' on our inner feelings. When this occurs, we must take action to reframe our world, and find the tiny little blessings and miracles all around us.
The word depression has many meanings for each person and many triggers that set people into the decline. People can push buttons, and like happiness, depression is contagious. However, please take note: "happiness" is NOT the opposite of depression. My little poem will explain in verse. As a reminder, the first and last word of the diamante are opposites.

Kero One © 2009 From the album EARLY BELIEVERS.
Wikipedia | Kero One, a Korean-American hip hop MC out of San Francisco, California has gained fame through a series of events. Kero One produced his first single and art, when a copy purchased by a Japanese DJ created buzz and a Japanese record company requested 3000 copies, thus, began the rise to fame.
The same can happen to any of the Hubpages satirists, artists, poets, authors, painters, graphic designers, musicians, lyricists or instrumentalists, etc. All it takes is one person to recognize your work to set the chain of events into motion.
In 2005, Kero One released an album, "Windmills of the Soul," which was named the "Best Hip Hop Album of 2006" by Remix Magazine. In 2005, he opened the office for his own label, named Plug Label. In 2009, he released his second album, "Early Believers."
So, I recommend that everyone here, "Keep on Pushin" and who knows what can happen down the line. Many hubbers write serious fiction, non-fiction, family stories and series. Just Keep Pushing!
