This is a new form of poem that I recently found. It’s called a Diamante poem, due to the diamond shape that the words make. It’s really simple and minimalist, but I think it can be more powerful because of its simplicity.


Arduous, necessary

Weeping, hoping, stumbling

Journey, support, discovery, wonder

Searching, listening, reaching

Strong, open



Mysterious, painful

Suffering, feeling, seeing

Acceptance, promise, hope, peace

Resting, trusting, loving

Eternal, beautiful
