Same Old, same old…

The Diatelle is a fun, syllable counting form like the etheree with a twist. The syllable structure of the diatelle is as follows: 1/2/3/4/6/8/10/12/10/8/6/4/3/2/1, but unlike an ethere, has a set rhyme pattern of abbcbccaccbcbba.

This is a very challenging poem to write, unlike my friend Willow I didn’t cheat 😉😁. Just another poem on my ongoing battle with the up’s & mostly downs (but not in numbers) of my trying to be fit and healthy trek.

He has fallen
Anger, temper, bluster
his expression is depression
See so many stares of denigration
looked at, laughed at, back chat, feeling like an ass hat
His expression is elation
with a hopeful glimmer
he has risen
with honor

    1. I am not as terribly upset as this poem depicts,hence the he over I. Sometimes it’s just really hard to find the right words to fit the requirements. 😁
