Poetry Friday: A Diamante Poem

Poetry Friday round-up is @ Jama”s Alphabet Soup


Our #PoetryFriday gathering this week is over at Jama’s Alphabet Soup where you’ll find delicious blueberry muffins & tea waiting, along with a plethora of wonderful poetry for your enjoyment. Won’t you join us today?

On a few of my morning walks with our two cockapoos this week, I have been greeted by the aftermath of a spring rain shower. The smell is simply glorious, and is another reminder that spring is here. There is nothing like the fragrant smell of spring rain. Even the rain itself seems different than rain at other times of the year. It has a gentler spirit and a different presence. It’s almost like it is telling us, “I am only here for a brief moment, and the sun will return shortly.”

I left school this evening and walked out into another rain shower. With all of my moments experiencing this pleasure of spring, I decided to try a diamante poem to celebrate what has brought me such quiet pleasure this week.

    Lovely poem, Dani. I agree, “There is nothing like the fragrant smell of spring rain.” And I love how it intensifies the fragrance of spring blossoms.

  2. Dani, I was also thinking of writing a poem about the spring rain but did not yet. You are right that the spring’s rain is so different. Tonight, I was writing and heard a crash that I could not believe but was too tired to go outside to witness the thunderstorm. Great use of vocabulary with petrichoral scnet.

  3. Lovely diamante! And this is the first time I’ve seen ‘petrichoral’ in a poem before. 🙂 I’m with you on the quiet pleasures of a gentle spring rain. I remember writing a poem about it in college.

  4. What a delightful way to share your joy in these spring rain showers. There is a difference in those gentle spring rains, but I’m not sure I’d thought about it until you mentioned it. Thanks and Happy spring!
