Welcome to the Saturday Mix – Lucky Dip, 2 November 2019!

For this week’s Lucky Dip, I have reached into my mystery bag and pulled out a Diatelle. The topic is up to you!

You may be thinking to yourself, What on earth is a Diatelle?

Luckily, Shadow Poetry has an explanation…

Diatelle
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 poetry form may be written on any subject matter and looks best center aligned in a diamond shape.

The Diatelle form was created by Bradley Vrooman.
