    Oh, I love the word choice here, Jackie. So powerful–from insufficient, cracked, scattered, and fragmented to whole–present, worthy, and enough. So beautiful. Thank you for sharing your convincing diamante poem.

  2. Oh wow, the shift to “enough” and “whole” here is so powerful! I’ve always found the diamante a difficult form; this one works so well!

      There’s something about a diamante that calls to me. Transformation is compelling. Hope you are holding up under the circumstances. All the best!
