“Neo Diamante” (New Diamond) introduced by me is a derivative variant of the original “Diamante” (created in 1969 by Iris Tiedt). The variant too has 7 lines shaped like a Diamond and the subject at the top of the diamond is totally different or opposite to the subject at the bottom.

But unlike the original, neo diamante gives poetic freedom to use verbs/nouns and adjectives creatively to convey the theme. The first and last single words are preferably nouns and their contrast is brought out by the progression of the middle 5 lines. The Title should be the separated last word of the 4th line.The beauty is to convey the theme in the least words forming the diamond
