As these transformations unfold before my eyes, I am reminded of the need for contrast. Without the dull greys of winter, I may not notice and appreciate the glorious colors of spring. Without the overbearing heat and humidity of summer, I might not enjoy the cooling breezes and fiery colors of autumn. Contrast brings balance.
I need noise to appreciate the silence.
I need crowds to appreciate being alone for awhile.
This week's prompt is a form challenge to encourage us to embrace this world of contrasts.
The Prompt: Select two contrasting words. They can be (but don't have to be) opposites. Use these two words to begin a Diamante poem, transforming from one to the other in just a few short lines.
Word Prompt(s): Transformation, contrast, balance
