Writer's notes: This poem is submitted to the Tautogam Challenge. JAZZY is written in a diamante poem format.
What is a Diamante poem? Is a style of poetry consisting of seven lines. The lines form a diamond shape. The first and seventh lines have one word. While in the Synonym Diamante poem, the first line word and seventh line word are the same or similar, in the Antonym Diamante poem the words first line word and the seventh line word are opposites.
Did you notice that lines one four, and seven are all nouns? In lines, two and six two adjectives are used with three verbs are used in lines three and five.
A special shout-out to Denise Lindquist for sharing and introducing me to the poetry style.
Thank you for reading! You are appreciated!

Oo a second layer to the tautogram! You brought it Babs! Way to go!
This is well written and the structure is so cool! Good job!
Jumpin' good time!
Like this challenge wasn’t hard enough, you have to go and raise the bar 😄
Simply delightful! Wonderful poem! 😍
Great job on your poem, Babs Iverson! Your use of language and structure in the diamante poem format is impressive. The word "Jazzy" perfectly captures the lively and energetic spirit of jazz music, and your use of descriptive words and verbs adds depth to the poem. Keep up the good work and keep exploring different poetry styles!
poetry & jazz...my two absolute favorites! Love it ❣️
Might play with that style myself soon, Babs
Well done Babs!
Purty neat Babs, I like it 😀
What a joy!! My son plays in a jazz band and loves it! I enjoyed the afterwards as well. Wonderful work!!
Thanks for sharing both this poem and the information on the format!
You had me with the title Jazzy. I'm a big fan of jumping jive, swing, jitterbug and all that jazz. You did a great job with this tautogram and diamante form. Outstanding. I am familiar with all the terms you used. I really loved this.
Jovial judges justifiably joyous. 🥰
Just Perfect 💯 ❤️✨
You are great at this 🥰
