On the eve of my birthday it’s all about me…and chocolate cake

Here is a sweet little video C made for me for my birthday.
Been wrestling with Margo’s prompt to write a diamante poem for several days now. Man, these are hard to be satisfied with. Since it’s my day, I thought I’d write all about me!!! Ok, a little about me.
Have decided I don’t really like the structure so this may well be the only diamante poem I ever write. Having some chocolate cake now. 🙂
all for the chocolate cake! 🙂 and the diamonte is one i used to teach to my students. i think they taught me how to do it better. but perhaps you struggled because it was about you. but either way, it was well executed. 🙂
Did you Bolton? I’d love to know more about the diamante. I found it way more rigid and unforgiving than anything I’ve tried before, even a haiku. But thank you very much for liking it. 🙂
That’s a clever pick, Veronica. I never thought of the opposites of oneself. I’ll have to add that to the possibilities!
Oh Margo, I’d love to see that! Wouldn’t that be a great idea? We should write more about ourselves to get to know each other better. Maybe an all about me 3rd Friday of each month!
almost went through the screen seeing the cake; at first i thought those were ham slices on top of that rich wavy chocolate; nice post; happy birthday
Esther, too funny. I suppose they do look like ham, but they were the loveliest, cruchiest, chocolatiest, chocolate curls. Mmmm!

Veronica, the cake looks delicious and the poem is very well done. I hope you had a wonderful birthday.
Thank you Jo Ann, I did have a wonderful birthday. I hope you did too! 🙂
