April 11th, 2013 Poetry form = Diamante

Which natural resource do you worry about the most?
Diamante:  The purpose is to go from the subject at the top of the diamond to another totally different (and sometimes opposite) subject at the bottom. The structure is: 
line 1 - one noun (subject #1)
line 2 - two adjectives (describing subject #1)
line 3 - three participles (ending in -ing, telling about the subject #1)
line 4 - four nouns (first two related to the subject #1, second two related to subject #2)
line 5 - three participles (ending in -ing, telling about subject #2)
line 6 - two adjectives (describing subject #2)
line 7 - one noun (subject #2)

polluted, destroyed
cleaning, weeding, caring
river, lake, breeze, wind
swaying, flying, whirling
clear, ruthless
