INFORM POETS – SEPTOLET

Back in the seventies, Monti Rock III had assembled a group he called “Disco-Tex and the Sexolettes”. They were gaudy, pretentious, indeed everything you abhorred about the disco era.

Well, this week we’re doing Monti one better. The form featured today is the Septolet.

The Septolet is a poem consisting of seven lines containing fourteen words with a break in between the two parts. Both parts deal with the same thought and create an image.

WALT’S FOURTEEN-SEVEN:

MORNING

Sunrise.
Slowly ascending.
Pretending to hide,
rays are revealing.

Warming,
disarming, charming
new day.

    NIGHT

    Moon and stars
    above,
    progressing all night;

    lightning bugs
    below,
    hesitating.
    All is right.

  2. Lawn Ornament

    Dandelion
    yellow head
    tasty greens
    when young

    In old age
    white head
    speeds wishes.

  3. (Poem w/image: http://lettheballoonssailmeaway.wordpress.com)

    Always to Stay

    Flowing
    Thru you
    Meandering into
    Thoughts of you…

    Let us never forget
    to
    Remember.

  5. A BOUQUET OF CHIHULY

    With grace
    and beauty,
    flowers emerge
    from molten glass.

    Delicate blossoms
    formed,
    each unique.

  6. EMPTY THREATS

    Midnight
    Phone call:
    Outraged
    Caller threatens me.

    Who? Burton?
    You have
    The wrong number.

  7. CHOCOLATE

    silky
    smooth texture
    rich and decadent
    melting on contact

    aromatic
    guilt inducing
    sweet sensation

    AUTUMN

    Summer
    Heat retreats
    Tree limbs dance
    Splashes of color

    Fallen
    Lifeblood given
    Earthen blanket

    Hold on to Your Dreams

    Soul expression
    Playful dolphins
    Leaping high

    Gracefully swimming
    Body waves
    Up, down
    Gliding by

  12. What Were We Thinking…

    Sunlight slants
    September squints
    Summer’s warmth
    dissipates, betrays

    burning love
    Fumble-fingered familiarity
    buttons sweaters

  14. UNDER COVER

    When I sink
    to new lows
    I see

    nature’s beauty
    from a
    new
    perspective.

  15. In Love

    Mesmerized
    by his looks,
    he gazes
    at himself.

    Falls
    in love with
    water’s image.

    STARSHINE

    Sirius.
    Betelgeuse.
    Vega.
    Capella.

    Constellations enfold them;
    nothing
    holds them.

    WINTERSONG

    When chickadees
    come to seed
    they seem
    to plead:

    let there
    ever be
    glee.

  19. DAYBREAK

    Sun’s warm rays
    break
    distant horizon

    contrasting
    light dances
    amid the night’s
    lingering shadows.

  21. Caught My Eye

    Autumn’s ardor
    captured wind
    tenderness stirred.

    Morning’s sunfire
    makes art,
    illuminates
    brazen grass.

    FALL

    Leaves
    that lived
    on my maple tree
    are letting go,

    but
    I
    hold on.

  23. Nurit Israeli on said:

    FALL

    Hurry.
    Dance yourself
    to the beauty
    of fall.

    Capture
    every speck
    of your time.

  24. Nurit Israeli on said:

    DON’T RUSH

    Don’t rush
    to find out
    what’s next.

    Paradise
    is hovering
    somewhere
    between the questions.

  25. Nurit Israeli on said:

    MEMORIES

    Still
    running
    backward fast
    looking for you.

    All
    that was then
    is alive now.

  26. So many delightful septolet (I am guessing at the plural). Late viewing and little time to comment but beautiful treasures in tiny jewels.
