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.

  1. NIGHT

    Moon and stars
    above,
    progressing all night;

    lightning bugs
    below,
    hesitating.
    All is right.

  4. Hold on to Your Dreams

    Soul expression
    Playful dolphins
    Leaping high

    Gracefully swimming
    Body waves
    Up, down
    Gliding by

  6. STARSHINE

    Sirius.
    Betelgeuse.
    Vega.
    Capella.

    Constellations enfold them;
    nothing
    holds them.

  7. WINTERSONG

    When chickadees
    come to seed
    they seem
    to plead:

    let there
    ever be
    glee.

  10. DON’T RUSH

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

    Paradise
    is hovering
    somewhere
    between the questions.
