Septolet

A Septolet is a French form of fourteen words in seven lines set in two stanzas of four lines then three lines. Each stanza creates a picture, both pictures relate to each other to create another picture. So in the end you have created three distinct pictures, the first stanza, the second stanza, and the poem as a whole.

digging for artifacts
he thinks
of bones
and of fame

tangled
tendrils
of wildflowers
