April 14
from Chris Jarmick:
“Write two different types of Septolets today. (Sep-toe-lay) 1- 14 words – 7 lines 2- 7 lines 16 syllables.

Septolet 1: Total of 14 words in 7 lines, no line should have more than three words. The poem should relate to one subject, object, thought or feeling. The first four lines create a coherent picture or thought, the last three lines create another. Each could stand separately, but both are related.

Septolet 2: Line 1 has one syllable, Line 2 has two, Line 3 has 3, Line 4 has 4 syllables, space, Line 5 has 3, Line 6 has 2, Line 7 has one syllable. Poem should relate to one thought, feeling, object, place.”

one clump
two then three
white petals
burst open

this tree
almost
missed spring

new
green leaves
envelop
this twiggy tree

underneath
it’s still
red

Happy Writing!
