Septolet Form sep-toe-lay form rules
The Septolet is a poem consisting of seven lines containing fourteen words with a break in between the two parts. First part is 4 lines, second part is 3 lines. It’s okay if a line has 3 words in it, but that means another line will have 2. Both parts deal with the same thought and create a picture.
OR RIGID SEPTOLET
Line 1 is 1 word, Line 2 is 2 words, Line 3 is 3 words Line 4 is 2 words BREAK Line 5 is 3 words Line 6 is 2 words Line 7 is 1 word.
ADD A FORM CHALLENGE TO THE PROMPT.
What does that mean? Write your poem in a particular stylized form. Use an unusual one if possible like a Septolet or something better known like a sonnet.
