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.

Do this in the Septolet Form.   If you want , have a friend write it with you,  pass a piece of paper back and forth writing alternate lines…

Be creative, have fun, stick to it.  If I can do this, you can do this.

Keep writing

Poetry is Everything.
