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.


By Christopher J. Jarmick

Strange man observed

From shadows this odd fellow

Creeps, waits, stares too intensely

Smiles strangely.

What does he want?

What is he seeing?

Why does it bother me so?

What about me am I afraid he may see?

What arrogant, false confidence will be deflated this eve?

Why is he inside my head?

What does he want?

Is it me?  Is it me?


By Christopher J. Jarmick

Don’t try so hard

Don’t force it

Take deep breath.

Take another.


one more
