Sevenling (success) – 9 June 2019

Sevenling (success)

for some, success
is black balance sheet,
recognition, awards and accolades

for others, success
is love and friendship,
family, life’s simple pleasures

work life balance is having it all


The elements of the Sevenling are:
1. a heptastich, a poem in 7 lines made up of 2 tercets followed by a single line. metered at the discretion of the poet.
2. unrhymed.
3. composed with 3 complimentary images in the first tercet and 3 parallel images in the second tercet. The end line is a juxtaposed summary of the 2 parallels, a sort of “punchline”.
4. the poem should be titled “Sevenling: (first few words of poem).
