Sevenling (she is) – 10 June 2019


Sevenling (she is)

she is
not weak or hysterical or
a temptress to be subjugated

she is
powerful, intuitive
a force to be reckoned with

if only she knew


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.
4. 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”.
5. the poem should be titled “Sevenling: (first few words of poem).
