A Somber Septolet

Night Song

by DonandVicki

Nocturnal
train's
somber sound

Lying in bed listening
and wishing
I could disappear
anywhere...


Septolet writing prompt entry
Writing Prompt
Write a septolet.
The Septolet is a poem consisting of seven lines containing fourteen words with a break in between the two parts. Both parts deal with the same thought and create a picture.


Example #1:
Untitled

Lion
moving swiftly
across the plain,
most intent.

Antelope
grazing contently
on his meal.

Example #2:
Lion Woman

Prowling,
Lion woman
Seducer of men.

Trembling heart
Naked, heat
Rising from skin,
Ecstasy!
