I board my wooden barque yet again
For my quotidian trip
Down the Susqehanna.
In the distance I see the Pocono Mountains.
On the shoreline I see the man with the shaky hands.
He recoils in horror at the sight of three rocks.
The sky often gets so dark and cloudy.
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.
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).
I got this idea, to try to write a SEVENLING , from Kat Myrman.
