The septolet (the form I do, there are at least two) requires 14 words in 7 lines broken to two stanzas. Each stanza should stand alone and evoke an image. There should be an image brought about in the readers mind by the combined stanzas.




Vines
Ripen on the
Napa slope

Sharp
Tillamook cheddar
Compliments the vintage
Cabernet sauvignon

The river
Parted by rocks
Forms rapids

Patterns
Raked
In the sand
Mimic water

Deep sorrow
Carves a
Lonely
Hollow spot

Headstone
Alone
In a field of headstones

The young couple
Rhythmically
Reclines
In loves dance

Rhythmic contractions
Bring
The new cry

Solitary
Writer works
In a
Crowded cafe

She reads
Surrounded by those
She ignores

Politicians
Pander for
Every vote
They can get

Homeless people
Don't worry about
Gasoline

I like your Septolet collection, Bryan. A good discipline to work
on, and one which you seem to have mastered. Thanks. - Gene.
