Septcouplet: form invented by Jerry Bolton.
Seven stanzas of free style verse, six lines each, no syllable count; punctuation within verse but not at ends, all in lowercase type.
After each verse: two four syllable lines which must rhyme.
T'ain't as easy as it looks. TRUST me. :)
Hope I did it right, Jerry!
lightning flickers nervously as
thunder mutters curses
under ozone drunk breath
there is tension in the sky
as the clouds
try to get out of the way
broken in two
its been a long time coming
of her unfaithfulness
building until it was
exposed in a flash
a shout of pain
and rage, insane
thunder shoves lightning from
her palace in the heavens
with a resounding crack
banishing her to the earth
below, to walk in shame
never to return
she can't go home
always to roam
rain trickles from her eyes
she knew it was wrong
to cheat, but what was she
supposed to do? thunder always
in a loud voice
she had no choice
he wanted her all to himself
he did not want to share
her beauty with
the world but she was a star
and stars are constantly
in the public eye
the way it is
when in show biz
they were a team
the most successful duo the
they fell in love and married
a perfect compliment to each other
now separated, heading for divorce
stuns the nation
she walks the earth, forlorn
wishing she could correct
her mistake but knowing
he won't forgive her
he's found another
she's a has-been
due to her sin
(c) 2006, Karla Dorman.

|Hey, StormSpinner!! Just how long HAVE I been away??!! And what does this change of identity mean, I ask myself?? This rates as the most wonderfully crafted allegory that could well endure as a classic, Ms Whirlwind. And the form suits it so very well. My congratulations to both the Storyteller and the Formdeviser. A winning combination! TY Kate xx|
