This is my blog (now there is a surprise!). I will be sticking in it poetry, prose, random musings, things that take my fancy and more than likely lots of pictures of cats. I hope you find something to amuse and/or interest you here.

A sprinkling of septolets


The septolet has fourteen words. It is broken between two stanzas that make up the fourteen words. Each stanza can have seven words each but that is not a requirement. Both stanzas deal with the same thought and create a picture.  Thanks JL, for starting this.

Words slide
Through my mind
Like snakes

Nothing to grip
Happy thoughts
Slip away.

How Can 
My Heart Hurt
So badly

Body denies
The torment
In my mind.

That moment
When beauty
Is almost painful

Breath catches
Lest exhaling
Lets joy escape.


  1. So deep Penny, I feel it!

  2. Thanks. I didn't feel I had quite got a grip on this form.

  3. You are doing great justice to the form Penny !!
