Septolet?

The Septolet is a poem consisting of seven lines containing fourteen words with a break anywhere in between the two parts. Both parts deal with the same thought and create a picture.


Let’s write poetry together!

When it comes to partnership, some humans can make their lives alone – it’s possible. But creatively, it’s more like painting: you can’t just use the same colours in every painting. It’s just not an option. You can’t take the same photograph every time and live with art forms with no differences.

Ben Harper (b. 1969)

Would you like to create poetry with me and have a completed poem of yours featured here at the Skeptic’s Kaddish? I am very excited to have launched the ‘Poetry Partners’ initiative and am looking forward to meeting and creating with you… Check it out!

  1. I knew an American journalist was arrested in Russia but had to look up info on what America did. I found an article about the US exposing a Russian spy, and several other countries arresting or accusing people of being spies.

  2. I guess all countries gather intelligence and retaliate when one of their spies is discovered and denounced, whether or not their counteraccusations are justified. Thank you for writing about it, David. โค
