tanks out of deep storage.
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!

Oh, the suffering one man’s ego can cause! Surreal! Knowing that the world is mocking him motivates him to continue the carnage, whatever the cost! Your poem is spot-on, David! ❤

It’s hard to believe it’s really happening – good poem David and form suits it so well 💕
💔🙏🏻 Ange 🙏🏻💔 ~ it’s just insane
it is all a horrible thing
so utterly senseless – such a high cost all around – and for what!?
I’m sure the Ukrainians are ready for the war to end and the Russians are just as tired. If only Putin would reel in his ego….

Calling on the old-fogies

Delusional is putting it mildly
I’m sad for everyone 😞
All the same
Wishing you a beautiful Friday.
We are in loadshedding now.
And we have long awkward hours awaiting us later between 16.00hrs and 20.00hrs
Besides it is bitterly cold in this city compared to let’s say the capital city.
Blessings all the same.
😢 Abi 😢
