A sevenling for RoSy

A sevenling for RoSy:
Flower Power

Is this what all of us that ‘blog’ do
in some manner of fashion –
share “me, myself and I”

some paint us pictures, share
photographs, bounce words playfully –
to our mock chagrin or true delight

but always just a bit of our true soul

note: The rules of the ‘sevenling’ are thus:
The first three lines should contain an element of three – three connected or
contrasting statements, or a list of three details, names or possibilities. This
can take up all of the three lines or be contained anywhere within them. Then,
lines four to six should similarly contain an element of three, connected directly
or indirectly or not at all. The seventh line should act as a narrative summary or
punchline or as an unusual juxtaposition. There are no set metrical rules, but
being such as short form, some rhythm, metre or rhyme is desirable. To give
the form a recognisable shape, it should be set out in two stanzas of three lines,
with a solitary seventh, last line. Titles are not required. A sevenling should be titled.
Sevenling followed by the first few words in parentheses The tone of the sevenling
should be mysterious, offbeat or disturbing, giving a feeling that only part of the story
is being told. The poem should have a certain ambience which invites guesswork
from the reader.

Eventually I’ll put these instructions on my Poetry form page…

a sevenling:
Crystal Clear

Life is like a box of chocolates – not original
however the formula of introspection, history
(more like her-story) and love of life most certainly is.

Walking in comfortable shoes, enjoying the company
of friends who become family, and making do with
whatever life throws your way – helps make the day

Be bewitched under full moons and by the robin’s song
