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

Example #1:

Untitled
 
Lion
moving swiftly
across the plain,
most intent.
 
Antelope
grazing contently
on his meal.

Example #2:

Lion Woman
 
Prowling,
Lion woman
Seducer of men.
 
Trembling heart
Naked, heat
Rising from skin,
Ecstasy!
