Today at the dVerse Poet’s Pub, De has given us the deceptively simple poetry form: Sevenling – two tercets and one line at the end – a refined list poem with the last line to bring resolution to the poem. Another short form! Easy to read but more than the sum of its parts. Come join us for exceptional poems from exceptional poets. http://dversepoets.com/2016/04/07/dverse-meeting-the-bar-the-sevenling-form/
He survived after being thrown away by his person’s heirs
roaming the neighborhood living off stale popcorn and bread thrown out for the birds.
Feral dogs, snow, thirst he fought to live.
I saw him and brought him in and he loved me instantly.
unconditionally through my days of darkness
he guarded me and forgave me.
Who would have thought so great a heart would ever stop beating.
