Long story, but I thought I’d try to write about the source of sighs.
The form, sevenling, is a bit odd. Reading, you don’t notice much. Writing one requires two three-line stanzas and a one-line twist. An element of three in each of the three-line stanzas. Repetition is easiest, but there are all manner of parallels, synonyms, and opposites. Three things that somehow fit together.
The Source of Sighs
Is the reason the source? A sigh
of peace. Does it spring from the same hill as a sigh
of exasperation? What about a satisfied sigh?
Is there a Livingstone of sighing, who left home
and companions, left base and bearers behind,
left the broad reasoned valley? Is he lost
in his soul, or exhaling it.
