Seven lines of seven syllables: There are surely those who have written in this form deliberately, but I have not found a description of it. So, as of today (July 30, 2013), I coin the term wefting for a poem of seven lines of seven syllables each that are woven into an unseen narrative (the warp, if you will).

I'm sure someone will contact me to let me know if the form already has a name or is simply considered a modern variant of English Haiku. (Which it may be, but I think it deserves a name of its own.)

Thank you.
