How Can You Change Seem Into Heal? (SOLS)

As I was reading Debbie Diller's post, Poetry Friday: A doublet, I was inspired to try one of my own.  I was not familiar with doublets, and became intrigued by the one she created.  According to Debbie, "In a doublet, a word is changed, one letter at a time, into another word and arranged vertically into a poem." 

What may seem to take forever,

are the important things we seek,

the things desired by a meek heart.

Inspiration from the muses we meet,

are as vibrant as the color of a beet.

The thought makes my heart skip a beat.

I sense the heat of it

as my thoughts begin to heal.


  1. I haven't heard of a doublet before. Very intriguing. I like the color of the beet as a description.

  2. Nice doublet, Valerie! It inspires me to try one soon... a bit intimidating to think about!

    Thanks for sharing!

  3. I think you more than "tried" you did it well! I love the progression of the emotions!

  4. This is a fun form, will try it with my fifth graders this week. Thanks
