Aroma of fried garlic 

Dash of ginger too
Marinated chicken breast
Crisp and oven baked
Grumbling stomach waits
Dipped in sauce

Poetry Form – Epulaeryu

I wrote this for Poetry Jam where the prompt is to write about a culinary delight. 

Epulaeryu is a poem about food, where the syllable count is 7/5/7/5/5/3/1. You can write this poem with or without any rhyme scheme. The last line has 1 syllable and ends with an exclamation mark depicting the excitement of the writer. Each line in Epulaeryu is about the food – the main course. The Epulaeryu poem was developed by Joseph Spence, Sr.

Linking to Prose for Thought as well

Hope you enjoyed reading the poem 🙂

  1. I have not heard of this form before–or maybe I have forgotten. Thanks for the yummy introduction. Garlic, ginger and crispy sound good to me!

  2. Hi Mary, apologize for that. I usually take the weekend off from blogging due to which I am usually late in commenting back… Thanks for writing in.

  3. Hi….. you posted your link at Poetry Jam, and SIX of us from Poetry Jam have commented on your poem. I do hope you will find time to make comments on our poems as well, as we ALL enjoy comments as much as you do. Thank you.
