Landscape Epanalepsis Poem
My first attempt at writing an Epanalepsis poem using a photo I took while I was at our farm last week.
Thanks to Mick and all his new forms of poetry, I did try, if you would like to,
Standing at the gateway, camera in my hand, holding
Waiting for my husband to return, to drive me back home
he returns walking along the track, I’m still waiting.
Sun is shining too bright, can only see the sun
camera in my hand, focus click, hand still on the camera
Cannot see hope that I have a photo even if I cannot see
Surprise when I downloaded the photo on my computer
I view a nice landscape photo of the farm what a surprise.
The color coding:
RED: The repeated words in epanalepsis don’t have to be identical, but must be in context.
BLUE: Epanalepsis can occur across two sentences.
GREEN: The same word used at the beginning, and end of a sentence.
MAUVE: Epanalepsis can occur within a clause of a sentence.
