Yummm!!



Aroma of fried garlic 
Dash of ginger too
Marinated chicken breast
Crisp and oven baked
Grumbling stomach waits
Dipped in sauce
Yum!

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 :)
