Poem about food written using the Epulaeryu form.
A good curry hits the spot
When either it's mild
or so tongue scorchingly hot
Asian herbs, spices
combined what a treat
rice, naan bread,

Written in the Epulaeryu form for the Poet's Place group

The Poet's Place   (E)
Poets can discuss, review, request reviews, etc. of their unique form of writing.

"The Epulaeryu poem is all about delicious food. It consists of seven lines with thirty-three (33) syllables. The first line has seven (7) syllables, the second line five (5), the third line seven (7), the fourth line five (5), the fifth line five (5), the sixth line three (3), and the seventh line has only one (1) syllable which ends with an exclamation mark. The form is 7/5/7/5/5/3/1. Each line has one thought which is about the main course. Therefore, this poetic form, the Epulaeryu, which has corresponding lines built around the main course and ending with an exclamation point, concludes with the ending line expressing the writer’s excitement and feelings about the poem. The poem may be rhymed or unrhymed."
