It’s time to leave the stormy month of April behind and move into the warmth of May. That also means I will experiment with one or more poetic styles that begin with the letter E. I did some research and decided that Echo Poems might be fun to write. They seem so simple that I am sure they will be challenging to write. The pattern used in creating this verse is a type of call and response. It is fun to read them out loud. I call this poem Posting.

Creating an Echo Poem and Posting

The simple rule for creating an Echo Poem for the writer to repeat each line’s end syllable(s).

  1. The repeated syllable(s) must have its own line.
  2. These poems are short and to the point.
  3. There are no meter or rhyming rules.
  4. Repetition can take many creative forms.

I am excited about playing with this style of poetry. I worry that the repetition used to create this style might be boring. The only thing left for me to do is pick a theme and start writing. May could be a long month.
