YAY! Come ya all get composing EPANALEPSIS poetry you’ll love it, gandmutter- clutter has composed a perfect example, 🙂
chunks of myself run
around as toddlers who
hold hunks of my heart.
my fragmented thoughts
consider their future. it’s a
sadly fragmented world.
pieces of puzzles and
toys scattered on floor;
ordered home in pieces
cut another slice of bread
for peanut butter n’ jelly,
enjoying this slice of life.
“Epanalepsis” is a literary device developed into a new poetry form by Mick Talbot with repeated words, according to this pattern:
RED: Repeated words in epanalepsis don’t have to be identical, but must be in context.
BLUE: Epanalepsis can occur across two sentences.
GREEN: Same word used at the beginning and end of a sentence.
VIOLET: Epanalepsis can occur within a clause of a sentence.
(I used violet instead of Mick’s mauve because it shows up better on my page)
