Around the same time I read an echo poem written by Oliana on Traces of the Soul. I decided to see if I could create a poem using that style.
Oliana stated that in an echo poem “the last syllable or two of a main line is repeated, perhaps with different spelling or meaning, as if an echo; usually this echo will be indented to a point under or beyond the syllable it mimics and will function as an independent line of one or two syllables.”
Here is my beginner’s attempt!
left home at seventeen, did not look back
life unfolds- study, marry, children arrive
challenges occur- divorce and illness
families of choice materialize
ancient wounds healing, become whole again
belonging and connection do abound
