Written for: Poetic Bloomings2 – InForm Poet: Endecha
The endecha is a 16th-century Spanish poetic form with the following guidelines:
Quatrain (or four-line) poem (or stanzas).
Rhyme scheme: abcb
Seven syllables per line for lines one, two, and three.
Line four has 11 syllables.
Sparkling blue under the sun
Walls of waves toppling in
I silently applaud you,
and when tides tug along pearly shells, I grin.
Beach plums ripen on the path
uphill, tougher trek back home.
I drag my fee through coarse sand,
turning ’round for last glance, watching frills of foam.
I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York.
My goal is to create and share poetry with others
who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve
in you, and feel your sparks as well.
