This post is in response to the prompts for Day 8 provided by Poetry 101 course of Blogging University. This day’s requirement is to write a poem on “Pleasure”  using anaphora or epistrophe. Anaphora is a poetic device that relies on the repetition of the same word or phrase at the beginning of each verse and epistrophe is the repetition of the same word or phrase at the end of verses.

I have used epistrophe in the below poem:

 

The exquisite sunrise with chirping birds,

The invigorating sea with covert marine world,

The starlit sky aboding colorful clouds,

The aromatic flowers with leaves abound,

These pleasures are unique,

These pleasures are invaluable!

 

The joy when a new life takes birth,

The smile of a child, the dreams of an adult,

The romance and warmth of a couple in love,

The success in career, the pride in your work,

These pleasures are unique,

These pleasures are invaluable!

 

The encouragement of folks, the time with friends,

The silence of night, the voice of inner self,

The journey to accomplish your dreams in life,

The first date, the first job and the first dive,

These pleasures are unique,

These pleasures are invaluable!
