    Developed by Joseph S. Spence Sr., the EPULAERYU is a poetic form all about delicious foods. This intriguing poetic form is the direct result of experiencing Mediterranean and Far East cultures and enjoying the many succulent, nourishing meals & food during those various travels.

    The word "Epulae" is derived from the Latin word meaning a feast or very large meal. The second part of epulaeryu -- "Ryu" -- was selected from the Asian arts meaning form, style, or a certain way of doing something. Thus the epulaeryu may be translated as "Feast style" -- a new poetic form that tantalizes the taste buds with home cooking and drinks with an international flavor.

    The epulaeryu consists of seven lines with thirty-two syllables. The first line has seven syllables, the second line five, the third line seven, the fourth line five, the fifth line five, the sixth line two, and the seventh line has only one syllable which ends with an exclamation mark. Each line has one thought relating to the main course. The last line ends with an exclamation point, expressing the writer’s excitement and feelings about the poem. In this form, rhymes are a bonus.

    Breakfast Feast

    Cheerful eggs, sunny-side-up.
    Toasted home-baked bread.
    Thick slab, honey-maple ham.
    Orange pekoe tea
    and my home-made jam,
    create a
    FEAST!

    Example 2 by Joseph S. Spence Sr.

    Barbequed Prime Steak

    Cooking on the grill so sweet
    Barbequed prime steak
    My mouth is just watering
    Waiting for this treat
    Sauce smells so good
    Super taste
    Bam!
