What is Ekkensian verse?

I have created the "Ekkensian" poetry form using the following structure:

 

Iambic rhythm

Rhyme

lline 1

five feet

a

line 2

two feet

b

line 3

two feet

c

line 4

five feet

a

line 5

one foot

repeat

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

On this tab, we've included Ekkensian verse written by Tom Ekkens.

On the "Ekkensian Verse (Others)" tab, we've listed other poets' contributions to this new poetic form.

We encourage other poets who enjoy poetic forms to write Ekkensian verse. TAE Gallery will post your poems on this site with your permission. If you are interested, please contact us via e-mail or call 650.355.4640.
