Joie de Vivre: Echo Verse (Letters from the Soul #10)

Every moment should be a celebration
Echo - Elation

We met in this non-stop party called "life"
Echo- Thrive

Remember it's not going to last forever
Echo- Savour

We are bohemian visitors in this party
Echo- Hearty

Solving a riddle of success, errors, and trials
Echo- Smiles

Reading a book of joy, love, and pain 
Echo- Rain

The sun shines again with a promise
Echo- Astonish

Duality is its another name
Echo - Game

Let's party, play, sing, and dance
Echo- Trance

Celebrate life; be a lover
Echo- Joie de Vivre

Note: This is an Echo Verse poem. In an echo verse poem, the last word or syllable in a line is echoed underneath to form a rhyming line. The echo will function as an independent line. 
The echo verse often changes the echoed word in some clever or cynical manner. The last line of the poem is often the title of the poem. 

P.S. Joie de Vivre is a French phrase which means the joy of living. It is often used in English to express an exultation of spirit; a cheerful enjoyment of life. 


  1. I loved your choice of echoed words dear. They add a deeper meaning.

  2. Hari OM
    another poetic meter I had not met before - this is joyful indeed, Purba! YAM xx

  3. Loved it Purba:) Haven't tried this form. Should give it a go before the end of atoz.

  4. That's such an uplifting and inspiring poem, Purba!

  5. Beautiful words woven a beautiful poem. Love it. Priya from priyreflects

  6. This seems quite difficult but so well done :) The entire poems echoes the joy of living!

  7. I liked the poem, but this is the first time I'm reading this particular type. Congrats, you are trying different genres in the nerve-wracking pressure of A to Z! Takes a lot of effort.

  8. You have such profound understanding of the art of writing poems Purba. Loved this one.
