writing report for
friend’s return on Monday.
Now too tired to blog tonight
so will continue Antibes story
tomorrow after a good night’s sleep
having read more of Charlie Fox’s adventures.
This is another attempt at writing an etheree. Exactly one year ago today I made my first attempt but got it wrong. The basic etheree form has ten lines, the first consisting of exactly one syllable, the second line of two syllables, and so on until the last line has ten syllables. An etheree can also be reversed, starting with ten syllables and ending with one. But I wrote one word on the first line, two on the second and so on. It wasn’t until after I wrote my poem on Snow in Brooklyn that I found my mistake.
But the date on the camera is wrong – it was 15/8/2011.

etheree or not, the poem is fun 🙂
Thank you for the comment. Just going over to see what you are about. 🙂
rise and shine,
I hope you are
feeling so refreshed
after a nice long sleep
and are ready to start the
day with a smile and a coffee.
And now it’s goodbye from me because
I seem to have run out of things to say.
Thank you friend. You are very clever. 🙂
Never heard of this form and love it. Now for more hours in the day. Stay strong.
Thank you for dropping by. It’s a fun form of poetry, try it sometime. 🙂
How clever. I will try it one day. But it takes me a while to get the Six Word Saturday sentence written so this type of poem may require a month.
Thanks Patricia. Do give it a try it really is fun!
Good etheree, you summed up your thoughts/feelings very well.
Thanks – it was a very long day!
I’ve never heard of this form, either, but I think it is fun, and yours was delightful. I also love that picture of snow in Brooklyn , especially as we are still very much in our summer season.
We are noticing the evenings getting lighter here and so are convinced that spring is on its way. Summer, though, is still months away. 🙂
Funny, because we’ve been noticing the morning light seems to come a little bit later and later here. I love the fall, but I’m not partial to winter.
