Readers, friends & fellow bloggers!
Wishing you all a wonderful week ahead 🙂
Well, this week, the poetic form is an Etheree. This is a rather simple form of poetry & a delight to write. Read the following paragraphs to know how is an Etheree written.
The poetry form, Etheree, consists of 10 lines of 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 syllables. Etheree can also be reversed and written 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1. Get creative and write an Etheree with more than one verse, but follow suit with an inverted syllable count.
Reversed Etheree: 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1
Double Etheree: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 10, 9, 8, 7, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1
…Triple Etheree, Quadruple Etheree, and so on!
Example #1: Your Wild Awakening Scent of woods; callouses on hands I stroke speak of hard-spent days. I trace a stubbled chin and hear my name unspoken in a warm unwavering gaze. Pressing kisses taste of surging need. I revel in your wild awakening.

This reminds me of a nonet, but with an extra line to play with 😀

I do! I like it very much! Unfortunately though, between shifting and looking for work I have had neither the time nor the inspiration to write 😦
…but I will make a comeback 🙂 eventually…
Aww! It is fine El! Take your time. I do miss your writes, but you can anytime participate in this.
