Etheree – Frilly Poppy
A blog I recently discovered is Amy’s whose poetry I find inspiring. She has introduced me to the Etheree which she found at Hedgewitch at Imaginary Garden With Real Toads. Hedgewitch offered up a form challenge: the etheree. … one syllable, two syllables… on up to ten. You can even take ten, go back to nine, and down to one to for a reverse or double etheree. Amy added to the challenge by making the subject something ethereal too. Here’s mine.
all curl’d up
feathery frilly mop head
Gorgeous in its brash gaudiness
Beckoning to nectar hungry bees
Blooming beautifully for just one day.
