Etheree Poetry Form; consists of 10 lines of 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 syllables.

Coarse
and ripe,
half eaten
fermented lies
of an ugli fruit.
I choke on love’s vile dregs
offered on overripe days
when it is best not to inhale
the scent of roses ankle deep in
manure, aloof but still standing pretty.

I write poetry/prose/stories/short stories/verses for children/sketch/and have 6 chapters of a novel sitting there like that half eaten trifle in the fridge or bottle of Jack Daniels because something makes you afraid to eat it or drink... right now.. I am a proud Geordie from England's northern hemisphere and the beautiful city of Newcastle upon Tyne. I live with my lovely husband who came all the way from sunny California just for me, and my favourite animal, Bobble, our dog. I am a member of Greenpeace and Friends of the Earth and wish we could all do more, especially today, when such a lot is wrong.

  1. interesting form – and it really works here …. I love how it builds to the breaking point and then settles itself – the metaphors conjure such powerful images and emotions!
