An Etheree is a 10-line poem in which each line follows a syllable count that matches the line number. For example, the first line has one syllable, the second has two, etc. The poem is unrhymed but has rhythm, meaning, imagery, and sometimes an underlying second meaning.23 May 2017.’
The etheree can take a variety of different forms, but for this, my first attempt, I have kept things simple (if that is the correct word for a tricky exercise) and hopefully straightforward.
Along the seashore
With only one purpose
Looking for his sand imprints
The staunch assurance in his stride
Resolution taut as pre-stressed steel
Hoping against hope she’d find him weeping
