To HEAL the HURT


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.

The photograph was taken by me earlier on the North Sea coast of Yorkshire.

She

Was late

After  nine

Walking slowly

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
