One December Night (etheree)

I

don’t know

how deeply

I miss you ’till

one December night

when bright lights and carols

became pitch darkness and noise

December without you once more

how lonely my nights be over again.

    you capture the emptiness when someone isn’t around to share in life’s simplicity. even bright lights fail to elevate. beautifully written Mich

  7. GOOD STUFF—but what are the rules for an “etheree”?

    1. michnavs says:

      A poem composed of 10 lines. Begin the first line with 1 syllable word, second line with 2 syllables and so on until the last line with 10 syllables…
      You can then experiment with this form ..do it inverted start with 10 syllables: double etheree; mirrored etheree…there’s just so much you can do…it’s fun..

    You have a way with the Etheree Mich. I remember the ones you wrote a while ago. This gives another side to Christmas for some but hopefully, as time goes on, the lights will start to glow again.
