NaPoWriMo 2013, Poetry, Structured Poetic Form

Madness – an Etheree

Your
rips my heart,
yet tears have dried
sight has been restored;
your Light does not block me
though your darkness continues
on a blind course of destruction;
solace escapes you, madness within
you sow, harvest of your Love’s discontent.

The poetry form, Etheree, consists of 10 lines of 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 syllables. Etheree can also be reversed and written 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1. Get creative and write an Etheree with more than one verse, but follow suit with an inverted syllable count. Reversed Etheree: 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 Double Etheree: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 10, 9, 8, 7, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 …Triple Etheree, Quadruple Etheree, and so on! -from Shadow Poetry
