Happy New Year folks..
OK i knw i have been a little late on this 😦
but m happy that i have managed to make it in time atleast 😕
This year i have promised to be as regular and loyal to my blogs and the various prompts that i have been doing… And esp to Jingle for introducing a whole new world of poetry to me.. I shall always be grateful to her for discovering me and yes will try to be as regular on the Poets Rally as I can .. and this is one promise I definitely intend keeping up…
I also intend to take up as many new forms of poetry as I can and practice all the old ones too 🙂
So for this week’s rally I present a new form (atleast new to me) Etheree
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
~::~ Tea-Time ~::~
My notions mellow
Tensions dissolve away
The nectar graces my throat
Feeling of warmth spreads across me
I bite into some sugar cookies
After all its me time – my tea time. Bliss!
As time goes by I head back to my seat
Work sucking me in like a twister
My head spins, I amble around
Marching forth like a soldier
Fallen, struck but not gone
Fight at all costs
But burn out
I hope you guys enjoyed the poem and the form.
Sorry Ji for being a little late..I hope you are kind and considerate as ever and do welcome me with open arms like you always do J
That’s it from Megzone for now..
Keep Smiling…!! Keep Rocking..!! Keep Blogging…!!

Very sweet, Meg. Made me sad for ending the tea time and being sucked back into the work time. Especially today where I am sitting in my chair, drinking my coffee, thinking about going to work/school tomorrow. And knowing every fiber of my being does not want to go!!!! No!!!!
Thank you for nailing it on the head for me.
