each aching inhale.
Cautious you might breath out
and send me spinning upwards.
A helicopter seed whirling
away as if I’d never been there,
the hollow I’d leave unnoticed by you.
These were never wing, they were always sails.
Filled up with questions I asked myself,
to keep my feet from touching down
on lands unfamiliar,
filled with strangers like me
always pulling at
If you want to know more about this form of poetry then check out Colleen’s handy post on how to write an Etheree. I’ve not come across them before, though the form reminds me a little of Fibs which are great fun to write.
The two words for this week’s prompt were ‘Mystery’ and ‘Attraction’ so I went with ‘pulling’ and ‘questions’.
Carol, what a magnificent double Etheree! I love the way your words flowed. Great emotions in this piece. ❤

Beautiful, insightful, and yet so lost. The poem flows within the form and ends on such a wrenching note. Excellent, Carol.
Thank you. 😀
