Worlds Apart (Etheree)



Heart woven

Eyes linked to page

Half a world away

Two sides of an earth mold

Our minds dance intricately

Passion spikes with instant response

Words fly through arterial web flow 

You are my Q-R-S; I am your T


Our words reach through untold miles. A loved one can be half a world away yet so close to ones’ heart.

Etheree poem: 10 lines, each syllable increases by one starting with one syllable (or 10 if going the other way).

Fatigue (Pleides)

Fatigue….. my fatal friend

   Forged from spirit rended

  Feeble fight weakly fends

  Failed anchor drifts again

          Forlorn thoughts must amend

        Faith empowers….thoughts transcend

          Frail mind will someday mend


Everyone, at some point in their life, experiences soul rending fatigue .  Thoughts drift towards dark hopelessness.  Yet there is hope for a brighter tomorrow.  I know that Faith and Prayer can change my heart when it is full with aching sadness.

“F” words make for great pleides.  I have grown to appreciate them through cognitive testing, as one of the tests is to see how many “f” words  I can say in one minute.  At first, my mind just wouldn’t give me any, other then the overused “fuuuuuuuccccckkkk”, which ran around and around my mind as I struggled for “furniture” and “flower”.  Ever determined, I decided to study “F” words for poetic forms.  And that, coupled with my mood on the day of creation, made this poem.  I was successful in finding “f” words appropriate for the start of this poetic form, AND I was able to rhyme a pleides, not easy to do (!), so silver linings are intact and beautiful!  Although…don’t ask me to find another word that ends in, well,  END!
