Not poetry Friday yet, but I'm practicing with a new form this month called the Etheree.  

Etheree Taylor Armstrong (1918 - 1994) was a twentieth century American poet, and is credited with inventing this poetry form that consists of 10 lines of 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 syllables.

 
Believer
(written by John Christian Lewis; all rights reserved)
lash
me hard
to your wild
verve-soaked dreaming
plow me deep with shards
torn from fevered vision
let me be your prime foundation
anchored tight to servant bedrock
anoint me your torch bearing zealot
herald me as your first true believer

    Whew! You're definitely getting the feel of these already. I'm a bit envious - and behind, already...!

  2. I understand the feeling. This is the first month where I have not done it last minute. Good thing too because I am traveling for the next 2 weeks and will have minimal time to write. Can't wait to see yours.
