Here is my Etheree poem for this week’s poetry challenge using the word “slip” for fall, and “endeavor” for the word, try. This poetry form is now part of the challenge.

Slip Into Mabon

Slip
into
Mabon and
celebrate the
rituals of the
season by sharing food,
counting one’s hidden blessings,
honoring the mother goddess,
filled with an endeavor to succeed
by remembering our ancestor’s truth.

What is an Etheree Poem?

I’m adding another poetry form to Colleen’s Weekly Poetry Challenge starting September 25th, 2018. It’s called an Etheree Poem.

The lovely Hélène Vaillant from Willow Poetry has been creating a poetry form that I had never seen before. Take a look at her poem HERE.

I researched the form and here is what I learned:

The Etheree poem consists of ten 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. The trick is to create a memorable message within the required format.

Poets can get creative and write an Etheree with more than one verse, but the idea is to follow suit with an inverted syllable count.

Reversed Etheree Syllable Count: 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1

Double Etheree Syllable Count: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 10, 9, 8, 7, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1
