Reel in hope – Etheree style

Taught not to believe what we cannot see

Each moment makes me feel uneasy

No obvious signs to calm me

Just a little spot of faith

Trust your body, they say

That’s easier said

Each day, clean slate

Reel in hope

Calm down

Dear Readers,

What you just read is an interesting and simple style of poetry called an Etheree. It consists of 10 lines of 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 syllables as the poem progresses. 

Hope you enjoyed it and let me know your thoughts!

  1. Oh! I feels great to know people still write in these styles… They are quite difficult since you have to limit yourself in order to stick to the pattern. I appreciate this! It’s wonderful.
