Graffiti Prophets

Writing Challenge

This is Day 3 of my 30 Day Challenge.

Today’s piece of writing is an Etheree poem.

Etheree poetry consists of ten lines with ascending numbers of syllables. Line one has one syllable, line two has two syllables and so on.

There is also the reversed Etheree where there is a reverse countdown and a double Etheree where you start with a normal Etheree and finish with a reversed one.

All great fun!

Day 3 – The Etheree



sun’s tender
first rays, squeeze through
rusty old railings
onto a cement wall,
the city’s parchment covered
in notes from graffiti prophets,
blazing shards of light sweep across their
nighttime artistry – scars of tormented minds.
