Joy and Grief (Etheree)

bubbles up,
from woe-striken pools
as thought melts away vile
tinged thoughts, leaving smeltered gold.
Mournful regrets give thoughts unsaid
impact as synaptic scars adhese.
Life-long memories, caged and cataloged.

Love layers grief with burnished retention
as burdensome thought is replaced with
helium delight. Memory,
sorted with rose-washed glass,
recalls ardent yearning;
irritation lost,
reflection now
the greatest

Etheree: Consists of 10 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.  Often used to contrast opposite ideas.

    1. HAHAHA. I have NO patience, cant do puzzles or crosswords to save my life. But I like cadence and rhythm and fitting syllables to forms. So I guess this is my Scrabble. PS: thank you for making me sound so exciting. LOL
