Veteran (Etheree)

enclosed in
my ancient shell;
layered painted strips
on tattered peeling walls–
a remnant of yesteryear.
Etched markings give mute testament
when life revolved around my ringtone.
Veteran conversations reverberate.

    1. Off today so I have an advantage over you! I had a vision of what I wanted which fell way short of what I produced. I could feel the layers of history in this picture but my thoughts are a bit jumbled today. What you wrote was closer to what I wanted to say, you wordsmith master! I almost did a nonet as well, but waffled to free verse then when my words failed me I fell back on etheree, which I can usually do with my eyes closed. And HOW am I a Math geek? You take the honors for that Mr Math degree.
