betrayed by time,
endless skies press down
with the weight of water.
Sanded and salted, preserved,

lamented but unfound and scattered
so my ribs no longer know each other.
Over at the Imaginary Garden Margaret asked us to "play it again" with a previous prompt. I chose a form called anEtheree, an unrhymed syllable counting form, beginning with a first line of one syllable, and continue for ten lines increasing the syllable count by one each line, as follows: 1/2/3/4/5/6/7/8/9/10. The image is from Tess Kincaid at Magpie Tales and is also posted there. Please follow the links to both of these outstanding writing sites.
