All is so peaceful in the here and now.
More tranquil than in the night before,
When shutters rattled and winds howled.
Storm abating at daybreak –
Leaving damp in its wake.
Sun dries paths muddy.
Moist grass now stirs,
In soft breeze.

Colleen’s Weekly Poetry Challenge

Synonyms only! Here are your two words: “CALM & PRESENT”

“An Etheree poem consists of ten 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.  The trick is to create a memorable message within the required format.”
