Double Etheree poetry/poem

House on the Hill

House

On hill

Dark, evil

Reminder of

Dismembered bodies

Tormented maniac

Haunting the community

Steals cemetery cadavers

Lays body parts on top of their graves

Minus head, fingers and toes, leaves a rose

Heads covered every inch of the top floor

On second floor dogs of every breed

Gnawed with delight fingers and toes

Cats licking countless saw blades

Madman apprehended

Mix-up with the heads

Distinguishing

Who is who

Which grave

Fails

Double Etheree poem

April Moon

Spring

ground phlox

budding trees

green grass sprouting

red breasted robins

pecking through morning dew

sunrise empowering growth

within and without seeds evolve

realizing cascade of life source

strength emanates above and below

sundown manifests April’s full pink moon

glorious wonder smiles from on high

humankind’s disposition lifts

heightened adrenaline jolt

**cuckoos out and about

nature postulates

core renewal

full of hope

great moon

smiles

….

**cuckoo (s) noun:

 a silly or slightly crackbrained person:

an erratic person: crackpot

The Unanswerable

Unanswerable

Written in response to prompt:

V.J.’S WEEKLY CHALLENGE #39: UNANSWERABLE

The Unanswerable

Spring
are you
there waiting?
Stormy whiteout
falling on our heads
is this your answer, Spring?
Would you call off Winter please?
Snowflakes swirling in excitement
landing on expressive adjectives
snow laden evergreens, when is Easter?

and….
What did Thumper’s father say to him:
“If you can’t say something nice, don’t say nothin’ at all.”

Written in response to prompt:  What do you See? photo challenge Tuesday, Feb/26/2019

Etheree poetry

Heirship

She
appears
triumphant
princess of lore;
formidable trek
unveil castle, wherein
sovereign monstrous queen, jealous
for securing her dominance,
sent infant princess to distant land;
firm staff in hand owed birthright homecoming
