Frankenstein et al. – Donna Matthews

dark shadows
mummies stirring
frankenstein’s monster
werewolves and vampires
black raven’s razor-sharp beaks
creatures of the dark rising up
to unleash their fury in your dreams
trapped in the ancient fear of night monsters

The above poem is written as an Etheree poem. The Etheree poem is ten lines with a 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10 syllable count. The format can also be reversed for 10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 syllable count. A Double Etheree has both a regular and reversed Etheree combined.  Learn more about various poetry styles here.

I started writing a couple of years ago as part of my then job description and have grown to love the poetry, prose, and short story genres.  In addition to writing, I also love to read, paint, take pictures, and explore the world on foot.  I am passionate about helping others find their voice in both the writing and art communities.
