Stygian White (Etheree)

Thatched
Old roof
Bathed in pools
Of cloud’s sad gift
Vexing sullen shack
Who trembles holding back
To spite the stygian white
Marred branches of uneven size
Four frail panes worrying one weak latch
Windows of danger close nigh the rain’s pass

  1. Wow!!! I love your descriptions: “To spite the stygian white
    Marred branches of uneven size
    Four frail panes worrying one weak latch
    Windows of danger close nigh the rain’s pass…”

    When I read this Etheree, the images pop into my head. This is spectacular!!
