Hunted #etheree #doubleetheree

A demon
Heartless killer
Relentless pursuit
Across frozen wasteland
Cruel eyes seeking my essence
Looks for my warmth on frigid plane
Follows my foot prints across the snow
I don’t dare turn to see how near he is
Not much further and I will find shelter
I approach a bunker full of friends
No fears can follow me in there
Helping hands reach out for me
A place out of harms way
A place of comfort
I have escaped
No more fear


Written for Colleen’s Poetry challenge.  Each week she gives us two keywords, only we must use synonyms only, not the words themselves.  The words this week are “Cold” and “Safe“.   This week I chose an Etheree, well technically a Double Etheree.


Note – Fiyero (my boxer) resents my insinuation that he is a coldblooded killer ;)  Yes, that is him up there chasing his “sister” Idina through the snow….

      Before I wrote the first word I had the idea of making a little story, I guess that story was a bit dystopian, wasn’t it ;) And Fiery has forgiven me… Looking through pictures real quick while I was at work this was the first one that was at all fitting that came up, so the poor puppies became monsters :)

          Fiyero does look ferocious in this photo, but, no, he isn’t. It is so funny watching the two dogs play, because they look so mean, and they growl and gnash their teeth and all, but they aren’t really biting – I can stick my hand in the middle without fear.
