Synonyms this week are: search and lost
For Search – Look, or hunt for lost astray, Steering me off
I wrote a couple of Etherees… This was in the window of an art shop on King’s Parade, Cambridge.
Three dear mice
Full of colour
Their artsy makes me smile
Steering me off my planned course
Where was I going? Oh, yes work!
I’d rather stay and play with you guys
Maybe see you later, I finish soon!
Astray it hangs
Placed at eye level
Imagine its sad plight
I pause for a brief moment
Faceless it waits patiently
For its owner to come pick it up
It has become a stray mask with no home.

Hope you enjoyed the Etheree poems. Bye for now!
I enjoyed both poems. The mask poem, though beautiful, made me feel a little sad because it represents our pandemic time and because the mask is there all by its lonesome.
Yes, I agree Priscilla. I put the mouse one first as more of a favourite of the two. Hope it didn’t make you too sad.
Hi Marje I really like both Etheree especially the the mask, so relivant 💜💜
Thanks Willow. I’m glad, I wasn’t too sure whether to add that one as it was a bit sad. What with the covid world and all.
Yes but even so it’s relivant and the two compliment each other.💜
Yes they do! Thanks Willow. 🙂
I liked both of the poems, Marje. I hope someday our masks will be set aside.
Yes me too Denise. <3
Loved them both Marje.. sadly the mask will remain there attractive though it is as only its owner will dare to wear again… such is our life at the moment. xx
Thank you Sally. Yes, I know. I wonder when we will be able to discard the masks for good Sally. I fear it may be a long time still. xx
The mask says it all… it’s kind of a general disregard for all norms right now, isn’t it? (Innit?) LOL! Well done, Marje! <3
Thanks Colleen. Yes I see lost ones everywhere. Even spotted one hanging like a hammock from some bushes! Lol
Wow! I must say… I’ve not seen many floating around. I guess that’s a good thing. <3
Yes it is! <3
Love these. <3
Thank you so much Adele
