Emily Ethereal

A Ghostly tautogram

Emily expired.


Emily exists.

Emily exists encumbered.

Emily exists erratically.

Emily exists eerily.

Emily exists emotionally.

Emily exists entirely ethereally.

Emily exists enough.

Even evermore,


Emily exists.


Edward exists eternally.

Edward exudes evil.

Edward evaded exorcisms.

Edward ended everyone else...

…even Emily.

*** Emily is a nice ghost. Edward…well, Edward is not.***

    Dirty rotten Edward! "Whatcha gonna do when he comes for you? Bad boy! Bad boy!"

    Don't know how I missed this, seeing as how I love ghosts a lot. This was really great. Love them evil old timers.

  • Awww, & I always thought Edward was such a righteous dude! Not as righteous as Emily, but...." I absolutely love the way you express yourself, Donna. In this case, it's rather blunt, to the point, & as direct as any child I have ever heard. It's perfect.

    A book in the works for kiddos, or adult kiddos, perhaps?

  • Naomi Goldabout a year ago

    Wait, this isn’t just a tautogram, it’s a full blown story! Very nice. 👻
