Bit Of A Teaser

Though not of the usual kind. This is an example of an etheree - ten lines, each growing by one syllable per line, from one to ten. Not quite as easy as it may appear... Try to write one, if you don't believe me...


Pocketed
 
Red
shiny
snooker balls
cluster tightly
in a triangle.                            
Like ripe, juicy cherries
sitting plump on green baize ground,
they wait for the game to commence.
Cannoning cue ball breaks formation;
one red sphere rolls to meet its destiny.
