Cherita August 10, 2017

The bird on the holly bush

Low to the ground singing
to elders in alder branches

From your vantage, do you see hope?
Show me then, where to fly
Pray, please guide me

Someday – A Cherita

The crescendo of cicadas

Morning is hotter
than yesterday’s noon

A nonchalant wind imbued with the scent
of a distant ocean I’ll never see
blows by

(inspired by Celestine’s work at https://readinpleasure.wordpress.com/ )

Teaching Humans To Fly

Relax deeply, secure in the updraft, ride the scree,
low in the pocket, let flexible tension arc about you,
buoyancy – wind rushing cilia,
spread under light and sky
in full spanned glory,
a journey upward
to thinner
rarefied
air.

Sequestered

Moonlight holds
dark milligrams,
pentagrams of photons
dispossessed, lost;
I witness the diaspora
of light. Darkness veils
as deafness, no evil
nor good when there is no need,
when eyes become superfluous.

When i Grow Up

I will cash in on thespian knowledge
So I really must know how to act
Or make a fortune while foretelling karma
Still I’d owe way too much deep in debt
So I’ll seek to reap riches from relating tales
About life being grand at the edge
Where only sweet water flows across miles
Evanescent, effervescent, ever long

ETA Never

Alight on fragrant air,
I somersault wildly
upside-down in updrafts,
born to barrel roll.

Ascension is my only
flight plan.

Ache

I never wanted anything more
than nothing less.

Haiku for the Day After

Imagine silence
Barren fields glow red neon
Now torrential rain

Biding

Everyday I find myself
with less incentive,
diminished energy;
subdued, I stoke
my flame for
the long
haul.

Sidekick

I’ve nowhere to turn except
to the expression of the timeless.
Though I am tired I forge ahead
convinced that the road leads direct
to the fount of some wisdom yet
undiscovered. Sadly, I am mistaken.
