The Cherita, August 2019

Issue: "coming home late"


fog settles

nothing looks
the same

without you,
I do not recognize
myself


how we loved

walking
in the snow

even
my footprints
seem lonely now


wheatfields

an exhalation
of blackbirds

rising and falling,
your voice comes
back to me


I pull

my memories
behind me

this train
hurtling through a life
that was never mine

A Cherita Lighthouse Award


we are tethered

to this earth
and to each other

our veins,
blue rhizomes searching
for light in the dark

A Cherita Lighthouse Award


enwrapped

in this blanket
of stars

the Milky Way
swirls above us
like a song

A Cherita Lighthouse Award
