The Cherita, November 2019

Issue: "the storyteller"


mountains

strung together
in the distance

these blue beads
circling my wrist,
a metaphor

A Cherita Lighthouse Award


my life

stretches before me
like a ribbon of taffy

I choose
to taste every colour
of the rainbow

A Cherita Lighthouse Award


the light

of earthstar fungi
flickers along this trail

I have
never learned how
to be lost


moon-silvered

snowy owls shimmer
on the wing

they ask
nothing of us,
yet give everything


in the fernery

my breathing
deepens

I pause
for a moment
and let my lungs sing


the mountain

beneath my feet
consoles me

every burden
becomes lighter
at this altitude
