ATLAS POETICA 27 - Cherita poems

Cherita combine the demands of flash fiction to tell a story with the tanka demand for lyricism. The cherita (chair-ee-tah) was  invented by ai li.

A cherita consists of a one-line stanza, followed by a two-line stanza, and then finishing with a three-line stanza. It can either be written solo or by up to three partners.

migration - 

the scud of birds
before the wind

amid a swirl of leaves
I do my plans to leave home

and I pretend

falling in love again

soft light -

a butterfly shaking off
old spider webs

in the painting class
where the students focus
on a nude
