Cherita



the photo above sink

swaying right-left hazel
eyes

a luck of
recognition
black on crimson

dry down colors

houses shrug indifferent
roofs

in each zodiac
a sign of icy
cuts

under pressed thread stroke

huddled warm town
debating

frigid drab fog
swooping
the city




Note:  Cherita (pronounced CHAIR-rita) is a linked poetry form of one-, two-, and three-line stanzas.

  8. I love the sweep of those hazel eyes surveying the landscape and giving it to us..there is a sense of the ominous but also hope and coming together xo

  10. Great words. Swaying eyes is an intriguing visual. I'm dizzy often and it works for me.
