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.


 1
migration - 

the scud of birds
before the wind


amid a swirl of leaves
I do my plans to leave home
as I did every year

2
broken hourglass -

the humming table fan
spreads units of time


and I pretend
I meet you right now
falling in love again

3
soft light -

a butterfly shaking off
old spider webs


in the painting class
where the students focus
on a nude
