  • Cherita

    Hiding underground bulb prepares

    To release its energy

    Green stalk jostles for light

    Silent golden Trumpets

    Sway in the breeze

    Heralding Spring

    Crushing weight of woes

    Odds outnumber

    Angels overwhelmed

    Throng of thoughts

    Drown good deeds

    Yet kindness prospers

    Words waft all around

    Their bittersweet aroma

    Has license to linger

    The liar spins his deceit

    As you look into his eyes

    Your reflection stares back

    Dog eared old friend

    Calming influence

    Companion through childhood

    Exploration and excitement

    Enjoyed together

    Adventure of words

    First flakes float through the air

    Flurries flustered by the breeze

    Fill the sky flitting down

    Flirting with existence

    Frosting the surface

    Fresh frozen pure white

    Bare branches wave at the morn

    Smiling sun returns greeting

    Warms with kindness

    Buds wake from slumber

    Peeking aloft

    As life renews once more

    A most interesting verse. As if spring was only a brief deception that blooms with promise and then reminds us that winter will come again. Do not become complacent. All born to beauty will eventually recoil beneath the fridgity of death. But out of that death will come new, though temporary, life.

    well, that's what it said to me just now

      Thank you It is a collection of 6 Cherita that were separately written that I decided to post together. It is interesting that they can be read together I really didn't know if they could

      You are welcome I learnt about this from mHenry. The formatting was messed up when I first posted hopefully it is clearer now
      Cherita is the Malay word for story or tale. A cherita consists of a single stanza of a one-line verse, followed by a two-line verse, and then finishing with a three-line verse. It can be written solo or with up to three partners
