The Cherita was created by al li. I’ve fallen in love with this lovely poetry form. And for each working day I shall endeavour to post a cherita a day on my blog. 🙂
Please, if you have time do visit the Cherita site, http://www.thecherita.com/flipbook/ to read wonderfully written Cherita, edited by Larry Kimmel. The Flipbook contains 76 new and original cherita by 32 poets from the UK, USA, India, Australia, Ireland, Canada and Ghana. Thank you. 🙂
a droplet of water
as if from the branches
soothing my parched soul
are a filter in my mind
seeping with long forgotten snippets
of words laced with the echoing tenor
of promises broken
but those golden moments
of a lull
and a hush
in the singing of birds
that glorious moment
when the dew is still fresh on the blooms
and I’m hypnotised by the beady shimmers
time stands still.
when from fluffy clouds
breaking through the dawn
I hear your whispers
in the gentle swaying of palms
I hear your voice
in the aroma of melodies
brewing from the mahogany
behind my window
I sigh in exultation
You thrill me, Lord.

the veil peels
fades to a gossamer thin
revealing the glow
of immortal bloom
his shroud a blossom in Spring
the tomb his victor
then hush, bleeding piece of dust
we rise, for He is risen.
Happy Easter 🙂Copyright © Celestine Nudanu 02/04/15 I appreciate your patience with me as I catch up on your blogs. Thanks a million! Shalom

Dear friends, I trust you had a lovely Easter as I did. Over here, today Monday is a day of picnics all over to celebrate the resurrection of Christ.

On Carpe Diem we are trying out a poem based on the Fibonacci sequence where the number of syllables in each line must equal the sum of the syllables in the two previous lines. So, start with 0 and 1, add them together to get your next number, which is also 1, 2 comes next, then add 2 and 1 to get 3, and so on. The Fibonacci sequence is: 0,1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21
Poetry: 1 syllable, 1 syllable, 2 syllables, 3 syllables, 5 syllables, 8 syllables, 13 syllables, 21 syllables and so on .. Not an easy form, but it’s a challenge and fun!
seeps its way
across the north-east
gradually sashaying inland
kissing foliage and then making love to waiting clouds
the cold and dry breeze welcomes the birth of Harmattan singing ‘o come all ye faithful!’Copyright © Celestine Nudanu (11/11/13)
