Cherita - OctPoWriMo Day 3

Today's challenge was to try a new form, the Cherita. I've never heard of it before and will have to do some research to see if I was successful! I chose the word prompt "From the shadows." (Cheritas don't have titles, but if they did, I would call this Coyote Dreams.)

He waits, belly grounded.

She doesn’t forget - head count,
final lockdown, as sun says goodnight.

She knows he waits in the dark of shadows
for the night she comes after God hangs the moon -
won’t serve her hens up on a careless platter.


Penny on the lookout for danger

  3. Thanks. It is a fun form. Very easy to remember 1,2,3...but I'm sure there are nuances I need to discover.

  4. Nice job, Katelyn. The opening line set the idea of needing to be watchful. I especially liked the line: "...she comes after God hung the moon..." Thank you. xoA
