Daily poem

I’m going to give the Cherita a whirl. It should go like this. I’m not a big fan of centred or fancy layout poetry, but that’s part of the deal with this one. We’ll see if I get along with it.


Wind swings north, wildly;

shutters rattle,

tearing at their catches,

While in the attic,

cats prowl,

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.

  1. Yes, I think this suits you well. It’s a little richer than the haiku; which, giving my undisciplined mind, makes it easier for me to dive into. It will be fun to see where you will take me on this month’s journey.

    1. Thank you, Jerry. The haiku is one of those forms that is great…as far as it goes. I’m not a minimalist and I always feel there’s more to be said. We’ll see how this form works out.
