Childhood Joy – A Cherita


brooding clouds

finally spill their brew
of large, plopping raindrops.

on her daily walk, pace unchanged –
rediscovering her childhood joy
of walking in the rain

Nectar Drunk – A Cherita


a day very well spent

the rose garden is drenched
in the perfume of the blooms

I am one with the birds,
bees and butterflies
in a nectar drunk funk

Spring Rain



(I took this photo in my garden yesterday. Can’t wait for these peonies to open up:) The poor thing was in a deep bow this morning. Probably drunk on raindrops.)


birds have gone silent


they too are caught up

in the melody of the rain


nature walk interrupted

as may flowers and young leaves

dance in spring rain

In The Garden


in the garden

bees tinker
in and out of blooms

here and there
a petal tumbles,
gone adrift

Hints of Summer -A Cherita

clear spring night

cherry blossoms
painted with moonlight

rain clouds
have gone their way-
hints of summer
