Temptation

Charcoal on prepared paper 23 cm x 32 cm, 9 in x 12 in, 96 gms, 65 lb

Intention

I demonstrate what choices look like. Inclusion of mid-tones, shades, and deceptive simplicity because we can be tempted about which decision is best. Or at least better. Or even not so terrible.

Hope.

blackberry vines

 

sagging barn shrugs

against wooded hills

.

dark purple sweetness stains

mindful of the thorns

pluck, taste, and kerplunk

tomatoes sprout between the

alley and the depot wall

 

bounty, lush greens, peas

and yellow beans with

variegated peppers to accompany onions

Notes

Cherita Poetic Form

  • Cherita (pronounced CHAIR-rita) is a linked poetry form of one-, two-, and three-line stanzas.
  • A ‘linked poem’ is written solo or by poets working with partners or small groups, taking turns composing the alternating three-line and two-linestanzas.
  • Cherita is the Malay word for “story” or “tale”.
  • This poetic form has no title. Mine does.
  • The cherita tells a story was created by ai li, a UK poet in 1997 in memory of her grandparents.
