sherku: Lowell 3

Thoughtfully
touching air
she signs the lyrics
to "hand writing
on the wall"



What is a sherku?

Inspired by the 25th Annual Lowell Folk Festival


sherku: Lowell 2

There is so much
joy in the
a cappella voices
of Birmingham
Sunlight

sherku: Lowell 1

Spreading sun screen
on barely tanned
shoulders she
stands swaying
her sleek black shift

sherku: twirling


she had one hand
on the wheel driving
other hand twirling
a strand of hair

stirring he motions
reaches for paper
to write a note
about where he was

sherku: too close


Elderly airport
travel today
is not made for
making close
connections

sherku: their turn


the last lawn mower
rolled away
and kids began
playing games
in the yard
