sherku: hurricane sandy


futility
is raking leaves
when the big storm
is known to be
on the way

sherku: gratefulness


Gratefulness
Runs deep
Revealing
Autumn colors
This birthday
For my love



For Dolores

sherku: mumbles



murmurs distract
mumbles linger
her words catch
ears, attention
bringing silence


Inspired during the recent Dodge Poetry Festival

sherku: question


Church pews
Narrow aisles
Safe space sitting
Recording forces
Movement to ask

sherku: fooling


not just fooling
with words
playing
with ideas
riding emotions
to live well

sherku: student work


knees bent
head down
patient pen lines
fractal patterns
poetry
covers her hand
