sherku: fear knot

I wake fearful
take a breath
realize
it is a
new day, we
can do this!


for my wife, DS

sherku: calculate

If we knew
How much rain
A leaf could
Hold before
It tips to
Let it all go

sherku: one wet

My sweat drips
Road steam rises
Trees shimmer
With weight of
The summer
Rain makes one

sherku: memory cafe

While dancing
stopped to take
his pills and glass
Of milk, then
Continued
Right in time

sherku: summer shower

Refreshing
Getting caught
In this way
Rain shower
Walking on a
Summer day

sherku: pandemic triptych

Pandemic 1


Social distance 
Closes places 
Yet helping hands 
Blossom open 
for neighbors


Pandemic 2


Social distance 
Closes places 
Family time 
Together 
Virtually

Pandemic 3


Twenty three 
Years a table 
Family full 
Til hamstrung this 
Time by virus

sherku: meaning

Lyra finds that
"Everything
has a meaning,
if only
we could read it"


A 'foundku', that is a sherku mostly found in other writing. This from @PhilipPullman "Lyra's Oxford"  https://www.amazon.com/dp/B000UZJQL4/

To do list
Or not, I choose
Living and
Loving you
As my priority

Looking to live it

sherku: treed

To walk in
The deep woods
And know the trees
Each by name
Birch, oak, spruce
Sassafras

sherku: name it

Since naming it
Is just starting
The process to
Understand it
Find the name

sherku: summer


Is there anything  
Else more summer
Than tiger lilies
Along a white fence

Taking care of
Forensic evidence
Left by one or more
Unknown parties
