sherku: sort of

I am well
Sort of, like
Well enough
To eat garden
Fresh lettuce
And spinach

For Uncle Albert

sherku: sum it up

Live folk music
A great sound setting
A slice of
Cheesecake with my
Name on it

What is a sherku?  

By the writing on the index card, from the same night as the Peter Yarrow concert at Circle of Friends Coffeehouse. Also part of the misplaced index cards until they were recently found.

sherku: CTA Midway

The rails sang
Then the platform
Shuddered before
Train pulls up
Opening doors

What is a sherku?  

Actually written on the return via CTA to Midway from the #SOBCon 2012 Conference. The index card had been misplaced among my notes until recently.

Familiar tunes
Brought tears til
I could cry no more

What is a sherku?

sherku: simplicity

Got lost and found
Got a flat tire
Fixed for free
All due to
'I love your accent'

What is a sherku?  

Sparked by stories from Trevor and Annie's trip to the USA

Each holiday brings
Another first
Without Dad
His place is filled
With good times

Swaths of green
Contrast where the
Lawn mower
Passed weekly
Duty completed

This morning
Green maple leaves
Catching the sun
Become a new
Translucent green

Husking sweet corn
Warm green grass
Golden IPA
Quenches thirst
