myself to breathe and to write
I am side-stepping the (optional) group prompt suggested for the National Poetry Writing Month #NaPoWriMo challenge.
I've given myself the challenge to write a cherita poem (pronounced CHAIR-rita).
Cherita* is a linked poetry form of one-, two-, and three-line stanzas.
When I first read about it I loved the idea that a longer story could be told in a poetic form. Then other things distracted me and I put it on the shelf.
