Three Cherita


as the story goes

one night
under a new moon

nothing happened
that couldn’t be changed
by morning




morning sun
warms the room

listening to Debussy

everyone sleeping still
I’m dreaming inside
an unbroken egg




tall pine
at end of drive

I miss the mountains

a path
to the peak
I find in myself
