Cherita #6

child went to the river

learned to bait
worms on his hook

released a dozen fish,
but love of nature snagged
was a keeper

carried mystery novel

bookmark fell
at the scene of the crime

returned to library
one year late and
received $70 fine

table set for two

wine poured into
crystal glasses

the course turned solo,
and her fingers tapped
a doggie-bag beat

Cherita #2

the crowd pushes through the zoo

well fed creatures
stretch and yawn

screaming children and
tourist waistlines
form the ursine punchline

Cherita #1

shut the box and locked it

grandma carried the load
to beloved garden plot

among the clementines and lilies
she labored, humming,
and buried it six feet deep
