no legs~~ cherita 1

I’m a fish out of water

throw me
back into the sea

I’ll swim backwards
into the time
before I had legs

My Lover Cherita 2

my lover was a drummer

he held my rhythm
in his hands

we lost the melody

I love writing--It's my joy, my therapy--my confession. I'm a performer, dancer, yoga and meditation instructor, write a poetry column for Rafu Shimpo. Growth and love of life is a key to my happiness.
