Cherita Poems--By Lavana Kray--Romania

migration – 

the scud of birds
before the wind

amid a swirl of leaves
I do my plans to leave home
as I did every year

broken hourglass –

the humming table fan
spreads units of time

and I pretend
I meet you right now
falling in love again

    I read these forms with immense interest because I'm weak in this area and poems such as yours help me grow.
