be amazed
the fourth edition of the cherita : your storybook journal

be amazed : the September edition of the cherita : your storybook journal is here ! 

Larry Kimmel has selected 86 new and original cherita by 38 poets from England, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Philippines, India, West Africa and the USA.

I hope you will find the storytelling within as fascinating as I did. The collection has, again, been designed to showcase individual cherita, but is also designed to be read as a single long poem. There is a kind of narrative braiding going on in be amazed, as themes of joy, angst, fear, love, loss and sheer amazement appear, fade away, only to reappear. 


Here is an example from the book :-
