Winter, no fixed abode
edition eight of the cherita : your storybook journal
edited by ai li

Edition eight of the cherita has launched on New Year’s Day. You will now be able to read this in print and on Kindle on Amazon. After your enthusiastic and very encouraging response to the print edition of edition seven, I have decided to make available to all our readers the choice of two reading formats. The e-book will retain the images but these will not be in the print books for reasons of cost. 

We have 77 cherita from poets who hail from the UK, USA, Australia, Singapore, India, Canada, New Zealand, Ireland and Lithuania in this edition including two collaborative cherita with two writers.


Here is an example from the book :-


winter wind

I wrap myself in blankets

tap on windows
wanting to come in

Wishing you all a Happy New Year, and may love and light be with you always.

Thank you again for all your support and wonderful stories for the cherita without which there would have been no once upon a time . .
