Happy New Year to all our cherita friends and aficionados out there.

nights is our first edition for 2021 and the eighth edition of our fourth year of being.
It numbers 46 in the cherita series of storytelling books.

2021 – a new year with two good success rate Covid vaccines to look forward to. At last, there appears to be some positive news for us Brits, to hopefully be able to reclaim some kind of normality in all our lives. My fervent prayer is for everyone around the world to soon be able to have these vaccines to enable them to hopefully stay healthy throughout the new year, and be able to get out of their lockdowns.

In the midst of collating #4:8 over the quiet festive period, I decided to put together another new one breath cherita book of mine how soft the light. More details of my book follow on below.

Writing Cherita was again a healing process for me during our interminable lockdown. My stories help make my world whole again, almost tangible, even out of dreamtime. Words, like old dialects, softening my writing nights into a magical oasis of remembrance.

not a sound

on
my rooftop

a snowflake
landing
on my tongue

how soft the light belongs to the ongoing writing in one breath series of 15 virgin Cherita, Cherita and Tanka, Cherita and Haiku, and Cherita, Tanka and Haiku books. All these editions are available in paperback and on kindle on Amazon.

nights belongs to the ongoing the cherita series, currently numbering 46 on the list, as do my personal ongoing writing in one breath series of 14 virgin Cherita, Cherita and Tanka, Cherita and Haiku, and Cherita, Tanka and Haiku books, and lastly my poems for inner rooms series with its 18 Tanka and Haiku books. All these editions are available in paperback and on kindle on Amazon.

I have edited nights as I have all the other editions of the cherita, to be experienced two ways. It can be read as one storybook but also as an anthology of individual poems. Two reading experiences within one book, filled with stories of Life, Love and Loss.

cherita terbalik continues to capture the imagination of poets and there are again fine examples in this edition.

Featured Poets as they appear in nights:-

Larry Kimmel/ Joanna Ashwell/ ai li/ Orrin/ Kath Abela Wilson/ Jackie Chou/ Patricia Prime/ Taura Scott/ Stella Damarjati/ Bryan Rickert/ Carol Purington/ Sherry Grant/ James Haddad/ Peter Jastermsky/ S.Radhamani/ Christine L.

EXAMPLE OF WORK from nights:

so
the moon and stars
aren’t shining

but
that’s no reason

why we shouldn’t

The cherita lighthouse has been awarded to the following writers and poets in this edition for their timeless Cherita :

Joanna Ashwell/ Kath Abela Wilson/ Jackie Chou/ Taura Scott/ Réka Nyitrai/ Elva Lauter/ Peter Jastermsky/ Patricia Prime/

nights has been edited to be experienced two ways very much like the cherita. It can be read as a storybook and as an anthology of individual poems

I have enjoyed the challenge of selecting and collating for this edition of the cherita and hope that you will find the cherita within worthy of a campfire gathering and the sharing of meaningful stories.

If this new edition strikes a chord with you, please feel free to review, comment on Amazon or give a feedback directly to me. Many thanks.
