Manifestation Of A Buddha

A child missing for a year in remote Nepal,
re-emerges now 'The Enlightened one, '
the reincarnated Buddha, cross-legged
beneath a tree. No sign of ten months

From The Inside Out – An Autistic View

The autistic child’s fingers fly across
the keys releasing inaudible syllables
of joy, floating upward between
his fingers.

Any Other Name

A charred piece of bread doesn't care
if it is given the name of “toast.”
Neither does a bird pause its song
to see itself properly identified

A Little Blue Shell

A fragile robin’s egg lies in my path, unbroken

about forty-five feet below it’s mother’s nest.

Dream Pockets

Awakened in haste,
I threw my cotton sheets
into random creases, capturing
my startled dreams.

Thanks, I deeply enjoyed your poem. This is a fascinating true story that I also read about, and believe on his rebirth in a new body. I came to read your poem as a cross reference from my poem on Lord Buddha. Please come to read mine.

Technically sound but spontaneous as a hot ember after a fire, Cheryl's poetry pushes the limits of the American-English dialect. By combining the structural soundness of a studied poet with the curious wonder of a child-like spirit, her work illustrates the potential of the American mind. While Cheryl does God’s work “for a living, ” the youthful exuberance of her creative writing, juxtaposed with an honest real-world perception, conveys an indomitable joy that dwells in her heart- in defiance of troubling realties- to produce poetry that should stand strong among the treasures of the American canon. Or, more accurately and concisely, what Carole said: >)
