Surrender your Cherries.Posted: July 5, 2013
Photograph taken by me! At the Bristol Suspension Bridge overlooking the Avon Gorge in Bristol, UK. The head you see belongs to one of my best friends. I hadn’t seen her in years and we walked up to the cliff top to talk and sit on our favorite bench.
The poem was written as a follow up poem, inspired by Beatricia Sagar’s, No Cherry’s as part of a blog thread created by ‘Studio B Poets’. I am one of 14 to be involved in a summer long commitment to posting a poem everyday on our tumblr blog. We were inspired by O’Miami a bi-annual poetry festival that ran for the month of April, it’s mission was to get a poem to everyone throughout Miami Dade. Our mission is a commitment to keeping poetry alive, we will be performing spoken word come October at the Besty Hotel on South Beach, in their fitting, B-Bar.
