CHERA HAMMONS
Poet and Writer

Welcome.

Thank you for finding my online presence! I am a writer of poetry, critical essays, and short fiction, and a reveler in language. I believe in words, in the way that they can sing of a human spirit which, though often weary and frequently suffering, nonetheless laughs.

I owe much to my family, friends, nice weather, and not being in the wrong place at the wrong time. My fascination with life and the cyclical order of the world, and the way things are and aren't, is what drives me. I try not to be afraid either of asking or reacting. I hope you find my work to be meaningful to you emotionally, rationally, or ideally, both.

I have to believe that poetry has always been relevant and will always be so. We may not know it, our children may not know it, but our descendants will.

"These things move within you as lights and shadows in pairs that cling.
And when the shadow fades and is no more, the light that lingers becomes a shadow to another light." - Khalil Gibran, The Prophet
