Mean Irene


The Hurricane
by William Carlos Williams


The tree lay down
on the garage roof
and stretched, You
have your heaven,
it said, go to it.



The keen Irene Latham is hosting poetry friday at Live, Love, Explore: http://irenelatham.blogspot.com/2011/08/welcome-to-poetry-friday-roundup.html

Nature never fails to inspire verse. I hope that you remain safe as this hurricane too shall pass.

I love this little WCW poem, and I sure do hope Irene isn't too mean... thanks for calling me "keen" instead. Also, should you have any storm poems of your own, we are doing a special "storm" issue of Birmingham Arts Journal slated for April 2012 with a submission deadline of Dec. 31. I serve as poetry editor and would love to see your work! birminghamartsjournal dot com
