This is just to say

cherry blossom, miscarriage, memorial tree

This is just to say
I have eaten
all the cherries
that were in
the fridge

and which
I was probably
saving
for the weekend

But
they were delicious
so sweet
and so yummy

(By me, 20 May 2011, hijacked from William Carlos Williams)

Think I’ll put cherries on the shopping list now, making me hungry.

  1. Bravo! Bravo!

    I had an English professor in college who was very into poetry and always wanted us to find the deeper meaning of it, and although we got along fabulously well, I know it always annoyed her that my answer to “What is poetry?” was “Whatever you say it is” and that my favorite poet was William Carlos Williams because his poems weren’t complicated.
