Wicked-Good Wednesday: Liquid Moon & Wise Trees
Do you remember a time when you came across a poem that moved you deeply?
I don’t mean, that you just liked the poem.
No! I mean, maybe you read something and felt like you could not take a breath – or that you left your body – or you were flying around above the earth with joy and happiness at this new thought or image you just read in a poem.
The poetry of William Carlos Williams came alive in my spirit in the late 1980s when I was a MFA student in the School of Fine Arts at West Virginia University. I spent 2 years studying everything that was published on him and his work.
WCW’s poetry and essays influenced everything I did during those 2 years of intensive studies. His words gave me impressions that were visual images for my paintings, my written thesis, and my MFA exhibition in the art gallery in the spring of 1991.
Below, I have included a poem, published today in the Old Farmer’s Almanac Companion Newsletter. This publication arrives quietly in my mailbox each morning. You may enjoy this remarkable Companion Newsletter. It is FREE! Read it!
moves gently among
the long branches.
Thus having prepared their buds
against a sure winter
the wise trees
stand sleeping in the cold.
–William Carlos Williams (1883–1963)
