An image poem from San Miguel for Dverse Poets

Late January and Azores 388






Prompt for Dverse¬†Poets on Thursday was about Imagism. ¬† I have always wondered about the imagist poem by William Carlos Williams about the wheelbarrow. It begins with ‘ So much depends’

I have been trying to write some responses and sonnets and also to write up about our recent trip to the Azores. There’s several images that I keep seeing and wanting to play words with.

So much depends on

A boat blessed by a radiant virgin

Mists over the cratered peaks

Waves crashing to the shore

Darkening beach with basalt rocks

Glistening with each drop of brine
