Poet’s Corner: ‘Fall’


By Julian Wise

I no longer see dead flowers
I see the seeds of next year’s bloom.

Julian Wise lives in Chilmark. He is a former Calendar writer for The Martha’s Vineyard Times. This piece was inspired by the windflowers planted around the memorial plaque for Jena Pothier.

Poets with a connection to Martha’s Vineyard are encouraged to submit poems to Laura Roosevelt at ldroosevelt@gmail.com.
