Istanbul scene from Golden Horn, pentax k10d

“There is something
something urgent
I have to say to you
and you alone
but it must wait
while I drink in
the joy of your approach,
perhaps for the last time.”

William Carlos Williams


William Carlos Williams , was an American poet closely associated with modernism and Imagism. He was also a pediatrician and general practitioner of medicine. Williams “worked harder at being a writer than he did at being a physician,” wrote biographer Linda Wagner-Martin. During his long lifetime, Williams excelled both as a poet and a physician.
