Fearless Poetry Reading Challenge

I’m signing up for this challenge organized by Savvy Verse & Wit.  I read poetry but have a really hard time writing about it and hope this “poetry exploration” will help change that.

I love poetry in translation.  This is from PoetryTranslation.org.

Crossing

by Abdullah al Ryami

The storm that meets
nothing in its path
dies.
And short sentences
are the best way
of crossing oceans.
