VISITING MY FATHER By William Michaelian The south wind rises stirs leaves among Fresno graves I am reminded of past storms ruined raisins the two of us walking through muddy fields bending over trays stuck to the ground in perfect rotting rows father and son using simple words to express amazement hide disappointment convince ourselves next year will be better -- Several of William Michaelian's poems and short stories have appeared in Ararat. Many have also been translated into Armenian, and have been published in Yerevan in Garun, Grakan Tert, Aghpyur, and Artasamanyan Grakanutyun.
