An accomplished wordsmith with an ear for the rhythmic cadence of words Jul 8, 2007
"The Weather of Dreams" offers appreciative readers the debut compilation of the free verse poetry of writer and visual artist J. E. Pitts. An accomplished wordsmith with an ear for the rhythmic cadence of words, Pitts' poetry is especially recommended to those who appreciate the hard work that goes into (and is essential for) the intelligible written word. 'In The Field': the orb, that summer sun,/swings over us like a/sickle shaving young wheat./Bringing out the rows,/going down the line,/coming back to double-check./Snapping and pulling,/checking for spots,/taking the good,/the manageable,/leaving the seconds and the poor./Filling the baskets and buckets to/go into the pantry for winter,/gearing up for the time/when it will all go bad.

This is the first book of poetry by J. E. Pitts, the Poetry Editor of The Oxford American and co-editor of the experimental literary journal VOX. Early reviewers have already said this is the best first book of poetry they have read in quite some time.
