poetry by j matthew waters

Forever in a Day

Fast asleep by midmorning
I dream of never waking
of sailing past an open sea

My shell is like a water vessel
blending into the horizon
melting into a fiery sun

Transforming into nature
I stay awake forever
casting hope into a dark night

april two thousand twelve
