poetry by j matthew waters


the little ones walked
along the shore
hand in hand
breathing in the heavenly air
created from a soft breeze
rolling in from the tide

without supervision
they are left
alone on the path
of safety and knowledge
hopeful the answers exist
beyond the distant light

december two thousand twelve
