poetry by j matthew waters

outside my window


peering out my window
clouds gather around
and darken
a once promising
bright day

blackbirds circle above
slowly descending
and squawking
instinctively finding
shelter

thunder murmurs and moans
and i close my eyes
suppressing
a distant memory
knocking

once the showers arrive
i gaze past the pane
your image
refreshing like the rain
falling



december two thousand twelve

  1. beautiful poem, evokes deep emotions. I like the development of the storm into rain and the story weaved in between.

  2. Isn’t playing with words magical? It’s as refreshing as your imagination and talent!
