poetry by j matthew waters

when stars die

billions of stars
drawing a map
across time

adrift in an
endless quest for
intelligent life

setting suns
give birth
to new moons

new life spawns
deep inside
planetary waters

august two thousand thirteen

    Nice one. I always wonder if there’s really other lifeforms out in space somewhere…

  4. I am so amazed. Your mind had traveled that far with no limit. I often watch the sky with full of stars but always wondering which one I have to go to.

  5. I think this is my favorite of your poems. Nicely done!
