poetry by j matthew waters

building blocks and dreams


we worked the wet sand
into old world castles
restarting aqueducts and
protecting the bridge with
toy soldiers

overnight tides washed
away recent memory
giving way to daybreak
and the innocence of
virgin beaches

starting from scratch
we sawed and
sanded and hammered away
convincing ourselves
things will be different


december two thousand thirteen

    Hmmm… this one reminds of a lyric from a gospel song, “we fall down… but we get up.” Cool.
