poetry by j matthew waters

everywhere to be found

we searched
under rock and earth
and alongside the water’s edge
where the dying winds
welcomed the night

without a trace
you escaped the city
headed for a restless countryside
offering perspective
to tired old bones

in the woods
echoes follow every
footfall and heartbeat and thought
reshaping consciousness
from the very start

signals flare
from rugged elevations
seemingly shooting down stars
much too young to die
let alone live

early morning currents
meander your voice
throughout the valley’s curvatures
barely audible above
forgotten shadows

january two thousand fourteen
