poetry by j matthew waters

the rhyme inside us

wandering through the orchard
I picked a fresh rhyme
held her loosely in my hand

arriving back to the house
I opened my palm
found the rhyme cold and lifeless

rocking her inside my arms
I quietly breathed
healing words into her core

slowly her color returned
her skin unwrinkling
newfound rhythm filled the air

quickly I composed a poem
with water and vase
the rhyme inside blossoming

march two thousand fourteen
