poetry by j matthew waters

back in the shack

you’ll find it in the middle of somewhere
surrounded by a fog in a field of woods
discoverable through a natural maze
filled with a variety of wildflowers

walking through the door you swear
you became someone other than yourself
and the moment you sit and open your mind
the shack is filled with a beautiful light

march two thousand fifteen

  1. Memory and mystery rolled up in one. Excellent work, J!

  2. To enter that realm behind that door.. I think I want to add some firewood and look into the fire…

  3. LOVE THIS! Have you ever read any of my Last Really Good Shack stories? This is absolutely a perfect description of how that place felt to me – hugs!

  4. So true, an open mind brings things to light ~ we begin to understand & see the beauty within and around us. A lovely poem 🙂

  6. A picnic of ponder, how wonderful.
