poetry by j matthew waters

understanding the seen and unseen

there exists a presence always felt
but never seen
like an invincible god showering
the northern sky with constant light

fallen stars awaken from beneath the earth
moving northward along the shoreline
garnering strength along the way
taking on new shapes and sizes
first crawling
then swimming
eventually flying beyond
the house of the clouds

multitudes from all corners gather round
marveling at the aural phenomenon
praying for the prophets
and the preachers
to return to the land
so that they may understand
exactly what is happening

april two thousand fifteen
