poetry by j matthew waters

generations reborn

fire was in order
to control the weeds
little did they know roots
have an empire of their own
conspiring below the surface

earth-shaking machines
pounded past the concrete
instantly peeling back
layers of history that took
centuries to build

civilizations clash
before our very eyes
whether on this continent
or another planet
certain to be conquered

arms races don’t exist
where love has taken hold
where destructive forces
so very long ago
descended into the sheen

march two thousand sixteen

  1. I am enjoying your writing very much!

  2. I have great hope for roots… much like a dandelion breaking through concrete.
