poetry by j matthew waters

first impressions

I wanted to write something
something simple yet prophetic
or down to earth
with incredible feeling

I wanted to dazzle you with grace
and humility
bringing forth clarity as to
why the sky is not the limit
and perfection is always near

I wanted to leave you pondering
asking for more
offering counterintuitive
ideas to ordinary notions
by the simple act of breathing

may two thousand sixteen
