poetry by j matthew waters

and then we laughed like nothing had ever happened


they swept in from the northwest
just as the dipper came into focus
wings spread wide and soaring
revealing ever brighter lights

they relaxed their claws
releasing scarlet and golden petals
falling like confetti
drifting and fading
manipulated by a friendly wind
whistling and
whispering

I heard from an old friend
there is still magic in the skies
and if you give yourself plenty of time
it will one day make you cry


may two thousand sixteen

  1. I feel that I should refrain from looking at the sky.
