poetry by j matthew waters

seeking perfection from within


there is nothing new under the sun
though I continue to search for the
glory of the coming of perfection

throughout the journey there are
wind chimes offering clues where
perfection may be resting
wind chimes made from bamboo to glass
from copper to crystal to sterling silver

the wind will you show the way
is what I thought they conveyed
but it was the nearby stream
that actually whispered to me

do not be lonely here on this earth
is what I thought I heard between
the chimes and the water’s flow
do not be sad the voice went on to say
for you see
the perfection you seek
can be found
by simply closing your eyes
