poetry by j matthew waters

to catch a glimpse of harmony

I may not know
exactly who I am
but like the bluebird
in your heart
I’ve a good idea
who I am not

people feel compelled
to define you
without a true source
saying you are this
or you are that
adding to the confusion

all I’m saying is we
should be friends
whether you be as near
as kalamazoo
or as far away
as timbuktu

if I owned the night
I would gladly
hand it over
along with all the lights
that shine
forever in the sky

    I love the first two stanzas, especially the lines about the bluebird.

    This made me cry. It is so romantic as to fill me full of wishes and to sigh!
