poetry by j matthew waters

at one with the earth

they huddle around the fire
the little ones in front
wrapped in animal hides
and mesmerized by the flames

black and bedazzled
is the sky
exhalations of storytellers
reading from unwritten books

soundless nights accentuate
the reality of dreams
projecting and protecting
the history of a people
at one with the earth

december two thousand sixteen

  2. I like when you write about dreams. I dream often and I don’t write them down nearly enough
