poetry by j matthew waters

by the time spring arrived reality set in


the king’s inner circle sent away men on horseback
to sow the seeds of forgiveness

it was the first of its kind and unbiased officials say
they are planting courageous ideas

before winter set in the horsemen sought comfort
slightly below the earth’s surface
solving religious conflict through peaceful uprisings



april two thousand seventeen

  1. Oh Damn! We are going to do it all again, aren’t we!

  2. Your poetry is SO cool, John. You always give away just enough to make me want to smack you in the face and demand more. 😛

    I love the images I get from this:
    “the horsemen sought comfort
    slightly below the earth’s surface”

  3. “unbiased officials” lol.
