poetry by j matthew waters

eternity’s breath

waxing gibbous on chilly night
reddish-orange and
taking center stage
her breath barely visible
to the naked eye

december sun is never overrated
though at times plays second fiddle to
low-lying celestial occurrences
you swear you should be able to touch

flashing satellites mimic wishes
made every single night
like lost thoughts in the northern sky
they fade and brighten

september two thousand seventeen
