poetry by j matthew waters

in search of that which makes you happy

this somewhat elusive euphoria
how it starts and sputters and stops
only to repeat the process
like a solar powered pocket watch
misplaced on second story window sill

yes I know it’s a state of mind
this endless moonlit madness
waking you from self-induced slumber
suggesting you stick around
at least until the morning light

they say the universe does not age
and thrives on creativity
whether practicing inner rhymes
in your very own world
or blasting off into outer unknowns

  1. “elusive euphoria”, you always have such a way with words.

  2. Everything moon and moonlit beckon to me. This is so lovely.

  3. This, to my way of thinking is the epitome of a ‘jdub’ poem. One that makes you feel like you are exploring the universe without a space ship. Love it.

  4. Love this one! I am a big fan of your poetry! Thank you for always visiting my blog. Be well!
