poetry by j matthew waters

blame it on the moon

piano starts to play
something free and easy
your foot begins to tap
one two three
new moon
half moon
blue moon

how you reminisce
when you hear those sounds
barely noticeable
and rising above the trees
late late at night

waking you from sleep
you make your way
from room to room
finally stepping outside

and it is there finally
you capture the light
(or is it the other way around)
and you find comfort in a song
you once knew by heart

may two thousand eighteen
