poetry by j matthew waters

ripple effect

I last saw you the 5th of May
a date etched on my mind
not a day goes by
I virtually wander the shoreline
kicking up dust and skipping
thoughts once set in stone

it’s evening time but there is no sun
no wind or rain or moon
I walk the trail around the pond
flat blue jewel clenched in my hand
wondering what on earth is
making the water ripple

june two thousand eighteen
