poetry by j matthew waters

as if silence could breathe

in the darkroom
he could see independently
gradually bringing the past into focus

how those snippets near and far
are but a mirror for the soul
artistically developed
rinsed with a touch of reality
and hung under safelights

it was easy letting go
once able to stand on his own
composite prints defining himself
one eye-opening exposure at a time

october two thousand eighteen
