poetry by j matthew waters

spare time compulsions

there was a time I thought I wasn’t going anywhere
even when traveling across the country
searching for a better place

the good news is pretty red roses always stay pretty
even after morning dew turns to frost
november days fading fast

passion and introspection complement the dying
their mystery moon burning bright
unnoticed by the living

november two thousand eighteen
