poetry by j matthew waters

over the course of time

one day the wind blew the sun away
and suddenly
there was no more living in the shadows

you can’t catch the wind with your hands
but you can always catch your breath

nobody expected a sandstorm
in the middle of winter
but then again we live in interesting times

of course the sun never really went away
she was merely waiting in the wings

as for the bitter arctic winds
they’re bound and determined to return again

january two thousand nineteen
