poetry by j matthew waters

oracle of antiquity


she believes in blue skies
and the power of silence
alone in her thoughts
moonshine above shoreline

she believes in pure magic
supernatural abilities
coursing through her veins
flying past her fingertips

above and beyond all else
she believes in herself
reborn from relics of a past
fashioned via retrospection

    Brilliant poem.

    Your subtle rhyme scheme makes this such a pleasure to read aloud: antiquity/believes, skies/silence/moonshine, magic/supernatural, else/herself, past/fashioned. Reading it is like riding waves, which makes me think this poem could be about the ocean herself. I love imagining the Ocean Goddess drinking moonshine. 🙂

    I love this girl.
