poetry by j matthew waters

little lambs on the run

we pushed through the crowds
on a sunday morning
parting the layers of worshipers
basking in the sunlight
hoping for a final glimpse
what may lay on the other side

a scattering of us lived on
forever hand in hand
snaking through the spirited mob
as if we always existed
intention in our eyes
and redemption in our hearts

    Gorgeous. A pleasure to read aloud.

    I like reading “lambs” as “lamps.” This little light of mine. Less sacrificial. Or is it more? Depends I suppose.
