poetry by j matthew waters

the art of generosity

for some reason I’m waiting
waiting on sunday
for a pause in my thoughts
or walk through the park
waiting on someone
to give me the time of day

daylight no longer diminishing
the law of returns
slowly reverses course
inspiring generosity to the many
and giving hope to those
who need it most

I find myself kneeling
without any specific reason
giving thanks for tomorrow
and thinking of others
waiting for their next sunrise
whether apparent or not
