poetry by j matthew waters

an exercise of the least possible

I’ve been keeping my thoughts
to the slightest of late
hoping to quiet my outer space
while improving the blood flow
giving my inner self a break
from all the distractions
coming at me from all directions

I keep waiting on the chance
for the sun to sing me a new song
one allowing my mind
to retreat into relative ease
keeping my intentions at bay
and my heart center
beating at a bare minimum

march two thousand nineteen

  1. Seriously, I could read your poetry all day (but spring cleaning is necessary) 🙂
