poetry by j matthew waters

attracting butterflies

how the garden grows
in my absence

photos clicked and sent
my way via
short message service

I don’t own a device
but I can still receive

be they still or moving
or downright blossoming
it matters not

I like the bleeding hearts best
almost always first
or second to arrive
depending upon the winter

I promise I’ll be back soon
it’s only temporary
where I’ve been
or where I’m going

if memory serves me right
the tulips will be next

april two thousand nineteen
