poetry by j matthew waters

psychic connections notwithstanding

there are countless stars on the vaulted ceiling
visible only on cloudless nights

although unnoticeable to the naked eye
planets orbit each and every one of them

I often find myself lying down and pointing upwards
giving them names
and pondering
which ones are more likely to support life
as we know it

unlike this place I call home
none of these apples are at war with themselves
which is why I easily connect with them
as a most welcomed alien

may two thousand nineteen

    Wonderful poem, John- made me want to go look at the night sky and ponder.

  2. Just brilliant and I loved the closing lines
