poetry by j matthew waters

Planting seeds in 1967

I’ve always wanted to write a poem
about strawberry fields
having memorized the very idea
via a Lennon slash Beatles song

I remember saying we should
plant some strawberries
many miles away
allowing them to blossom
a far cry from the city lights

[And that is what we did
so many moons ago]

Eventually we’ll lose our way
in the end holding hands
finding comfort knowing
those forever promises
became strawberry fields

june two thousand nineteen
