poetry by j matthew waters

talking to god


grieving ground
trembles and rumbles
children in bare feet
running through the jungle
sometimes smiling
crying
laughing
mourning
learning firsthand
about death
one day at a time

a river runs through
its heart center
a pulsating lifeline
promising something
than mere survival
repetitive
contemplative
remorseful
teaching firsthand
about life
one death at a time




august two thousand nineteen
