poetry by j matthew waters

beautiful like you

it has nothing to do with reflections
in the mirror or the stillness
at the water’s edge
the day’s sunshine nearly even
with the horizon
casting her unpredictable light
every which way
as if trying to be recognized
for the very last time

as always you are attracted
to the light in your eyes
alive like the butterfly
recently released above a field
of burgeoning sunflowers

august two thousand nineteen
