poetry by j matthew waters

standing the test of time

with age comes discovery
rising above the ordinary
whether major or minor
each a treasure in their own right
realized or still transforming

that old familiar friend
advancing its slow approach
as clear as crows flying
along darkened shoreline
cawing in and out of reality

nobody lives to tell the tale
or at least that’s what they say
but truth be told we’re all
remapping chartered territories
and rewriting age-old stories

october two thousand nineteen
