poetry by j matthew waters

an exception to the rule

expectations come and go
reminding me of a recurring reverie
forever leaving the city lights
swinging from tree to tree

search lights work all night long
penetrating the tallest redwoods
hoping to spot a single freckle
darting from bough to bough

natural light outshining
the darkness from within
dual realities secretly merging
thriving from dream to dream

february two thousand twenty
