poetry by j matthew waters

hunting in the dark

mushrooms are blooming everywhere
and I’ve not yet fallen asleep

it’s intense out in the fields
stars & supersonic sounds concealing
nearly dead brain waves coming back to life

it’s as if you’ve walked through here before
creating space & carving new paths
careful not to disturb the peace

  1. Beautiful poetry! I especially love the first few lines.

  2. Interestingly enough, yesterday I was walking around the property and came upon a lone morel mushroom! It was beautiful and felt meaningful.

  3. This was lovely. Hope you are doing well. Is lockdown over in your place?
