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

  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?

  4. Undoubtedly beautiful piece! Stay safe and keep writing.
