poetry by j matthew waters

business as usual

I’ve neglected my hummingbird friends
far too long but through no fault of my own
oh how they must be a forgiving sort
returning once finding me back on my feet

it’s true the natural nectar may have been
decimated by the wicked wicked winds
but now there is sunlight to be found
between blinking eyes & barren ground

it’s true the landscape is ever changing
leading us to say we live in interesting times
though matter of factly it’s business as usual
reaching out & routinely replenishing

august two thousand twenty
