poetry by j matthew waters

returning to the beginning

the garden
the aroma & beauty
opening your arms for me
smiling & inviting
I believe I’ve seen you before
I swear I have

maybe because
I was born
or abandoned here
and you took me in
turning my skin brown
by working the earth
teaching me how to love

it’s been too long
a lifetime maybe
the most powerful winds
bringing me back home
back into your fold
your aroma & beauty
slowing fading
into sweet november

october two thousand twenty
