poetry by j matthew waters

white lantern

how do I go from here
now that the waxing gibbous
is nearly full
stealing my thoughts
and making me motionless

she is a glorious pale melon
rising above the whiteness
that is winter
saying look at me look at me
I am as cold as cold can be

bright like a lantern
on a visibly cloudless night
she exposes my
somber & aimless thoughts
my body warm & spellbound

january two thousand twenty-one

  1. When I am out taking photos of the moon… I’m freezing, even though I’m bundled up… but it’s so worth it. Special moments to cherish.
