poetry by j matthew waters

the start of the ending

late night & new corner location
working on an old story with little light
this shadow in my periphery
moves from chair to chair
in the darkened dining room

scattered words stray near & far
I bring them back into the fold
rearrange them in the open field
pretending the start of the ending
will be different next time

  1. Enjoying my visit to your land of words this evening 🙂

    Especially loving this poem. The second stanza is fabulous… could stand on it’s own.
