poetry by j matthew waters

in and out of thin air

out of thin air you arrive
like a meadowhawk
in a muted brook
solitarily going about her day

there are no answers here
this much you know
skipping from place to place
your restless soul frozen in time

though your departure
may go unnoticed
mother earth will remember
your presence remains extant

  1. Wondered if this poem was about a bird, a person or a human soul, which would live in the memories of mother nature long after it is gone. Soulful poem and liked the words, ‘muted brook…’
