poetry by j matthew waters

since before the beginning of time

I heard her calling
her original song
had no idea the direction
from which it arrived

this was back when far from blind
when I didn’t need my fingers
to feel every note
staying behind the brush
pretending not to exist

the trees are taller
than they’ve ever been
this I am certain without seeing
and the music from within
I now know by heart
having always been there
since before the beginning of time

august two thousand twenty-one
