Premium Member My Brother

	gasp for breath

vessels of poetry

pain disappears
	tears recede

love floats above the sea
	tides of sadness

	planted in marshlands

	friendship bloomed

living for words
	no longer matters

I embrace my brother
	love his might

The rain set me adrift inside a dream
My mind was on a painting miles upstream
An unforgotten "en plein" I once viewed
A light pastoral springtime interlude

The sound of chain-saws in the field 
has scattered birds and stirred unrest
The men are young, these shirtless guests,
with bodies glazed in summer sweat.

First sound is a blank scream
Against sorrow's hidden portends of strifes
All we know are mirages and dream.
