My Brother

I walked out my door
to the pond and made
ripples in the water
Velvet swallows cried
out the pain I felt
My brother’s whisper
was still with me
Wind whirled around me
and my sigh was quiet
I thought I’d be going
to heaven that moment
to be with my brother
But instead it snowed and I
closed my eyes and walked
back toward the door sadly.
