Brothers

three little boys

running

across the grass

and through the yard

to grandmother’s house

are out in the open

for the first time

in so very long

free to swordfight

with sticks

and toss around

a deflated ball

blonde hair

streaming behind them

and though i am not

with them

anymore

i still see their innocence

in my mind’s eye

and feel them

in my soul

for the ties of blood

will forever be greater

than the miles

no matter how

far apart

we become.
