My Brother

I kept telling her that everything was fine, and
he’s getting along well.
She believed me, perhaps, but I didn’t.

One day, the weather wasn’t good.
Wind and rain visited together our town and the woods nearby.
We heard them run and screech and howl,
all through the night.

In the morning, the lake, which is the splendour of our town, looked wretched
as many of her companion trees encircling her had fallen down.

A little later he told us that
he’s not able to harmonize his dreams and feelings
with our interpretation of the world.

He quit once again.
