Brother Sonnet

Like a stone thou lay'th in thy heart, heavily

Living in the shadow of thy mind's eye

Immovable, thou weighted memory

My sad recall thee refute and belie


Thou art as a jewel filled river bed

The dappled sunlight magnifies thou's worth

Though fleeting is the sun, I have not dread

Thou's place in sweet memory doth preserve


But, thou too elicit volcanic thoughts

A rage o' fire and brimstone buried deep;

And my despairs crushing mass, thee contorts.

Though thine eyes doth seep, brother, thou's gemstone I reap


For thy tear, is a diamond of thee;

And thus, forever precious thou shall be
