My Brother's Birdfeeder

A new cedar birdfeeder
made with love
filled with songbird feed
to attract the higher echelon of birds
Breakfast on the porch
hoping to glimpse
their glory
Only to be met with
their shyness
peeking from the opposite side

A Brother's Love

Seventeen years
Separate our births
A twenty year lapse
And 900 traveled miles
Across the desert
Reunited us
Brother in my Father's role
Stepped back into
My brother's role
Showered with gifts
Of his hands
Working with wood
Resurrecting my little
Rocking chair
And family stories
Entertaining and filling me
With treasured tales
Holding my brother's love
Close to heart
