Raccoon Tales ~ Of siblings

IMG-20200621-WA0002

 

We walked rooftops together

Up through chimneys on songs of the day,

Vivid flights of imaginings

Of fanciful worlds, of flagrant display.

 

You followed me like a lamb,

Tasted Earthworms, while idly curious.

I spoke of the sun, Perseus, Medusa,

Of constellations, the Zodiac … Sirius.

 

You doodled;  even the walls were a canvas

Unfinished drawings of things  atrociously funny.

And I made you laugh and cry too

Brother, sister, friends forever through bitter and honey.

 

~ For my brother, the doodler
