Shalom My Brothers


Brothers don’t follow me!
I’m like vapour rolling on the sea
Longing to roll down a stain glass window
Staining everything I see lest I forgo…

Everything I touch is prone to mould
Young boys return home!
Brothers I’m rotten to the core be told.
Now go my brothers - shalom.

And do not follow me!
Lest I forget who, I really, am.
Brothers; please stay and referee
Your Mothers and fathers and take your exam.

Shalom - go now my brothers - shalom.
And let this poor wandering gypsy roam
Maybe one day I’ll return home
But just for now brothers - shalom.

Peace, be with you, I need to go…
Brothers be told, I don’t know who I am
And till I know I’ll just say - shalom.
Peace, be with you, I need to go.

Like the foam on the sea
I reach for a shore in me
I’m yet to define until I depart
Until then I’ll segment my heart.

And peal it like a clementine
Soak it deep in red wine.
Peace, be with you, I need to go…
Shalom my brothers I know where I don’t belong.

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

Black is the beauty of the brightest day,
The golden belle of heaven's eternal fire,
That danced with glory on the silver waves,
Now wants the fuel that inflamed his beams:
