Idioms of Tranquility

I wish we were
Stirring upon the refuge
once was profound
Seeking a revolution
of inner selfness
Today as if any,
to breach the truth
Twisting the soul
of my tranquil life
Proves without a doubt
that a soul does abide
Within the reaches of my modern search
It has to exist,
for there is no other explanation

This poem written by my brother in less than 10 minutes and entered into a poetry contest as a joke and not only won but is published in the Library of Congress, reference number above. He read this poem at a poetry reading and people argued over what he meant by these words. He laughed as he told me that they came and he wrote them down to prove a point, who knows what they mean? It was a joke to show someone how easy it is for me to write. I had no intention of winning so, it’s a waste of time to try and figure out what they mean. I wake up with words in my mind, so I write them down. That’s no big secret.

For me here lie the gifts of my brother Danny. A gifted guitarist auditioned for the punk rock band Limp Bizkit, when he turned 40 just to prove to himself that he could do it. I can’t wait to see what 50 brings! I come from a family of a gifted artists, and creatives!

I love you Danny.
Your big sis’
