    There is no fear in Love
    It fits us like a glove ~

    Unlike
    Grim Reaper
    My brother's keeper

    An enemy so close
    Wrecking ball
    Black host

    Gotcha...
    New agenda
    Marked return to sender

    Monsieur,
    Excusez-moi
    I take the higher road

    Brother,
    I'm implying
    No more signifying

    Ancestors of old
    Enlightening the fold

    Other than the fighting
    Brothers reuniting
    PEACE

    Brother Poet 1poetsought,

    You know you make a sistah work. Your poems are like brain teasers. By the time I figure them out (and I don't always) I feel all special. (smile)
    Anyway...there's a lot going on in this piece. Each stanza reads like a short documentary, all its own. I love that the last lines:

    "Other than the fighting
    Brothers reuniting
    PEACE"

    are rich with clarity. They bring the poem home for me. "Brothers reuniting" Yes!! Enjoyed reading.

    (smile)

    Every response to this poem has touched me deeply.

    Even those of the silent majority.

    Thank you, all.
