Surprise Haiku [draft 2]

Spring sun traces sky
groups of brothers find others
repeating patterns.

Understand brothers
fishing in flooded rivers
form dangerous bonds.

Running down hot roads
Locust songs reverberate
screaming "ah la la."

Placing worms on hooks
fish circle inside white buckets
discovering life.

Rap session fire lit
Yellow light fights back black night
Please don’t let it end.
Interrupted dreams:
Alcohol, women, war, drugs.
Mom and Dad aren’t here. 
Sometimes brothers drift
yellow autumn leaf swirling
amidst river currents.
Ending winter cold
memories warming swirling
life finding brothers.

 A second draft still a work in progress.  I plan to submit Here.  Leave a comment and let me know your thoughts.
