by Michael F Brien


When Winter comes wearing a tear

for all the world knows it is here

the trees, the birds, all life around

know the sorrow that can be found.


The chill of wind, the snow we find

as playthings for the heartless kind

who only know their heart's desires

but do not see all that transpires.


Then in a slowly awakening thrill

we start to hear a small bird's trill

and heralds a new and wondrous thing

The slow beginning of an early Spring.


Leaves appear on naked trees

as if by some on high decree.

New life has started to thrill again

all souls who know the winter pain.

And so another phase has just begun

to follow on like love for one.




On Butterfly's Wings


early poem by Michael Brien


Into my life you came like a dream

your soft dark eyes and lips so sweet

with your long dark hair and skin like cream.

Now with you in my life, it is complete.


Your touch is soft as butterfly's wings

our love is like a raging storm.

My heart doth feel like strumming strings

and I awake to a sharp clear dawn.


Now at last our hearts are free

together we are 'tween earth and sky.

It is me for you and you for me

and on and on our souls will fly.


Where time stands still

we'll abide and reign

beyond the hills

on a verdant plain.

Warm welcome on our site, Michael!

If you have a look under the tab "Who is Who", you will find many more members from Australia!

What kind of artist are you: visual or other? We gladly want to add your name in the right way.

Please, feel free to join one or more groups and to post photos and more. We also appreciate very much a photo in your profile.

Thanks a lot for joining Khetanes!

Have a nice day!

Dear Michael,

Thank you very much for your kind-hearted letter! And sorry for the delay in answering. We had something to celebrate in the family and I am also supporting my son with an important issue. The Khetanes work comes on top, since we are reorganising the site, as you know. We want to establish some core groups, also one about visual art and painting. I really hope you will join that one. If you want to help with the coordination, you are welcome also. We try to document all major achievements in arts and science. That will be like a visitor's card. The other activities will focus on anti-Defamation and Roma rights. We will also do our best to make it easier to find information here on a certain topic: e.g. painting or cinema or music...

Please, comment back if you want to join the (still to be established) painting group, or send an e-mail to Artists_Initiative@ziggo.nl

Very best wishes,

Thank you for the add!  I'm still learning my way around and still figuring out who does what.  So you're the Impressionist (I flunked out of art college and taught myself to paint and I'm sort of stuck with one style, whether it's in oils, watercolors or digital) ....I love your work! 

Pariker tu, phral!
