Hidden Paradise
(Dedicated to Toni Marie Labadie.)

A little Tahiti
in our hearts abides
where you and I
love through the tides

Wherever we go
it's always there
under weeping willow
above solar flare

Yes, life is simpler
when I keep this in view:
My troubles aren't insular
My peace is from you...Read More

Protection's what it's all...Read More

Angelus Silesius Translations

The rose merely blossoms
and never asks why:
heedless of her beauty,
careless of every eye.
?Angelus Silesius, loose translation by Michael R. Burch

Premium Member December's Swan Song
December's here to end
another grand old year
bringing us happiness,
celebrating her reign-
filling the final days
with holiday magic.

Old turns into new-
time to disappear,
gifting a present
of seasonal joys
in holiday love.

Now a new year
says it is time-
yet sad to go,
to bid adieu.

Thus journeys extrapolate need
In the frontiers of buoyant ignorance
Where plain common sense
Is not even now a valid algorithm
In this paradoxical strangeness 
There abides a sudden shifting posture
Or vain exuberance in careless sojourns
Beyond artistry and sensible fantasy

Love your brother ALWAYS

If you are older, hold your brother’s hand;
If you’re the same age as he;
Stay within his and God’s plans
Allow him a hand to hold, 
a shoulder to lean on, 
And an ear to listen.
