Premium Member Spiritual Cookery

Spirit and flesh have been boiling together. 
Years of smutch, and oily reduction, 
and each day a thin scum to be skimmed. 

A job for a Chef de Cuisine,
a kitchen phantom 
who though never seen, has been 
keeping the suspension...Read More

Old Damascus Road
On that old Damascus Road,
There’s a story to be told.
I thought I was doing the Father’s will.
I persecuted, bound, and killed.
I heard the voice of Christ, the Lord.
His words pierced me like a sword.
I made my decision to follow Him.

God Still answers Prayer
As we were down in Egypt, in captivity.
Kept by Rameses, we had no liberty.
We prayed for hundreds of years, that God would set us free.
God had sent us Moses; God heard our fervent plea.

God still answers prayer.
God still does care.

From Endemic To Pandemic
From endemic to pandemic

Scattered the crowds who now share the fear
And panic!

No one is spared from the crowd now,
If you cough you are in trouble
If you sneeze in public...Read More

Are We Too Cold To Look Beyond
“Irish I am,” my mam speaks in hushed tones to the air
She questions still, seeming to her alone
Intones, “Ireland, O Ireland, what are you?
Where do you keep yourself, so I may rediscover you?”
Her speech unknown surely to her
Rains down, trickles...Read More

Premium Member God Misplaces Some of the Dead

They were accounted for,
officially dead at least,
but the sickening fact was
that large numbers of the dead
had gone missing.

Occasionally, still pinging cellphones 
were found in Hades, Purgatory, and 
other Bardo states.
Olympus was still drunkenly silent,
as were almost all of the seven...Read More

Last Word by Kuldip Medhi
Met her first 
The meadow stopped 
Behind the mountains 
Benched on the buffalo's back 
A cowherd 
Played a riverine tune 
The bow-shaped river 
Flowed north 
The white yachts 
Were sailing east 
Like the shadow of 
A flight of...Read More

Premium Member Bored President
I once invested a year
as Board President.
Indeed, I was often a bored resident
of our State Affordable Housing Coalition.

My platform,
to speak grandly
of what was more of a healthy whim,
was for safe and beautiful affordable housing

Habitat is not just an optional frosting

The Children
By: Tom Wright

How oft are the children sacrificed
for an unjust cause or belief.
From hunger, with swollen bellies,
they beg for morsels of relief.

Accounted as hostages to grating words
orated by another in haste.
While clay mores relegate playground
to the status of vegetated...Read More

Not for me the modern way to embrace,
Everything and everybody,

To recipients never met,
From cultures unknown,

Is born out of fear,
Pretends to be sympathetic,

If I may, to my fellow would-be poets,

Am of quite a Shakespearean and Miltonian bent:
