I'm 10

My name is josh
And I'm 10
It took me some time
To reach this age
But here I am
And to me that's
A pretty big deal
Now that I'm 10
The world as I knew it
From ages 1 thru 9
Has changed
Now I'm a big boy
Mommies baby

Premium Member The Virus Is Us
A fiesty Zen priest recently told me,
"Earth's most toxic virus is humanity".
Riding on this muddy blue ball so lush
could we only be a bit of carbon slush?
A tiny blink, a galactic tale untold

A Glow of Suspense
Lays in ambush like a gust of holy winds,
Drooping every stripes of emotion over the stream of hope:
When love is routed on the bases of soul, its flame becomes unquenchable 
And such cybernetic mechanism that often dictates the path to...Read More

What Death Denies
The artist dies again and again,
but his art does not

Bringing new life to the ages,
turning his back on time

The artist cannot last, 
but his genius can

 Living inside the spirit 
—of what death denies

I Shall Not Judge
I shall not abandon you as your body dies
but pray instead for your tortured soul
God shall judge you before the end 
your conscience burdened with battle dead
may angels guide you on your way
as you travel alone by close of day

In My Dream
In My Dream

I could twirl around,
Climb the highest mound,
As a setting sun would show,
No one would ever know,
About a pretty silhouette,
Doing the perfect pirouette,
Behind her as the sum dims,
Climb higher the moon beams,
Twilight soon sets in,
The stars all twinkling,
As I...Read More

Bad days
A smiling moon is a heart's desire,
But eclipses are what make it worth,
O forlorn night why do you despite,
Your deepest sorrow is preetiest attire.
A wintery apple is an eyes appeal,
But fiery sun makes it ripe,
O motherly tree why don't you...Read More

COVID-19 And Us
It used to twitter before though it was never descried,
It used to fly before though it was never recognised, 
Today it trills and is heard as well,
Heedlessly it soars through the sky where merrily it dwells.

Before The Gates Of Alahsar - Version - 2- 21
On the top of the wall,
expectant faces, watching,
the strange guests, they did wish to see,
Now, the upward road lined with people,
From the golden gates, upwards, 
hundreds did line the way.
Murmurs went up and down the lines of people.
cheers and clapping...Read More

Before The Gates Of Alahsar - Version - 2- 19
The ceremonial guard,
in splendour, they gallop across Badicha,
the people atop the walls loudly cheer,
the knights regaled in shining armour,
they ride so proud,
the cheering does quickly desist,
they now watch the Dark man and Turvehr.
The Dark man and Turvehr, 
they are a...Read More

Gnomic Thoughts Of Existence
In the world of gloom and negativity, 
Like the shadows of guilt, evil is lucid, 
And glasses of truth is shattered 
Like drops of gore on a deathly desert. 

The good old days will never return
For long gone they are...Read More

Killing in the name of

Stretched to the limit,
past breaking point,
On the torturers rack,
bones popping out of joint,
Gone too far already,
sinews and tendons tear,
Now the skin is breaking,
blood spurts into open air 

All this suffering, to get a
forced confession,
At the mercy of an inquisitors,
demonic obsession,
You...Read More

The very first time
my mother's healing touch
tapped my forehead,
I felt God's travelled down
here in this peculiar earth
to heal me up from the fever.
A sunken soul released out of me,
turned as rejuvenated as a fresh lemon leaf
and I touched the toes...Read More

I had a thought a moment ago, just before I broke your aura'd wing,

Torches Rage
The past is but a distant flame,
with reasons there disowned

Where fire burns in effigy,
to singe that falsely known

The ages but a candle dim,
its wick burned to the quick

As torches rage from deep within
—all time a kindling stick

Holocaust Poem: 93 Daughters of Israel
Ninety-Three Daughters of Israel
a Holocaust poem by Chaya Feldman
loose translation/interpretation by Michael R. Burch

We washed our bodies
and cleansed ourselves;
we purified our souls
and became clean.

Death does not terrify us;
we are ready to confront him.

While alive we served God

You were in deep love with each other
Life seems to be too short then
Time was flying fast
You wanted extra ages from GOD to enjoy more of love

Soul Of Stone
I've cried for 10,000 years.
I let all these fears get under my skin.
And they've made it dark within me.
Hesitant to ask you once or twice for advice.
Though you'd leave me cold as ice.
It's not clear for you to see.

That I...Read More

Life cannot all happy be
in life there will be misery
So cry that cry you hold inside
and through time it will abide
Remember happiness a plenty
in those times there isn't any
And as the ages show
everyone has pain to sow
