God Has Held the Reigns
God Has Held the Reigns

God has held the reigns,
While outside the weather rains;
Over us He reigns.

Christ Is World Renown
Christ Is World Renown

We know that Christ is world renown,
And often saw Him  wearing a crown;
Did confide;
Donkey ride,
While he would travel town to town.

Silence Seems So Appaling
Silence Seems So Appalling

During war while bodies were falling,
Silence of death  did seem appalling;
Never known,
And all alone;
Noiseless sound of temptation calling.

Lonely Silence of Age
Lonely Silence of Age

Cannot hear the silence of age;
Open book turn page by page;
Bottom of sea,
Quiet will be;
Of life does exist in each stage.

Such Sassy Trend - Day 27
lips like waves
wielded wounds wave
callous curls hewn
by dark dews
taunted torrent puke
per punctured prune

crazed coziness cluster
felon fondlings fostered
rustic reels registered

heaven's eyes seeped
dripping damped weaves
locked liquid lease

such sassy trend
carved emotions' crest.

Conflicts Face and Fall Into Place
Conflicts Face and Fall Into Place

Conflicts we may often have to face;
Sometimes they  just fall into place;
We expected;
God directed
Thanks to Him and all of His grace.

Use Broom to Sweep Away Doom
Use Broom to Sweep Away Doom

What we did do with a straw broom,
Would be to sweep away our doom,
Which existed,
And persisted,
That was spread all over the room.

PARALLELS LINES


       It's desperate
       compare our love
       as  parallels lines!

Trump Lacks in Competence
Trump Lacks in Competence

Looks like Trump lacks in competence;
All the results on us  has been intense;
Lost his way;
Did go astray,
While we determined that he is dense.

Tasty Taste Trained - Day 25
promiscuous pear prunes
saucy strawberry slew
nosing nimble nude
gaunt gasps grew
lanky lust lurches
outruns vying verge

felon fruits featured
pulse flavors punctured
aiding sassy structure

moaning machine's pleasantries
slays saucy stances
faddy fruits fling

tasty taste trained
clutches emotion's crave.

God Gave Us a Happy Day
God Gave Us a Happy Day

God has given us  a happy day;
In His sight we remain and stay;
Bible study,
With a buddy;
Help for our health to God pray.

Living In Abode and Crisis Mode
Living In Abode and Crisis Mode

While we had lived in our abode,
Country ended up in crisis mode;
Arms flailing;
Health failing;
On our minds has been big load.

Premium Member Sun God
Great fiery orb blazing on high,
Life saviour of the planted seed,
Revered Apollo, whose grace we live by,
Generously befriending us in need.

Gold and crimson in your fearsome glory,
Your chariot by conflagration drawn,
For our fervent hopes the allegory,
Magnificent purveyor of the dawn.

Dark Diminuendo Dribbles - Day 25
lusty leaves wave
rusty rhythm plays
airy accordion pukes
callous concerto's tune
mystic music melt
smothering saucy crest

dark diminuendo dribbles
hoisting hankering wrinkles
seeped'n sassy treble

like tactic tiers
severed syllables smeared
on papyrus's peers

same spell squashes
emotion love lodges.

Rainer Maria Rilke translation: The Panther
The Panther
by Rainer Maria Rilke
loose translation/interpretation by Michael R. Burch

his exhausted eyes see only blank Oblivion.
His world is not our world. It has no stars.
No light. Ten thousand bars. Nothing beyond.

Mystic Emotions Metamorphose - Day 24
moaning rhythm reels
vying voluptuous creed
seeped'n saucy jazz
callous concerto spanked
saucy saline liquid 
dribbling dark fiddles

tactic tune birthed
lusting after lurch
breeding bounty verge

felon feelings perceived
rusty rhythm's relief
fostering fondling fills

mystic emotions metamorphose
lofty love bought.
