Time has endless Patience
There from the start
There too, 'twill be, at the end
  when all else departs

Time's a humbler of Empires
Outlasts them all
Watches monuments crumble
  no matter how solid
  no matter how tall

The glory that was Greece

there was no one else to interrupt our silence.

Premium Member If You Don't Want Your Money
Very rarely will you ever see,
anyone who hates money more than yours truly.
"Well, If you don't want your money,"
they say to me constantly,
"you can always give it to me."
They don't even hear themselves sadly,
not realizing that money, are the chains...Read More

Premium Member ABYSMAL CLOWN


disguised tears of a clown
smile turned to wretched frown
behind makeup his eyes glazed over
at the sight of daisies and smell of clover
in summer fields last saw his love
flew off to heaven she gentle dove
his heart in pieces shattered

Just Passing Through
Bang! Bang! Bang! 
The sound of gun shots echoing in the air
Shattering windows and, smashing glasses 
Sending people pouring out in the street
Gun shots penetrating the clouds 
With a message that is very loud

People are running and screaming around

Chaucer translation: Merciless Beauty
Merciles Beaute ("Merciless Beauty")
by Geoffrey Chaucer
loose translation/interpretation by Michael R. Burch

Your eyes slay me suddenly;
their beauty I cannot sustain,
they wound me so, through my heart keen.

Unless your words heal me hastily,
my heart's wound will remain green;
for your eyes slay me...Read More

they hide way up inside your ceiling

Premium Member UNTOLD TRUTHS

SECRETS, ARE REALLY TRUTHS
DELIBERATELY NEVER TOLD.
OFTEN DISAPPEARING
BUT NEVER DIE OF GROWING OLD.

LEGENDS ARE RESURRECTED
AND PASSED ALONG WITH TIME.
OFTEN REAPPEARING, IN VERSE
AND SOMETIMES RHYME.

LIES ARE REALLY COVER UPS
OF WHAT THE TRUTH'S ABOUT.
PURSUED BY "THE" TRUTH SEEKERS
THE REST ARE LEFT TO DOUBT.

In February
Illnesses besetting
Parents aging
Chilled waves of anxiety
     buffet the shore
Thunderclouds dampening
     soil and spirits
Cellos, subdued in minor sonority
     play Eleanor Rigby in my mind
Painted ponies gnashing

Premium Member MY ARROGANT LITTLE FRIEND PART II
You should be respectful to women,
and their feelings to.
You don't know how they've suffered,
or what they've been through.

If you still think you're great,
and not alone.
Come back to my stoop,
and give it a troll.

I've read your work,
you shouldn't berate.
Go back to...Read More

Premium Member Not Loved Anymore
I am not loved anymore.
After so many years.
It ended, how, I'm not sure.
Time of sorrow and tears.

I am not loved anymore.
A loss that devastated me.
A pain not felt before.
I saw what I didn't want to see.

I am not loved anymore.

It is high time we gave credit
To those men who are not violent to women and other men.
To those men who turn away from hate and self pity.
To those men who have died trying to protect women.

Take a Leap
Sometimes spontaneity is the best,
For your entree into a particular quest

Too much thinking holds you back,
So does confidence if it is lacked

Is it fear that overrides a yes,
Or that we won’t do our best

So often the delay,
Is procrastination in a...Read More

Impending doom, if warning comes before destruction;
When is it the last warning toll?
Darkness leads the night
Impending doom, if warning comes before destruction;
When your texting and walking
Watch out for the curb and stop light

You envision the spoon in the pot;

Change
Change is hard for everyone,
But attitude helps you overcome 

The hesitation to try something new,
Because of a positive  “can do”

Erases the doubt,
And gives you clout

To accept a new challenge,
Perhaps learn a new talent

Or change with the times,
Leaving the past...Read More

Choices
Our life is defined by choices,
Improved by the ones avoided 

Each day making me,
I want to believe 

But what if I had chosen differently,
I wonder what would have become of me

How much of me would be the same,
Or would I...Read More

Peace of Mind
Where do you find, 
Peace of mind

Is it a physical place you go,
Hidden from everyone you know

Or a place you visit in your head,
Maybe a quiet space instead

To collect your thoughts,
Or strategize the battles to be fought 

Is it to...Read More

This repeats
So the teacher often repeats
What will be on the test,
What will be on the test!
And the learner needs to repeat the lesson
Repeat the lesson at hand.
And then it helps
It helps a lot for the learner to be the teacher,

Through Christ Comes The Victory
Across the row, across the aisle
I look at you, you look at me
A dawdling look, the faintest smile
It’s there but should not be

To think that I could sing
An aubade to a time long past
