I dislike litterers
I dislike litterers
I see them, the cow-like chewers
Always spilling and always littering
How can these large lifers be so reckless
The environment is helpless
I see them smear the earth
They are guilty of chocking their own breathe
They are litterbugs that deserve a nosebag

Pink dawn-will reward with a smile. 
The fog creeps-a pocket of cheerfulness . 
Frost on the cheeks-youth balm , 
A hot summer day will set you up for a romance. 

You walk along the Avenue, and there is spring,

100 seconds to midnight
An endangered species, living on a ledge,
100 seconds to Midnight, then over the edge,
Nearest to Doomsday, humans have ever been,
Vaporised! inside mushrooms of boiling hot steam.

Casually go about our business, without a care,
While the Sword of Damocles, hangs in the...Read More

Mother Nature's Early Menopause

We forced her into menopause way before her time 
Prematurely Mother Nature’s in menopause
and we’ll regret of our crime.
We cut off her tresses that once bushed across her land 
Polluted her oceans and soiled her golden sand.
Moody and unpredictable her...Read More

Dude, you shoulda seen us.

A Mother's Cry
Why, oh why can't I deny
That the ones I love
Are causing my soul's hope to die,

But will you ever see it from my point of view
Or will you always consider my treasures
Were stored up for your constant abuse,

I graced your...Read More

Premium Member A Climate of Integration
religious and secular,
extended families,
property owners,
owned properties
are caught in,
invested in,
an inescapable network
of climate mutuality,
multicultural communion,
camouflaged in a single Earth habitat
of green-blue spectral destiny

Climate injustice anywhere
is a threat to health
and justice
and peace

There are some climates
in our social
economic racist system
to which all EarthDwellers

I stand on top of the mountain gazing over the horizon
Looking at the clouds rolling by with a message wrapped up in the sky. The message is subtle, the message is brief,
The message is in the final decree

On the slice, few foods in life can taste better
Until the medical profession gives us a stark warning
It is no good for the heart and blood vessels

Hunger and roses

False pride and old people thinking of was time
When they said, saved the world single handily
The arrogance of superiority is unavoidable.

Empty Glass 

The house is empty. 
The dogs...
are barking again. 
This happens, 

It is left hanging there, 
for a reason. 
The word...
Says little and less, 
when I have run out of breath, 
to speak words that make sense. 
Nothing is...Read More

For the earth giveth
Dead wood for bed
Withered cotton for a mattress
I don’t pluck fruits
I gather them ripe from the ground
A tasty tuber protrudes
With delight I up root it
Cobwebs hang in my ceiling
Ant routes run up and down my floor
Dry grass for a roof

Davenport Tomorrow
Davenport Tomorrow
by Michael R. Burch

Davenport tomorrow ...
all the trees stand stark-naked in the sun.

Now it is always summer
and the bees buzz in cesspools,
adapted to a new life.

There are no flowers,
but the weeds, being hardier,
have survived.

The small town has become
a city...Read More

Military service (compulsory) 
Stationed at a camp
The discipline, not too tough unless you had never done up your bed.
They gave us some old German rifle not
Shooting anyone, but for training.
I liked to go guard duty patrolling the perimeter

Holistic position
simultaneously invites further co-passion
and celebrates having become ever more compassionate,

Inspired that Earth stewards hope to rightly balance
human relationships
with our wider ecological responsibilities.

These right relationships
and EarthCentered responsibilities
need not compete
with more anthropocentric views
of care-giving and -receiving rights
within theologically reasoned
and sensed,
thought and...Read More

sea and people
Sea and people
An island came up from under the sea
And soon it became green and pleasant
Fit for dairy production, and cats that
Took care of the rat plague.

Man, and animals in idyllic harmony but
For the rats and attacking seas-birds.

Roaring sea appropriated...Read More

a dreamy journey
A dreaming journeys
  A leaf floats down a river

No, I have been there now
We are going to the future.
From afar the leaf hear
a woman sings
