Old Men
Old men 
Gathered in the shade,
Reclining on wicker chairs
Loosen their collars,
Recall their days of youth,
Puff at their cigars,
Steady their pipes,
Laugh at their silly acts,
Glad they could do that.
Tease or be teased,
Either way, 
They were a fair game then,
Now they do...Read More

OY YO
The opposite of OY is YO,
Two words that most New Yorkers know
And people ‘cross the globe as well,
Though what they mean, not all can tell.

So I’ll explain: the term “Oy vey”
Expresses “Woe is me!” dismay
Or “Oh, my goodness!” or “Good...Read More

No Mark
No Mark
by Michael R. Burch

A wave implodes, 
impaled upon
impassive rocks...

this evening
the thunder of the sea
is a wild music filling my ear...

you are leaving
and the ungrieving
winds demur...

telling me
that nothing returns
as it was before...

here where you have left no mark
upon this dark
Heraclitean...Read More

I AM NO SAINT
I AM NO SAINT

I AREN'T NO SAINT
NOT A DEMON EITHER
I KNOW MY PAINS
AND KNOW MY GAINS
CALL IT CRIMES
I CALL IT MY RHYMES
I FORGIVE MYSELF OF MY PAST
IF YOU LIKE BE THE LAST
IF MY BEING LAZY DRIVES YOU CRAZY
THAT'S YOUR RACE...Read More

Beloved Lord Jesus
Beloved Lord Jesus!
How I do love Thee.
Worship and adore
Thee. Pleading for
mercy.  Falling,
Falling face down 
before Thee.
I pledge mine
sacred honor to Thee.

Beloved Lord Jesus!
How wonderful fair
Thou are.  More
precious than
diamonds.  And
more valuable 
than either
silver or gold.

Beloved Lord Jesus!
More colorful...Read More

Permaculture Design,
like any health restoring process,
begins with listening to each ZeroZone client
speak about deeply held goals and underlying values
they would like to share with their OneZone property(s).

We live every day,
We die only once,
No reruns of it either way,

Being almost late,
Is always on time,
We are almost late every time.

Our present moment,
Is our past moment,
Our future moment is now.

A tear from Heaven,
Froze top a mountain,
Goes on to feed...Read More

Boxes of Books
In the basement storage space
Where tenants get to stow
Those items they’ve collected,
Lots of things now have to go.

They’re cleaning up, so it was time
To sort through what we’d kept,
Deciding what to ditch or save
(Or what I could accept).

My husband’s books...Read More

Propose to Those Who I Oppose
Propose to Those Who I Oppose

My perfect plan I will propose;
Was designed for all of those;
Never bitter;
All consider;
Either support me or oppose.

How shall I begin,
we say we're not a couple,

the trees smiled a hello to the October moon

She peeked in on them with her open heart,
