Bloody Vegans
Vegans want protected status given to religious beliefs, 
good grief,
they see themselves objectively separate, 
a people underneath, 
claim they are bullied when really teased, 
it’s unnatural to never eat meat, 
compare a faith with your choice of diet,

Myth, after Dylan Thomas
Myth, after Dylan Thomas
by Michael R. Burch

Here the recalcitrant wind
sighs with grievance and remorse
over fields of wayward gorse
and thistle-throttled lanes.

And she is the myth of the scythed wheat
hewn and sighing, complete,
waiting, lain in a low sheaf?
full of faith, full of...Read More

Lost and Found
When we're faced with
Life's situations that seek
To alter our paths in a 
Negative manner and each
Researched solution seems
To drift away at every turn,
Seeds of insecurity and frustration
Are planted and doubt takes root
To our cerebrums
Like weeds to a garden.
We fall to...Read More

Country Church Nestled in the Wilderness

A country church nestled in a peaceful valley,
Against a glorious backdrop of tall mountains,
That were fashioned before Eden’s retched  malady,
That beset the human soul and rich surroundings.

Beautiful dog-wood trees with blossoms snowy white,
Bounded by rocks as old as the...Read More

Faith is conceptual belief
and like heaven itself 
it needs no proof
as it transcends time, place,
history, culture and space.
Yet, as faithful as we may be,
we are not of heaven
but are beings of the earth—
Unable to divorce ourselves
from the experiences of time,...Read More

In certainty of identification to belong in effect,

DO WE REALLY CARE
In our life-building engagement…
does genuine love prevail, upholding our commitment?

For this evaluative retrospection endeavor 
what response is needed to show our caring* fervor? 

Within our partnership, can lonely hearts find their home
feeling the warmth from our sweet grace-dome?

Possessed by an Angel
My demons were in a slumber
I finally saw grime on the glamour

My demons were asleep and done
When I saw goodness in everyone

I confronted hatred and jealousy
With kindness and generosity

I overwrote scars of enmity
With shades of benignity

My red eyes intoxicated by...Read More

NO ONE COULD SAVE ME BUT YOU
Cognizant of humanity’s befallen verdict
Deliberately transgressing sovereign laws
Affirming carnal nature flaws…
Yet You, God Almighty, quickened my soul along divine edict.

Midst condemnation terrifying my heart
Frightened to face death’s agonizing seizure
With horrifying sting of grave-pressure… 
Still, You offered me redemption-grace, never will...Read More

The camels are swimming,

God of changing changelessness.
God of endless surprises,
confounding the confoundless.
You are the God of Paradox,
revealing to children, that,
which you hide from the learned.

utterly transformed, Divinely

angelic wrestlers and mere mortals,
Jacob becoming the limping Israel,

but dead still. 
I rush.
