Your Move Lord

Is there a God?
A benevolent entity.
An eternal presence presiding over me.
A creator, watching and observing.
All knowing.
Is my end determined and conclusive before it begins, before I begin?
If so, then to what purpose...

Yourselves! And when...

And I'm so… patiently shaking like a leaf
Vigorously feeling vital everyday...
Every minute...every second...come...

Roses and Lilacs
Winter
by Michael R. Burch

The rose of love's bright promise
lies torn by her own thorn;
her scent was sweet
but at her feet
the pallid aphids mourn.

The lilac of devotion

she shivers—nude, forlorn.

Let me give her diamonds
