My Persian LICKS with abandon
A cat with a mission in hand'en
When suddenly he chokes
HAIRBALLS stuck in his throat
And upchucks over me where I'm standin'!

Birdsong
by Rumi
loose translation by Michael R. Burch

Birdsong relieves
my deepest griefs:
now I'm just as ecstatic as they,
but with nothing to say!
Please universe,

The Battle Of Thermopylae
Hearing of a Persian invasion,

the Spartan King marched for his nation,

To a narrow pass, he would defend.

Persians demanded they drop their weapons,

Spartans replied, their future destined,

"Molon Labe"  Come and get them!...

26 Miles and 385 Yards

A Greek soldier's fabled run
to Athens from the battlefield
announcing the defeat of the Persian,
a Greek soldier's fabled run,
he collapsed as his job was done.
'Athens is saved' he just yelled,
a Greek soldier's fabled run
to Athens from the battlefield....

Thermopylae
thermopylae still haunts me to this life. The sights I saw, the blood I spilled. When my men stood tall I stood taller. For every Persian my brothers killed, I killed two. When the sun set are sights were set. Tonight we dine in hades, with all the Persians we take with us....

King - A Haiku

noctilucent boys
A Persian, friendly king flies
in spite of the friend

enemies scatter
as the children over throw
kingdoms come down hard

in spite of the fiends
as the children over throw
the kingdom comes down

daddy
A whiff of the wind made me think of you
My dear daddy.

The Persian Peninsula has lost a rare diamond
Your death is a strong reality
Which I have realized.

Now I live on bearing your absence
I pray that you are in the 
Highest Castle of Heaven.

With an elegance unseen
You appear to me in sun beams...

Maggie
Margaret is a precious jewel
That comes from far and wide
She shines with such a brilliance
She cannot hope to hide.

People try to copy her
But no one gets it right
Because nothing can come close
To the iridescent sight

For Margaret is like no other
With colours set a whirl
Her name is Greek and Persian
A precious jewel, a pearl.

for my dog



...a flower 
For my 
Dog:
She sleeps 
 her dreams 
bring flower
To the
 Persian silk tree
Overhead

Sometimes,
After a long 
journey 
the winds 
rest there,
and sings
 to my dog
 their songs

She sends 
with the wind
a little ruff
a small woof,
it lingers 
by the steps
As I come home
and find
her voice,
fading softly...

Premium Member TEN BELOW VARIATIONS
TEN BELOW VARIATIONS

it’s ten below
          no place to go
warm roots asleep

sunny sky high
       ten degrees below
birds like shadows in the snow

         branches 
   weave a tangled web
ten below       with snow

so cozy inside
coffee
my fat persian licks itself

drifting snow
ten below zero
mind sliding down a rooftop

TO GOD IT SEEMS AS THOUGH
Hills pull their blankets out
and leave bare their naked spines
permitting Junes and me
to Summer there

Streams must appear to Him
as traveling caravans
The painted leaves like prisms do
with hues of rumpled Persian rugs

All seems Persia has pulled it's banners out
and march off to the sea
Turbaned poplars and lakes like tents
Is it jocosity?

The Persian Garden
In the gardens of Shiraz
Where the souls of poets still roam
The sleepy roses listen
As the santur plays a song
And the rosewater dewdrops
Spill onto the earth like tears
Leaving the soft breeze
To share the scent of jasmine tea
Sit on your silk carpet and relax
Swallow all of the beauty
That nature has to offer
Here's some advice, it goes well with tea...

The Cat Ladies of Singapore
A

Cat loving ladies
A ministry of cat care
To hungry felines.

B

Each day. Unfailing
Feeding your chosen creatures
Making us feel good.

C

I see and I ask
Why are these animals here?
Someone must love them.

D

Tabby. Persian. Black.
Each and every day they’re back
And their carers smile.

E

I try patting her.
Snarling she runs off frightened. 
I’m not her lady.

My Cat
I loved my cat.
She was a brat.
Never used the doormat.
Never would wear a hat.
Some people thought that she was fat.
Once she chased a rat.
Even tried to catch a bat.
She was good about covering her scat.
She didn’t have a face that was flat,
like a Persian cat
Now she lays in the road and is flat.
She met with a truck and went splat.
Swatting away at an annoying gnat,
I sadly write her epitaph....
