Land of the free Liberia
Land of the Free

Oh! Thou sweet land of the free, ????

You paved the way so others could find their ways

Where men of letter fought for a better day, 

And find solutions without delay.

Oh! The first daughter of Africa ????

In February
Illnesses besetting
Parents aging
Chilled waves of anxiety
     buffet the shore
Thunderclouds dampening
     soil and spirits
Cellos, subdued in minor sonority
     play Eleanor Rigby in my mind
Painted ponies gnashing

Premium Member I have been on a journey
I have been on a long journey- 
the road I have traveled has been a rocky one

Premium Member Out To Pasture
Retirement from community development,
facilitating cooperative economic justice
in this post-millennial time of climate crisis,
feels like being put out to pasture
with the rest of us toothless and feckless horses

Stalking senior centers
and gated communities
to weather the fade-out storm
of physical
and mental,
and spiritual encroaching unease

Premium Member RAIN CRY- -
I used to cry at the littlest of things;
Upon rethinking this what does it really bring;
Mystic Misty rather cloudy rays;
My tears flow down my face;
Like a raging storm amidst the suns glaze;
Down flows on  downflo unto my intimate space;

Flicker, flash and fork of light
strike across dark sky this night.
Zigzag sizzle, ozone blaze.
Voltage image enters eyes,
too fast for that reflex time.

Bend through lens to focus fine
electric etch on optic nerve.
Slowly now rumbles arrive
to bump, bounce and dissipate.
Donner and blitzen...Read More

Another day dies as I sit in a fallow field and watch 
my dream sprouting among the wild  green weeds.
The  silence  of the valley is soon broken as evening
approaches and  birds  take their last flight.

(Verse 1)
I just want to be 
Involved in something romantically
With someone who wants to be
In this together with me
Oh I 
Want to be with a guy 
Who understands why 
Why he chose 
To be with me whoa
Promise to give all...Read More

for her lost leopard who took fright.

Standing In A Storm
I stood up against some of the deepest intent,
What many could not see..His spirit led,
Even after the fact, when things came out of the closet,
What i knew already made no difference in the darkness,
It was only when the light came...Read More

Crazy Horse's Naming Vision
Crazy Horse's Naming Vision
by Michael R. Burch

and yet I now fly
through these clouds that are aimlessly drifting...
so high
that no sound
echoing by
below where the mountains are lifting
the sky
can be heard.

Like a bird,
but not meek,
like a hawk from a distance regarding its...Read More

Singing the Black Cat Blues
People stop and stare
when I pass them on the street,
some believe it is bad luck
as our paths cross each other
others turn away and do not bother.

like a black cloud ready to...Read More

Dreams of spring
The violent storm has passed

The mystical allure 
Of an island in the sun
Embraced by deepest waters 
Of sparkling sapphire blue
A tranquil sanctum
A secret retreat
A calling from within

And on this Isle their hearts entwined
Where promises and vows were made
