A cowboy don't need no plushy pew or a rantin' preacher,
Pontificatin' from his pulpit aerie as his spiritual teacher!
He gits his religion from (to him) a more gratifyin' source,
Cherishin' God's Great Creation from the saddle of his horse!

New Lady D Arbanville
Storms came to flood the perversion of careless claims,
The silent witness seated in his chair with bowed head,
Not a word is to be spoken, not an iota of acknowledgement to be offered,
Despise the betrayal, proclaim the abomination,
Never repeat the nonsense,...Read More

I am just a blade of grass

narrow leaves, growing wild sod

lawns pasture, as a fodder crop.

Sun’s splendor orange ball spread
O’re granite giants and tame vales 
Wild wind’s daring waft he rode
How mystic, oh fate; ired dragon 
By ired hero’s hand slayed
Upon chariot fierce steeds
Thunder and spear soiled the field 
Slain souls of victory sang

No More a Woman
The rainy season is on the land
I see much sward without sand
It’s like music of a good band

Trees have grown striking flowers
A strong wind makes’em shaken off
Down, many fall; others stick maiden

I am a floppy mother chicken;
My chicks do slumber...Read More

The House on the Hill
The clouds throw shadows from the sky
on where the field hand seeks reward,
his reap leaving a golden sward
over the ground where sunlight lies.

Atop a rise a fine house stands
that somehow there does not impose
though alien in its lone repse.

Cassius Crow
Cassius Crow

Cassius Crow was a big old bird
with shiny feathers, long and black.
his family members, near and dear
jawed at each other - clackity clack.

Cassius' flock nested in a wood
full of pine from old Monterey
and as far as old Cassius knew
they'd...Read More

Jul 15,  2017• By daniel miltz •

While the morning dozes in handedly
The sun paints inciting vegetation 
Bit of greenly sward, applauds, snappishly 
Moving, moping, in startled asp'ration 
Lying in torment, unpretentiously 

Wide-eyed land, romps energetically 
Iridescent sunrise, floating flightless...Read More

 Erase the evil from your heart
Happiness is your sharp sward
Hope for goodness work as good man

Foundation Shake Down
Ground is quaking
Man made walls shaken
Earthly foundation is breaking.
The enemy has planted a mind friend about me
So peace and joy will forsake me,through the personnel mind of fear and regret
I navigate the minefield prayerfully low crowing on my stomach 
Probing...Read More

Clouds walk on the horizon and etch new rivers
 on your body feeding the offspring with meaning.

Spring Is Coming Soon
Spring is coming soon  - and thank the Lord!
Resplendent blossoms renovate each tree.
It cannot get here quick enough for me,
Nor does it linger long. The shining sward
Gleams, garlanded with daisies.  Every pond
Is laced with life!  I love...Read More

Premium Member Loves Endless Tears

I dream
Always searching
Looking, seeking yet
Never finding
My lost love
Gone long
So deep
So tranquil
Soft and gentle
Yet full of such mirth
And happiness
Joy was found
In her
Flowing hair
Framing a face
Delicate and bright
Those dark tresses
Skin so
Red lips
Ruby bright
How I long for
Her passionate kiss
Setting aflame
Such hunger
In our
As one

The religious prostitute
Our religious institutions 
Are now filled with spiritual prostitution
Worshiping dollar bills
Instead of the one whose blood spilled.
Preachers administer biblical laxatives
Making many thin
Where is the Holy Spirit? 
Who is supposed to shine within?
There is Accountability 
And Responsibility
When your flocks is left...Read More

Breeze Of Hope
Amidst the mountains so tall an straight,
I begged the horizons to know my fate.

There it was all across the sward.
Within my soul,fluttered the fresh summer breeze,
Flows over the rivers and goes across the...Read More
