Under the canopy of the pine trees we lay*
My brothers and I, and our mates the other three,
They wore a different uniform the colour grey
Yet here in purgatory a smile from them being free

Oh to remember how we all played...Read More

Locked In

The walls all around, 
are not what is doing me under. 
It is not the lack of air, 
food or needed sustenance…
It is not the distance, 
between the front gate…
and the back. 
It is not the water, 
which tastes...Read More

I'm a Warrior

Don't bleed of fear

Armed and ready for battle

Anytime Anywhere

Don't look for trouble

But if trouble be

Skies of lightning and thunder

Strike my enemies

Am a Warrior

No one's too Big

To be cut down and defeated

By Grace of GOD they will

I'm the Warrior

Our horses are running to save our lives
Distance traveled to far to describe

The horse's quick hooves trample the grass
Never to slow, their hearts must surpass

Faster they go, with eyes firmly fixed
In changing terrain fences of sticks

We brothers in arms since...Read More

Let Our Swords Clash
Let Our Swords Clash!

I found that life in my world is like fencing!
Tell me, World! 
What’s on the line?
Does the loser give in?
Ready or not? Let’s begin!

For all these years I finally realise,
It was me and the world
Joints now petrified

 Deciphered deceptions that the summer brings,
As the cathedrals crumble for the corona Kings…
Units ubiquitous unleashed with sweeping strings,
Infectious isolation internal as the contagious clings…

The wounded wander amongst the Hellion hordes,
Where the good battle evil with spiritual swords…
Incurable innocence isolated...Read More

en garde
our swords unsheathed
it is our time to spar
sparing no blows
no matter
how hard

flesh feels the wounds
with love and lust filled
thrusts trusting
to make a mark
scar the heart

pain changes to bliss
torturing each other
with touch just so
then i give in

your sword in hand
guiding it...Read More

Premium Member Nature Knows Best
A flower shoots up through the gravel in the back yard

Enthused by persuasion of spreading seeds for dear life

Red petals applaud a scented splash of dissident colour

Among yellow clover converging in strides of plentitude

	The poppy marches on nevertheless

Premium Member What do we know
We look at this world from our hiding place,
Through a mist of ignorance and prejudiced gaze,
From a tiny little hole with a tiny little piece,
We interpret the whole blooming space!

Intellect is locked and we have thrown away key,
Our God given...Read More

Neither the clang of swords, nor the rattle of guns
Nor the devastating drop of bombs nor bomber’s motion
But a hush-hush research in quiet laboratory in a far corner

 Horses in battle with valor showed
 In ancient times when conflicts rose
 On mighty steeds warriors rode
 Swords at the ready to vanquish foes

 Modern battles by machines are run
 Which allowed the equines to have more fun

His deepest belief was in truth,
His greatest faith was in God,
He was selfless in his pursuit,
Millions followed where he trod!

Thin and small at five foot five,
He won his...Read More

Ancient village
Once in a while, beneath a full moon 
The village folks gather alongside the fire
Celebrating ancient beliefs passed to them
Engaged with darkness until night expires 
Their drums engulf passion, passed to the wind 
Keeping their footsteps firm with the beat

Helen, Troyless
by Michael R. Burch

"The face that launched a thousand ships..."

Helen, bright accompaniment,
accouterment of war as sure as all
the polished swords of princes groomed to lie
in mausoleums all eternity...

The price of love is not so high
as never to have loved...Read More

I flew across the border, with my wings spread wide
Fear, tear and blood - was all I saw.
A little one of four
clenched her fist,
she held a flower her mother kissed.
There was anger in her eyes,
said she hated how her mother...Read More

Premium Member Does Anyone Care

Does anyone care? He asked no one.
No one did not know, so he consulted someone.
Someone said everyone cares.

No they don’t! Argued anyone.
Of course they do! Someone argued.
Pretty soon it was a war with swords and guns.

There was devastation; the entire...Read More

All things can tempt me, albeit, rapture,

Fancifully toss their well-chosen words,
