Time heals all wombs

time heals all wombs

                             your funeral

                      the priest babbles on

                              while you 



                             I watch your 

                           tiny headstone

                               in the rain

End Game

False Dawn's ribbon invades the night Fear forbids to close my weary eyes Drift off, away, never more to rise What's the point of hanging on? Should I give in, Let be done? Riddled body... Lying quiet I have said my farewells A lonely tolling of Bells Kind Spirits implore Calm acceptance Of Time called To embrace A new life With our Maker From Now On .

I Will Die In Saskatchewan

                                    Those big rolling plains,
                    as if the ground with golden sun is stained,
                 and that sky as if the oceans northward rised,
                                      layed flat above:
                           the sky and earth are making love.                    
                                   There, I breathe the air,

               As if my final moments             here, are laced with God,
                                             a divine plot,
                         and the end                     is drawing near

World Assimilators

World Assimilators

More and more to our suburban sprawl
Proliferating roads with rush hour crawl.
Crush of humanity completely unfurled
Replacing an irretrievable natural world
Along with farm lands never more tilled
Buried by progress that’s never fulfilled.
Identical houses lined up in many plots
On biologically sterilized landscape lots.
Residers never happy with their  things,
Joneses always having the  latest  bling.
We look in wrong quarters for  invaders
Thinking foreign, possibly alien  raiders,
Imaging assimilation coming from  afar,
Blind to how much like the Borg we are.

Death Do Us Part

            hope lies             slit wrist
        not much            tight twist~
      twitch finger        missed kiss~~
      guilty little              witchy miss~~~
        long run      nothing there
   cold breath       steaming stare
      thought you've    always known
    never cared          busy phone
    times gone           bye bye
        no regrets          we die

Time Can only Tell When 
We Will Meet And Be In
Each Others Arms Again Time
Will Bring Us Together Never
Apart We Can Hug Each 
Other And Hold Each Other 
Time Is On Our Side ANd
We Got All The Time 
In The World.

Another crude attempt at shape poetry

When hope in everything else is lost, 
that is when we look for miracles.
for hiding the ever flowing tears,
the thundering rain to drench. 
To overwhelm a broken soul, 
we wish for a wounded leg.
Train ourselves to smile,
at the face of trouble.
A wandering saint! 
from possession,           -Ravi
from emotions,
we walk away.
Not to own,
we sail.

Scattered Skies

Scattered skies, scattered mind.

I float above myself like a stray nimbus cloud.

I watch the world float by below me.

The wind blows right through me.

I break apart.

Scattered skies.

Scattered mind.

GRIEF a VVV poem

GRIEF a VVV poem

    paused    silence
     unsaid    words,
cadenced    sounds
    remain     for
        ever     in
         our      tears

NOTE a VVV (visual vertical verse) is a proverbial style shape poem inspired by A R Ammons 'Cleavage and Chasm ' poetry to which I have now applied this new convenient label and an integral title.

Hear me recite my poems on youtube under my pen name ichthyschiro

and catch my short forms on twitter @strandpoet..

"Invisioned: Dance Of The Dead"

I saw him alone, in his' own little world.
Eyes pinched together, barely able,
To see over the edge of infinity.
I watch him.
Not with my eyes, but with my soul.
My heart aches.
It opens.
A single drop of blood falls, in an anguished cry.
His' blanket, fell at his' feet.
Snow, danced around the body, and,
I could almost hear them laughing.
Were they merry,At knowing he had strayed from his' broken state?
I watched, and I scratched my mind,
On a whisp of barbed wire.

Grief - Visual Vertical Verse
    anguish       torment
  mourning       death
  unspoken       love
   weeping        wail
     always        pain

      Time is steadfast and unchanging.
          I continues forever and waits
               for none. Like the night,
                    it's dark to many.
                       Though the
                        results are
                        Time is 
                     precious and 
                 must be treasured.
              For today could be your 
           last. But as for one time is 
   nothing. For as with God eternity lasts.

Visual Vertical Verse


                      empty              rooms
                      broken             heart
                      shattered          soul
                      always              close
                      within               me,
                      Lord                 help
                      I                      weep

The Shape of Mourning

The Shape of Mourning
by Michael R. Burch

The shape of mourning
is an oiled creel
shining with unuse,

the bolt of cold steel
on a locker
shielding memory,

the monthly penance
of flowers,
the annual wake,

the face in the photograph
no longer dissolving under scrutiny,
becoming a keepsake,

the useless mower
lying forgotten
in weeds,

rings and crosses and
all the paraphernalia
the soul no longer needs.
