i was filled
not with happiness
but with a deep contempt
my heart beats with reason today
this sounds more like a diary entry than a poem...
Oh, the mighty frailty aloofness brought me

Threw me deeper into the chambers of lost but not yet found

Courage to carry on was dumped into a sea of unwanted thoughts

thoughts, trying there best to push my nerve aside

How was I to find my robust courage and have a conversation with it

How was I to let courage know it was very much needed

When it was out there to be found by plenty like me

And only visited those who dared to welcome it with open arms of steel and tears of desperation to proceed

Oh mighty courage, pay me a visit, will you?

I do have the arms of steel to hold you

I do have my blanket of bravery to embrace you

To let you know I am not here for timorousness but you and only you, my dear.
by Michael R. Burch

Preposterous bird!
Inelegant! Absurd!

Until the great & mighty heron
brandishes his fearsome sword.

I wrote this poem for a great blue heron who visits a pond that I pass on my daily walks — a truly majestic bird and the ultimate spear-fisher.
Light haired
Light hearted
Bright and mighty
Energy never leaves
See you on the other side
I'll use your force

If I can say unto this mountain
“Be Thou Moved”
I can surely move myself.

If I can say unto the waters
“Be dry”
Surely I can fill myself.

But these things I can only do,
Through You.

The poor bless the rich,
and the lowly bless the mighty;
Even as Jacob blessed Pharaoh,
And the giver blessed.

Rubayiat Al Thurab (Verses of the Dust) - 79

BismillahIr RahmanIr Raheem

Wisely let your curiosity flow like a flowing river,
Towards the superior wisdom of the mighty ocean.

The mighty ocean naturally obtains a deep divine knowledge,
Before you undoubtedly reach to your divine knowledge.

Gently let your egos desire and sins extinct with the flowing river,
As a prompt result you can outreach the mighty ocean as holier than thou!

Allah Khair..... Khairul Rabul Alameen Yah Arrahmanur Yah Raheem

Rubayiat Al Thurab (Verses of the Dust)
rgz Mar 2019
The shadow is cast
At the whim of the light
Ravaged by the same
Shattered by night

The shadow is patient
Waiting in place
Its presence unknown
Before light gives it shape

The shadow is power
To be tamed and feared
Wherever light is
The shadow is near

This shadow is yours
Pause and take heed
Embrace and observe
But don't let it lead
My shadow
Shedding skin
I've been picking
Scabs again
