Michael Murphy-Burke was born in New Orleans, Louisiana, on September 30, 1959.
This happens to be the same day that Rumi, the great Sufi mystic poet, was born.
This is not a coincidence, as “coincidence is just God’s way of staying anonymous”.
Michael grew up surrounded by music, art, passion, freedom of expression, and the absolute power of living on his own path. He’s been a poet all his life, with his first published material being in his high school newspaper when he was a sophomore.
More recently, he contributes steadily to Oracle Magazine and is also published in Aquarius Magazine and Conscious Life Journal.
In addition to writing, Michael also creates artistic visions in a variety of woods for private clients as a custom woodworker. He can also be found doing spoken word, sacred sound shows, and meditations throughout the Atlanta area and beyond.
