Murmurations.
.
As thickening dusk
Subdues the tiring day
Flocks of starlings rest
Trilling and chattering in array
Upon tendril branches of trees
High up in the towering eves
As numbers increase
In readiness
.
Suddenly they alight as one 
The tress now bare as the eves
Of their feather laden leaves
And...Read More

Inner vocal Quiver
?As if a child should understand an  adult’s muddle,
putrid oil slick puddle,
the dreadful pain we foist on wide-eyed offspring.
Robotic elders crush with rigid slabs of Portland censure whatever spark remains in t iny rosebud coloured cheeks before their prime.

The Butterfly Garden
Under the light of a bright sunshine,
Sailing soft in the gallant wind,
Peaceful joys in acrobatic style.

Speckles of pearl, blend of rainbow,
Stylish lovers after perfume of them flowers,
Lullaby love songs, crooned in the jiggly wind.

Bright colours in their mantles,
As they hover...Read More

Premium Member Snuggle Bunny Fantasy
Under snow white sheets disarray
Snuggle Bunnies romp and play

Acrobatic twists and turns
Softly thumping bodies burn

As lustful fire starts to grow
Sweat moist bodies start to glow

And loving voices begin to switch
To lust filled groans of fevered pitch

Entwined in wanton ecstacy
Of Snuggle...Read More

Underpants and a dance
Just outta of a shower and pampering 
The next step for me is dressing
I’m so fresh and clean
And wanting to look so neat and pristine 

I line up my boxers strategically placed
I’m ready in my dressing place
As I place my...Read More

Signs
everywhere in Asia
you see strange variations

Hard to get lost

but the random encounters

The Squirrel
Agile, gray-brown fluff
 burying acorns in the yarded scruff,
future mighty oak spawned nests of hope
 stretched out branch trapezed along a tightrope,
chatter banter circular frolicking unfaint
 tail challenge waving screech complaints,
acrobatic voyeur of the crowned aerial topography
 where forest...Read More

Daredevil
Daredevil
by Michael R. Burch

There are days that I believe
(and nights that I deny)
love is not mutilation.

Daredevil, dry your eyes.

There are tightropes leaps bereave—
taut wires strumming high
brief songs, infatuations.

Daredevil, dry your eyes.

There were cannon shots’ soirees,
hearts barricaded, wise . . .

A kitchen without a woman
Me and my woman had a fight
I feel like i was knocked out but she only took flight
She left in haste without a hug or a peck
A littered kitchen was my first reality check

The dirty dishes are now screaming at...Read More

Ghost Hollow
The Laskey brothers owned a farm, a lovely little spot.
A babbling brook made merry mist when summer nights were hot.
And that’s when Jacob filled his pipe and sat upon a boulder.
The smoke arose, a haloed ring around his tired shoulders.

My Serenity
The cottonwood fluff blankets the ground
In a thick snowy white layer,
As the gentle breeze whispers 
Through the emerald green foliage.

The fragrance of mowed sun dried hay up ahead,
As the farmer’s toys mulch it and create neat long rows,
Then numerous identical...Read More

feathers and fur

Premium Member Winged Comprehension

Inside its tiny brain,
does it think?
"I'm a cargo plane."

Or does it
imagine acrobatic feats?

Does it hear
its wings sound zooms?
As it flies across a room.
Imagining,
“I have flown 
to the moon!”

Likely though,
there is no thought.
Mercifully when
in a spider’s web,
CAUGHT!

It's Two Days After Thursday
Enter the Everest that devastates,
he never ever rests and he demonstrates,
how the greatness activates traits
that forever feed hate,
into enemies with envious jealousy
and sad little nul and void abilities.

It's a given that even if you sail the seven seas,

Huffle winks
The tiny dragons dance aloft
whilst dragonflies soar amuck
They dance over the lake, over the lake they waft

The huffle-winks peer from the muck
At the bright flittering troupe 
Dancing over the water, dancing by the brush

Those dancing dragons, how they swoop!

she’s never been right, tripping over everyone’s laces.

Dolphins

Watch the aquatic mammals reigning warm waters
Riding ocean waves zestfully flexing playful behavior
Jumping high in air performing acrobatic maneuvers
Synchronizing movements impressing fond watchers.

Be dazzled by their graceful moves peeking up for air
Turning around buoyantly raising caudal fins in pairs
Diving elongated...Read More

The Fishing Trip
Sitting under a generous eucalyptus tree
It's vibrant feet buried under dark gray moist
Ground. Its pendulum branches bending toward the
bubbly melodious canal; allowing the thin silvery
finger-like leaves to caress the meandering 
Blue-green water. 

In its canopy, groups of cicadas and crickets...Read More
