Carrying every smiles like a new born baby

So genuine i asked for an address
To redress your issues again

Just look up towards North,
You see the Polaris if you try,
To guide you to our hearth!

It was the weekend, and I was sleeping late that day,
Alone with the morning, while savoring marvels of May.

As I drowsed luxuriantly, at the outskirts of dreams,
I heard a strange sound, while soaking in gay sunbeams!

Penny Postcard, Wrong Address
Penny Postcard, Wrong Address
by Michael R. Burch

(for the victims and survivors of the Holocaust)

We saw their pictures:
tortured out of our imaginations
like golems.

We could not believe
in their frail extremities
or their gaunt faces,

pallid as our disbelief.
They are not
with us now ...

We have:

And find solutions without delay.

Across a misty channel
Sensor fingers
Through foggy, silent waves
Where two souls embrace
In expeditions of speechless discovery
Two minds stand naked,
Face to face,
With wordless words
Each knowing the inner rhyme 
Of another soul –
Intimate outside skin and limbs.

Across the barriers of minutes, hours, months

Lights! Camera! Action!
Cue “My Sister Sam”
At first sight there was attraction
Fanboy’s heart was smitten—BAM!

As he watched her on TV
His infatuation grew
So he wrote her lots of fan mail
Her one response stirred obsession's brew

For a time all was serene

"I think I shall never see a poem lovely as a tree."

The Parable and the Penguin

All the world a stage
Our love not left on a shelf
Waters edge, in spades

Written in stone, ring
Waddle waddle kind of swing
Will you marry me

As we take the plunge
Into the depths out of blue
Our ceremony

Is a slow walk, true
Is a path...Read More
