You! Across the paisley covered kitchen table!
Why do our knees kiss..then
lock helplessly in a welcome embrace, as in a fable?   

I am so enchanted when we feed each other.
The way you make those sunny omelets sets my 
heart all aflutter.

Hymn to Aphrodite
Hymn to Aphrodite
by Sappho
loose translation/interpretation by Michael R. Burch

Immortal Aphrodite, throned in splendor!
Wile-weaving daughter of Zeus, enchantress, and beguiler!
I implore you, dread mistress, discipline me no longer
with love's anguish!

But come to me once again in kindness,
heeding my prayers as you...Read More

I'm a Sky Blue Without You
Some say I'm a daydreamer
Someday, I will get better; whatever weather...
Someday, I will be...with you forever
Some say never, but never say never

I've been drifting like a feather in the sky these days
I've been wandering in many ways…
I sway today, today

The Cadence of My Heart
Morning found me on a river bank
basking in the warmth of the sun
I thought of myself as a turtle,  
believing my shell was armor
shielding my heart from everyone

I started to doze in placid tranquility
The sun's sultry breath laving my...Read More

An immediate connection today
In faerie land, people of the fey.
Wings could not stop moving all aflutter.
Cherish’s hair was soft, warm as butter.

He had an itch and Cherish was the cure.
He was a stranger in...Read More

The weeds to seed the leaves aflutter

Birds and bees, and butterflies…
warm embraces, endless sighs,
hearts aflutter, loving eyes -
communing under dreary skies.

Warm embraces, endless sighs,
enchantment in sublime retreat;
communing under dreary skies -
October doldrums turning sweet.

A Love Poem

When I was alone
I found myself
Continually landing
In fog

But as I moved
Closer to you
You baptized my mind

So that my life
Became a beautiful
Frame of snow.

Our conversations
Are as loving
As theological

And every morning
I find myself relaxed
Giving up a wishful mind

To enjoy
My present

Dragonflies practice their ballet
Tendering aflutter their cordial invites
To a world of whimsy and frivolity
A playful shimmer of glistening ripples
Mirrors of gilded sunlight enchantment
In a universe of magic and serenity
A microcosm of enticing fantasy
A hint of underwater wonderland
Looking on at wavelets...Read More

Premium Member The Year of the Butterflies
Awakened to rise on silken wings,
The beauty of the evenings;
To colorfully swirl, all aflutter,
In their dance of chaos utter!

They came en masse on summer breeze;
In a mystery of mysteries.
Dizzying in scented golden heat;
Yellow above the fields of wheat!

I never thought
I’d get that old
But here I am
In the twilight
Of my years
Time just flew by
At warp speed
Caught up with me
How did that happen
My heart’s aflutter
Trying to cram in
Every last drop
Of what I want 
To get done
Before the curtain falls

I overhear feisty breezes
whispering words of gibberish
amidst the sound of rustling leaves.

Setting the treetops aflutter
they garner secrets from the wind,
decoding subtle sighs and heaves.

Like an enchanted fairyland 
complete with ethereal sprites,
it’s an extraordinary park.

Rays of sunlight freckle the ground

A sweet smile underneath a garland crown,
With a floral fragrance all around…
Effortless efflorescence within the ethereal eye,
Upon a perennial posture with a seeding shy.

A frolicking flora before the quizzical Queen,

Freshful flowers illuminating with...Read More

I went down to the zoo today,
I watched the pink flamingos cuddle
their lovely long necks swaying
in little loving nuzzles.

Such graceful heartstrings they caressed
my spirit; brought me to a near swoon.
Such passion those two did possess;
were so very much in-tune.

As the sun sets, a hot wind like this
Does not belong in Lansing, Michigan,
But here it is, wild as a barbarian sprung from Santa Ana,
Speed-boating down the Grand River in sunglasses,
Making from gold, saxophones
Howling above the sizzling summer rooftops,
