walking alone in isidro street
as the afterglow fades,
i never see you coming
you hit me right there.

my hair, my face
i'm so unprepared.
Rosy tint on my cheeks
and I'm starting to flare

would you walk in to me close?
perhaps fire me a smirk.

Gift of True Love
I close my eyes, and you come to me close 
haunting my mind, permeating my soul.
Imprinted memories , past timelines froze
an unbridled sedation reigns control.

In tender breeze, a floating feather sways
like soft afterglow, sky of countless stars,
true love feels so...Read More

A balmy fragrance of cedar and lime lingers
A will o wisp floats by gathering dew
A mark on the page of another man’s book
A brightly coloured crayon of an unknown hue

A footprint in golden sands sinking deep

Sonnets V-VIII
by Michael R. Burch
The night is full of stars. Which still exist?
Before time ends, perhaps one day we’ll know.
For now I hold your fingers to my lips
and feel their pulse: warm, palpable and slow;
once slow to match this reckless...Read More

Premium Member Delectation
By: Miracle Man

When making Shrimp Alfredo,
I feel delectation. 
Its aroma never fails,
in starting juices to flow. 
The quantity is usually,
for a two day ration.
Even Alfredo leftovers,
give me an afterglow.

Now she must choose between bullet and bloom
But even in this afterglow

Fragrant magick candlelight flickers hot, 

blue, red flame stimulating sparks bind hands. 

Tame harmony remains. "Love." While love awakes

a wanderer of my emboldened heart;

gentle wind meander blows, and gusts oppose. 

I discern your quintessence in the breeze

emerging out of dust...Read More

Fitting like imperfect symmetry 
laser cut with broken edges 
afterglow like a shattered hourglass
wind blown tresses 
let it go, sitting on a level 
every little flaw just a little less

Pathways To Serenity

In the absence of complication,
trials and tribulations become distant memories.
Above, sapphire skies delight sanguine eyes 
and inspire forthcoming musings of the mind ***

together we can breach the Universal laws...Read More

A sense of delight in maturity one can find in some wrinkled smiles,

They carry the memories in enchanted experiences as treasure,

Winter revels
Old Lang Syne meaningfully with gusto
Hogmanay celebrations in full swing
Revellers savour whiskeys afterglow
Watching square dancers doing highland fling

Laden snow clouds have accumulated 
Inky heavens to sheer mountain ski top
As frozen misty hailstones enshrouded
onwards from midnight chimes, it did not stop

Dusk keeps dark
Evening breeze cools;
Sense sleepy pulse


In the darkness
Old echoes fade;
Sleep wings away


Sunset hues
Crimson afterglow;
Wind laughs aloud


Daybreak arrives
A new tempo;
Grand vistas


Hard times echo
Weak business pulse;
Cash leaking blood


Surge of passion
Attentive glimpse;
Lovers serenade


Clever workout
Yoga posture finds;
Outlook binds

Logic falls down
In tedious frowns;
Reason now clowns
As feelings drown.

Sense fragile change
In bonfire strange;
A dying range
In trying change.

Word patterns tell
Of odd dry spells;
Verse rhymes that gel
Chimes where touch dwells.

So fashion flow
In afterglow;
For all you know
Passion can grow.

Upsidedown world
In fearful swirls;
Feel surge...Read More

Premium Member Hail Gloria, New Jersey 1986
She comes, Hail Gloria, growing in her approach,
wind and sea rising together, embracing. 
She washes over me in her ardent desire, touching, tasting, loving.
The sand, her fingers, raking, biting, 
dots of blood well where she touches me.
My hair entwined with...Read More

My soul has been sleeping for quite some time,
I dreamed about dreams that were lost for a while.
I was vanished by fear and felt nightmare in my life
There are moments of renunciation that painted me black.

Rebellious hearts won fame and infamy,
And knew black nights of burgundy.
Then resisted we the merest tyranny;
For we'd so long longed to be free.

So hip and wild and young--
We touched tongue to tongue.
And to our dreams fiercely clung;
Children of the flowers...Read More

Evening breeze 
Dry cool comfort;
Punctuates hazy day


Busy feet pound
Park walkway path;
Morning work rush


Birdsong echoes
Dawn salute;
Morning Glory flowers


Food paradise
Spoilt for choice;
Same old dish


Scented perfume
Floral sensations;
Charming delights


Promenade walkway
Airy seaside smells;
Evening serenade


Abrupt dusk
Darkness blankets;
Eyes stare blindly


Distant afterglow
Moist evening sky;
Hint of rain


Words slip away

Wondrous was the day that you were born,
Our miracle made from loves composed…
A thousand Angels came to adorn,
Symphonic seraphim smiling posed.

What a joy to hold you forever,
Eruptive emotions with love flow…
Your healing heart our greatest treasure,
Your festal face heavens afterglow.

God didn’t intend,
For our pilgrimage through time,
To be spent as puppets on a string,
Always dancing to the music of another.
For when we dance to the Devil’s music,
Then he becomes our puppet master,
And we’ll pay his...Read More
