Premium Member Unforeseen Aubade
Up slightly past midnight, 
we finally called it a day as we 
exchanged goodnight kisses and 
amorous glances with tired eyes

Half-awake early morn', I lay supine 
on the left side of our king-sized bed
I scanned the right up-and-down for her;...Read More

at sea
A cook at sea

The sea is restless and white-crested
It moves the ship up and down and sideways
Broad legged the cook tries to keep order
With dancing pots and pans.

He dreams of roses but is surrounded by steel
He knew of better times,...Read More

She has become as the night—listening
for rumors of dawn—while the dew, glistening,
reminds me of her, and the wind, whistling,
lashes my cheeks with its soft chastening.

She has become as the lights—flickering
in the distance—till memories old and troubling
rise up...Read More

how it commenced
How it commenced

Some fish found it difficult to breaths
Underwater, they swam ashore and rested
Later they crawled to the garden of Eden
Where grew hands and feet

The post office is an oasis of harmony caused
By women staff who work slowly.

Nice Deeds
I'd rather take nice deeds for granted
than not believe in Heaven
And make the others feel their shame
when lost comparing devon

That I am lost for seeing theirs
in shock detained from reverend
When all I did was witness love
for walks of life been...Read More

Atlantean PipeDream
Running this way and that, in search of some adventure new
The roads ran their course with flatirons the ruts not few
Over hill, mountain, river, valley, flood, glen and dale
To the open sea with long, sandy beaches and cut-up shale

Oracle of Giza
A new day perhaps, of immeasurable tin, sound of din
A hurricane noise, a thrall of riotous cuts, although thin
The blood-curdle choke of rage from before
Now purchased like plasma from the needle store
Go hump yourself, If you want my schtick, you...Read More

To Gawk
The thorns have come for me
Her deadly flower walks
There's more for taking me
to deadly hallow docks

What once was gracing me
now trecherous goary blocks
When now I come to see
her hoary marry mocks

That now  I know to see
more caring fair-thee flocks

What It Can Be
Somehow I want my heart to shut down
To sabotage my way
To make the other in my life
expect what I'm to pay

To make my heart obey the head
that logic says is right
To take what all will come with it
when pain exists...Read More

I wish I was young and still drinking
Where others would see my soul
And feelings were thought together
for shallowness meant to role

That all of my troubles were sexual
and life meant I'm easy that way
For others to see me as special
and happiness...Read More

Every Day You Play

Every day you play with Infinity’s rays.
Exquisite visitor, you arrive with the flowers and the water.
You are vastly more than this immaculate head I clasp tightly
like a cornucopia, every day,...Read More

truist youurself like George
Trust in yourself
If you trust others, they do so
Out of self-interest
Not what is best for you.
To be a follower is dangerous
When you wake up naked
And nowhere to go but follow
The stream. Give up.
Making you unhappy and discontent
A deep-seated irritation
Of a...Read More

The healer

Do you remember the night when?
The floodlight came on as we sat by the riverside?
You said you loved me and I quickly said ditto,
A joke you didn’t appreciate.
 Mosquitoes flew like silent angles through air

These Hallowed Halls
These Hallowed Halls
by Michael R. Burch


A final stereo fades into silence
and now there is seldom a murmur
to trouble the slumber
of these ancient halls.

I stand by a window where others have watched
the passage of time, alone,
not untouched,
and I am as they...Read More

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

where an aubade of dawn creates waves of serenity.

the foreign bird
The foreign bird
I knew him well trying to blend in
Speaking the language too flawlessly
So, the embarrassment when he
On occasions, got it wrong.
It was not his mother tongue so
His speech was too slow and learned.
Made the language into disharmony
In a country...Read More

Reveals she hasn't left but still is near
