Premium Member Unfurl Throb
Under vivid scattered sun rays 
Of the boundless horizon spun;
Thy breath spent upon mine cheeks graze 
Disarray gripping visit won.

Thy deep warm bass pulse, resonant, 
Unfurl a thrumming flow as one 
Through bare feet. Provoking movement,
Need to feed not just...Read More

And We Danced
And we danced,
To that song you love, the one that starts out slow,
A solitary violin, singing soft and low,
A flutist swells to join the strings, and your fingertips meet mine,
A sudden decrescendo, anticipation in your eyes…

And then we danced
To sudden...Read More

Premium Member Don't Let Your Pitter Patter
I once met a Spanish high flyer
She wiggled and danced on a wire
Her pitter once pattered
Grew ninety pounds fatter
And now she sings bass in a choir.

Beneath the city the river fishing is good.

I roam with tackle and pole below those wiggling tapeworms
Wound around the cement underbelly of bridges
Devouring the guts of the city’s glamour
Down here where shadows are long as green moss
And the voices of...Read More

Premium Member Fog and Water


Fog slow-dances over the inlet
until water and air waltz together.
Too early to tell
if any birds are awake
besides, my ears are muffled in the wet air.
Grebes and Coots colonize this tributary,
gulls just visit.
I could row out to the ocean from here,
but...Read More

Much I marveled the stereo rap
Fallow falling into civil traps
My mind always strays to ghetto
Remembering many sound, fatherless folk
They are perfumed from unseen yoke
What could there be more purely woke?
Where’s my money yo!
I felt obliged to not admire the folk

Follow your feet
Friday night is salsa night,
It's when i come alive,
It could be something else for you,
Tango, waltz or jive.

Find the fire that stirs your heart
And then your feet will follow,
Forget about the mess at home,
You can sort it out tomorrow.

Ramona and Beezus
Never was there a lovelier wedding that I ever did see,
Than that of Romona and Beezus's darling Aunt Bea! :)

At first the abandoned bridesmaid-to-be did react with sass
When she heard the news -- yelling he reeled in a sea bass!

Life with Celebrating Skating In It
Life with Celebrating Skating in It

Swishing sound,
All around;
Heart did pound. 

Looked toward,
Skating backward,
As I soared. 

Had been breeze,
Blowing through trees,
And a fast freeze.

When over pass;
Ice looked like glass;
Swam below bass.

Trip did end;
Return intend;
This poem send.

Rust. Age. Dirt. There was some wine. There were some tears. There were bad jokes and recollection of sin.

Ode to Hulk
His skin is stained like the softest grass
I bet he wouldn’t need a pole to catch a bass
The way his voice sounds so gravely and rough
Makes me almost forget about him being so buff

ONE VOICE
Tenar bass and soprano
And all the voices that I know
Sing one song of peace
Voices that never cease

Now the music is fading
Now The sounds are changing

All the notes are blur
Dim.... not the shining star

Relight the glowing ember
Use all... gasoline and timber
And...Read More

Fake Flowers
It’s not your lies
I can’t take

I can fashion those
making them
into a bouquet 

of plastic or

better yet
fake flowers

it’s the fact that 
you take me
for someone easy

with emotions
to be plucked

like strings 
on a jazz bass

and used for chords
in your grand
musical score

Premium Member MY FAVORITE FISHERMAN
I was remembering my father,
just the other day.
It’s been a lotta years,
since Daddy passed away.

My name is not important.
My fathers name was Jim.
He never called me by my name!
I was always Butch to him!

Fishing was his passion!
It was what he...Read More

Premium Member A Funny Christmas Poem
'Twas the night before Christmas
On the village square.
Carolers were singing.
Everyone was there.

My daddy was a baritone
But his falsetto filled the air.
Mama shrunk his boxers;
They're not ready-to-wear.

He asked Santa for some new ones;
He didn't dare go bare.
So, on Christmas morning,
Santa left...Read More

A spotted hyena escaped from the zoo.
Along with a spotted skunk, so that made two.
A spotted moray sounded the loud alarm.
A spotted bass swam off with some charm.
Spotted fever ticks transmitted some fever,
Spotted swine asked if I was a believer

Breaking through the apathy
Of the outside world
Subliminal in my ear
Like osmosis it issued forth
An amazing island of sound
With voice's resonance harmoniously imparted
With the multiplicity of overtones
From all directions
Omnipotent waves of notes of wonder
Absorbed within my cavity
The treble to bass
A soundtrack...Read More

Redolence
Redolence
by Michael R. Burch

Now darkness ponds upon the violet hills;
cicadas sing; the tall elms gently sway;
and night bends near, a deepening shade of gray;
the bass concerto of a bullfrog fills
what silence there once was; globed searchlights play.

Green hanging ferns adorn...Read More

This day
It’s a caliginous hour.
All this universe of verse 
Portrays random snippets of you,
It does not spell out the alphabet of reality,
As I utter, compliment, 
And offer rivers of lexical jewels
You’d find tender in the ode of fatherly love,
Under this nimbostratus...Read More
