 The aria of the sunburst slivers of the sky,
entwined with the cadence of your ivory feet,
winding on the pearl-rolled silver sea shore,
carves the rhythm of your footprint sculpture,
only for an enthralling while,
until scraped by the surge of the tide...Read More

The red dirt so dry
I picked it up and let it run through
Reddish brown and so dry too
Then I stood and looked around
The long drought had cracked the ground

The wind blew the red dust up high
Into the clear blue azure sky
In the distance the...Read More

Will you dance with me
Will you dance with me
Under the stars near the sea
When the music floats across the water
And I’ll hold you close  like I oughta

We will laugh the night away
I will promise that I’ll stay
Then we will walk hand in hand
Along...Read More

Who’s that cow standing in the way

Moo-ove, Moo-ove

No, that’s a donkey,listen how he brays

Hee-haw, Hee-haw

I’m not the kinda man to be hurdling insults

"But that's a crazy monkey with a blabbering mouth"


Who’s that dog with the toothpaste teeth

Bow-Wow, Bow-Wow

Floating
Floating
by Michael R. Burch
 
Memories flood the sand’s unfolding scroll;
they pour in with the long, cursive tides of night.
 
Memories of revenant blue eyes and wild lips
moist and frantic against my own.
 
Memories of ghostly white limbs …
of soft sighs

There once was a great white 
Who was looking for a bite 
And there was a seashore town 
That had smiles instead of a frown 

Preparing for a 100 year celebration
With wind surfing racing 

It took a whole year of...Read More

Last night I dreamt of you
Last night I dreamt of you,
I was sleeping and I could feel you whispering,
Putting your arms around me,
Telling me to go to sleep, 
Telling me you loved me.

Last night I dreamt of you,
The music was playing and I had you...Read More

Manuel's Beach prose poem


It is hard to walk in the sand especially with boots and a heavy rifle. 
Manuel and I would sit on a rock and watch the moon give birth to 
a distant blue Africa.
Franco's Guardia Civil were not all thugs....Read More

summer sensations
Ocean waves gently tickle the shattered shells,
Strident seagulls briefly pierce the balmy strand.
Luring summer seems to work its magic spells
Tiny toes explore the gentle grains of sand.

Why I did it, I don’t know
Tornado of regret tortures my heart

On a moonless night, he approached 
Limping toward me as I pumped gas
Why was it fear and not compassion
With which I greeted him

Surely homeless, he must have slept ‘neath...Read More

Premium Member DEAR HEART


Ticklish wispy whiskers
I hear your faint whispers
In the dead of the night
Longing to be held tight
At first an echo soft and gentle
Sweetly sentimental
But you tremble with fear
That it will all soon disappear
Like a sand castle on the beach
Washed away out...Read More

Grab the keys let’s get into the car
Raring to go, we won’t travel too far
Everything’s packed inside the car boot
And I’ve meticulously planned our route
To the seaside for a treat this bank holiday

Everyone’s excited as we get on our way
Soon...Read More

The bus is full, and the kettle is on the boil
Three children are playing on the beach
One will be a businessman one will be an architect
And the third one will be a contrarian
Critical of the social orders.

FOOTPRINTS AND SANDPIPERS

On a recent walk along the beach…where the ocean meets the land
what captured my attention were all the footprints in the sand.

We watched sandpipers darting to and fro 
tiptoeing between the water and the land
pursuing their next meal…leaving...Read More

Running back and forwards to the car, arms full
Each trip stacking more "important" beach equipment in the boot
All packed, I go inside to lock the house up

Walking slowly along the beach,
That stretched as far as the eye could reach,
I heard above the seagulls screech.

Loud and piercing, the seagulls' screech,
Urgently hoping to beseech
Further sustenance for each.

It seems that mother seagulls teach
Their youngsters early how to screech,
As their...Read More

If joy could just be measured in a flower,
And happiness's worth by breadth of smile,
Or all life's pleasures fit into an hour,
What of my journey fits into a mile?

Then trod the land where...Read More
