Premium Member I heard a bird singing


I heard a bird singing
As I was on my way
It led direction for me
As it took my breath away

It warbled cheerfully,
From a tree above the snow
It spread its song gleefully,
What kind of bird, I wanted to know

I heard a bird...Read More

Daffodils and My Ageing Aunt

I try to visit her at least once a week
for lunch, or take her shopping, then spend
a few hours listening to a waterfall
of repeated small talk soaking my brain
and wearing away my endurance,
but pretending to hear for the first time....Read More

Crazy Horse's Naming Vision
Crazy Horse's Naming Vision
by Michael R. Burch

Earthbound,
and yet I now fly
through these clouds that are aimlessly drifting...
so high
that no sound
echoing by
below where the mountains are lifting
the sky
can be heard.

Like a bird,
but not meek,
like a hawk from a distance regarding its...Read More

Premium Member The Edge of Summer
I hear a distant, gay twittering,
Night's at the edge of the moon;
I see the butterflies flittering,
Spring waits at the edge of June!

I see the myriad blooms invading,
Crowded to edge of forest green;
In their glorious colors parading,
At the fragrance of noonday...Read More

Premium Member Done To Death
The forensic expert, garbed in GREEN,
His HAIR carefully concealed,
Had attended the murder scene
For whatever secrets it might yield.
A BEAUTIFUL woman now lay dead
In the BREATHLESS SILENCE of the night,
Her HEART had maintained the slightest THREAD,
But now was still, gone was...Read More

Holding eight of the seven keys, which can unlock thy seven seas.

Premium Member Sonnet I
I’ve watched TV so long it’s broke my brain.
Arising from my chair I pace the room.
There’s nothing here to bind my mind in place.
No music here to break my silent state.
I wander to my study filled with crap.
I wonder if...Read More

Neither was it a wrong time when I met my fate

Another day’s dime in my pocket

I was confronted by a flood tide of an angry crowd

Orange Dumpster


If the world was full of parrots and 
they all just lived on carrots, 
What would a hybrid be called?
Would it be bald?
Of course silly
We'd have flying birds, shooting orange coloured turds?
In other words
Don't drive around in white cars!...

Premium Member Oliver, a Boy
When I was young my mother's hand
Led me through a joyful land
Where neither war nor hate exist
Nor something more I must resist 

Where nothing but the night is black
And black is never dark for lack
Of something bright or greater light
But...Read More

A Lone Bird
A  lone  bird  soared
high  in the  sky

flapping  gently  his  wings.

Flying  farther  and  farther
at  last he was not seen
in  the  distant  horizon.

Then  I...Read More

A Penny For Your Thoughts
As I toss a silver coin into the mango contoured fountain, a lilac laden tone
that reeks of flower garden ether archly probes.

Psychic or clairvoyant

Premium Member End Of Day
Glowing sunsets of molten red and gold,
Heaven's picturesque canvas on display,
Another twenty-four hours have grown old,
Another farewell to another day.
Tomorrow once more sweet voice will sing,
Courtesy of our avian neighbours,
Wake-up calls that inevitably bring
Attention to our domestic labours,
To the beginning...Read More

Where she flew along , on the wings of the dawn without the restrictions of her cage 
A beautiful place designed for her, a wage

What it Did
Four o’clock sure comes quickly
The early bird gets the worm
Meetings at 6:30
I’ve worked so hard for all I’ve earned
 
I was focused on the future
Trying to build my legacy
Rising to the top
I lost all sight of you and me
