Loose Knit
by Michael R. Burch 

She blesses the needle,
fetches fine red stitches,
criss-crossing, embroidering dreams
in the delicate fabric.
 
And if her hand jerks and twitches in puppet-like fits,
she tells herself
reality is not as threadbare as it seems ...

Frisky, gray squirrels scramble
Beneath a massive, old oak tree
Gathering the best acorns they see
Their fluffy tailed, lively damsels

Opossum wobble on short legs
From their laurel sheltered lairs
Toward the thickets where there’s
Vast bugs and spiders in their webs

Gentle, soft haired rabbits assemblage...Read More

Premium Member Black Bear Up A Tree


A black bear climbed a tree.
The tree
was not in a suburb,
more an un-walled hiking space.

A concerned cell phone monitor
caught the bear up a tree
while it was being a bear up a tree.

This cannot stand.
A bear up a tree,
almost near to...Read More

It’s summer on the hill
With Day Lilies surrounding the house
Hummingbirds buzzing and chirping
Other birdsongs warbling in the trees
The black bear wandered slowly by
Then, rushed into the woods from noise
Shades of green everywhere to see
A slice of life, a peaceful place...Read More

Premium Member Visit to a Mountain River
Summer is here with its extended day light
Mountains are giving up on their accumulated stock of snow piles
The river is gushing with vigor carrying fresh cold water supply
Its dancing bubbly liquid is glittering in the sun’s sparkly stimuli
She comes meandering...Read More

Premium Member The Black Bear Effect
The Georgia black bear roamed around
Looking for food to eat
Maybe a place of warm safety
And some edible meat

Inside the warm house he feels safe 
But a woman is there
It was his mistake to choose this place
Into other's eyes did stare...Read More

Weather forecast so frightful, so scary
   It removes from this season the 'merry'

Howling winds and blowing snowdrifts
   Force your car off the edge of a cliff

Visibility of less than half and inch

I once lived in high Montana

But Roddy didn’t grow it long

Roddy was a history nut,

The Critter Cascade
I was walking down a Vermont road
to stretch my legs and blow off stress,
stone walls flanked the hard, brown dirt,
half-obscured by dead leaves and grass.

When a fast rustling caught my ear,
I turned my eyes left to see,
exploding over the rock...Read More

And great foods to eat

I’m so happy you could all come out
to walk these woods today,
it’s important that we commune with nature
and hear what she might say.
For the trees must be our brothers,
and the animals, sisters dear,
we must from them try to learn
