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 river has fallen since the beginning of time
Giving life to the Fern, the Laurel and the Pine
The rocks and the rapids share a fast dance
Over Rainbow Trout twirled in Spring's romance
The river bellows its mighty roar

i'm not dead
never knowing
the bullfrog
in my pond
if he has died

at night 
he never
croaks
so all is

silent except
crickets
quiet is
the only

rent to own
my bullfrog
decided to
break the
lease

he bullied
in and made
himself god
the ruler of

my pond now
he's since
declared it
so

but the leopard
frog before him
trilled to tell a
tale

and so not
yet mastering
leopard frog
speak

he retold
in his words
how wow that
pond must be

but due to
misinterpretation
of Babalon's
misunderstanding

i'm
waiting
for glossalalia

some like the
pond scum but
other ones don't 

our pond attracted
one of those who
liked but must not

have loved the

property he was

a leopard frog
from a simple
family finally

setting out on
his own and so
finding what 

seemed proper
property he set
to chirping all

Rockin Chair
Rockin Chair

I sit in my rockin chair
and think of things far and near.

Things like the weather,
and whether I want soup or salad for dinner.

I listen to the birds sing,
and think things, that make me dream.

I watch butterflies float,
And hear the...Read More

I sit in quietude; with the moon as my light
its fickle glow obscured by calico clouds.
The air feels heavy,
as silence adds its weight to the brumous glume.
A bloated bullfrog croaks curses
failing to attract an empathic ear.
And the blahs block the...Read More

Gardens Golden
Gardens of golden threaded Cyprus;
evergreens perfume sings me halfway to sleep.
I breathe in the wafting scents of neighbor’s roses;
with elation my spirit weeps.

The drumming of leaping goldfish in a pond nearby calls to dragonflies and they zip by me; lovely...Read More

Premium Member Doctor Please Hurry
A bullfrog jumped into my eye socket today.
Pushed my retina aside, and was clearly on his way.
I can feel him jumping around. My sight is blurry.
Doctor, please come quick, as if you are in a hurry.

Premium Member When I Am Double Crossed
The new neighbor challenged my bullfrog, she challenged my pet flea.
She challenged my happy T-Rex, but she forgot to challenge me.
She smacked my baby’s monkey, she made me unnecessarily mad.
She poked me in the eye, and she made my family...Read More

Dragons Pets
Yet another dragon, we had to get
And he just had to have a pet.
For whatever reason, he chose a frog;
So we took him to a bog.

He cared for that frog, 
as if it were A beloved dog.
My Great Aunt Mae,...Read More

The Mississippi
I once was a river,
The magnolia trees reached out there branches just to get closer to me,
A Mockingbird perched in them and tried to mimic my soft gurgling,
A black bass swam across my light blue back and a bullfrog alighted...Read More

Music On A Summer Breeze
Through the highlands, you can hear the pipes drone.
Every note, riding on a crisp, morning breeze.
In-between, the piped notes; you hear the drum beats.


I go to bed each night, completely beat.
But, I’m often kept awake by the cricket songs and...Read More

A furry little caterpillar
Crawled onto my knee
He turned into a butterfly
And landed in a tree

Beside him was a humming bird
Sucking pollen from a rose
When down fell an inchworm
That landed on my nose

A little baby bunny rabbit
Hopped onto my lap
When I...Read More

Premium Member Busting Their Spleen


Everyone has a giggle trigger it seems
If you pull it, just watch the happiness beam
Their smiles will be broad
Like a big old bullfrog
They'll wind up howling and busting their spleen

A Walk in the Wood
Strolling thru the wood on this warm summer night,
Enjoying the breeze in the waning light,
Lilac and pine are filling my senses,
Primrose and Morning Glory climbing the fences.

Barred Owl and Nightingale are questioning me,
Glimpses of deer now easy to see,
Off the...Read More

Bully, Blow Hard and Old Geezer
Bully, the bull dog thought he was tough
He barked until his owner had enough
Bully went to the pound
A disgruntled old hound
He had a name change...now he's called "Scruff"

Blow Hard was a very ugly bullfrog
Sat in a pig sty on a...Read More

Reptilian Delight
It wriggled neath the thick dark mud
A small tadpole not yet a stud 
Arms and legs not quite formed
Eyes still blind head deformed

Covered with a coat of slime
To keep him warm and alive
No more time to eat or drink
Sleepy eyes...Read More
