Hank gave his cat a bit of a boost
Determined to have some eyes out there
Was it dark? Snowing? Raining?
What did you see? He asked Piewacket hopefully.

Snowy white owl sat by me the other day
My power animal, what can I say?
I had no thought at all to shoo him away
Actually I invited him to stay

I thought he could help me with my feng shui
He scared my...Read More

Premium Member Smitten with Kittens
My doggie had kittens just the other day.
How it happened I just can’t exactly say.
It happened underneath my front porch there.
When I found them all I could do is just stare.

Never before has this ever occurred.
To all others it sounds...Read More

cats are evil creatures from space
are evil creatures
from outer space

who can understand
their alien thoughts
where they came from
and why are they here

are they part of an advanced team
will the cats some day
take over the world
and turn us into their slaves

I have no answer
but when i see...Read More

The race
It's fast paced
The race makes me an ace
Like cat and mice in one day
Sugar and tea on another day
Temples shudder and mosques cry out in pain
Make peace or life will never mend...Read More

It's Halloween
It's Halloween!
by Michael R. Burch

If evening falls
on graveyard walls
far softer than a sigh;
if shadows fly
the sickled sky,
while children toss their heads
uneasy in their beds,
beware the witch's eye!

If goblins loom
within the gloom
till playful pups grow terse;
if birds give up their verse

Premium Member Loving Mrs Red
She was stylish in every color, but especially red.
When she wore it, it became exotic and proud
Not haughty - regal, majestic.
Which is why I named her Mrs. Red.

I met her in red, knew her in red, and buried her in...Read More

Cloud watcher, tea drinker, dog walker, cat napper
I love summer twilight, dawn fog, and banana cream pie

I feel tangled, fragile, and tentative
I fear unwashed hands, unheard words, and unforeseen...Read More

much more than diamond  
pearled in a mere reflection

mirrored she flashes by  

fluttered flight, naked thru shadows  
shuttering amid a hint of light

thrashing tales
to the feeding frenzy
de rigueur, 
someone’s torn
they can smell the blood
pointing fingers in a mirror
writing with burley
on their star studded
glowing wall 
craggy oysters salty, grey 
and green 
furry mouthed
blunt, stunted minds
lacking wisdom
scattering imperfect pearls
their sharp siren songs piercing

One o’clock tick tock
It is night and sleeping is the cock;
Tick tock went past two
The cat on the litter doing the poo;
Three o’clock all asleep;
From the mobile phone a message bleep;
Four in the morning;
The wife dreaming;
Five and I wake up

This world, never ours alone, but shared with other creatures great and small.
The Earth turns and the new dawn comes, and will long after we're gone.
A Sandpiper flitted along the shore and told me so.

Premium Member After a Heavy Rainfall

Banks did not burst, 
just a full bladder of river leaking
into our back yards.

It drooled over 
the low steps of high roots,
into groundhog holes,
into the ditches where winter debris
had already washed-up.

As the water inched
we made phone calls to each other,
imaginations...Read More

Crazy curious and coquette
Animated little angel
Teensy teeming ticklish twister

Calamity’s the name you earned
Antics and abounding energy
Tempestuous and turbulent

Charismatic with deep crystal eyes
Affectionate and audacious
Tinsel loving thoroughbred kitty

Capricious and comical 
Arrogant and absurd
Tenderfoot teasing thief

Casanova with my heart 
Adorable little ball...Read More

The House Our Fathers Built, The Woman and Her Almost Husband
The heirloom, Neo-classical, Palladian, almost as old as light, was mine from conception, so, when the latchkeys were placed over Simian crease,
