Love Again
Oh she fell in love in Georgia
when she was but passing through
He was young and he was handsome 
Like a cowboy she once knew

He was sittin' on a barstool
In the Come Back Soon Saloon
While she was singin' on the stage

HEAR the quiet sea
SEE the man looking for me
ME hiding from him
HIM with simple eye
AYE his words I hear
HEAR the quiet sea

FREE yourself from sin's grip
GRIP hold of the real life
LIFE everlasting...Read More

Come, You: the death poem of Ranier Maria Rilke
Come, You
by Ranier Maria Rilke
loose translation/interpretation by Michael R. Burch

Come, you?the last one I acknowledge; return?
incurable pain searing this physical mesh.
As I burned in the spirit once, so now I burn
with you; meanwhile, you consume my flesh.

This wood that long...Read More

Premium Member Death of a Fairytale
The witch adds each morsel of magic, spice to her frothy brew.
Her wailing drifts, fog across the moon, 
each fairytale severed and torn.
With tears, overwhelmed with remorse, she tosses each penned page in.

She cut out all the well-worn fairytales (happy...Read More

Living in the creek’s dark caverns, he was content with his homestead.
His dwelling place had been foretold 
by fairytales on nights so cold.
A promise of the things to come were all that kept the fires fed.

Premium Member Gypsies

Across a misty channel
Sensor fingers
Through foggy, silent waves
Where two souls embrace
In expeditions of speechless discovery
Two minds stand naked,
Face to face,
With wordless words
Each knowing the inner rhyme 
Of another soul –
Intimate outside skin and limbs.

Across the barriers of minutes, hours, months
Two...Read More

Are you able to sense it if even not keenly aware
Some may be unable to admit what has long since been in the air
Each day getting more dark as the density of evil wades through
The new contrast being so stark...Read More

To Torch And Burn
Masquerading in a church full of dreams,
all parishioners in their pews

The preacher straightens his mask and starts,
a sermon old renewed 

Hellfire and brimstone come roaring out,
 words to torch and burn

His face staying hidden as the nightmare unfolds
—the congregation’s dreams...Read More

Premium Member The Green Valley Wood Incident

I'd been working overtime one hot august night
And finished about nine thirty; the sky was still bright
Took a short cut through woods at the edge of town
Was looking forward to a hot shower and a lie down.

I passed the empty...Read More

Mastications In One Movement

Lathering on the ranch dressing, 
mixed with honey mustard grunting;
these inhaling engorging souls are
finding the emotional precipice, 
high up and dangling,
hanging by french fried ropes, 
smothered in thousand island arrhythmias.
here come the fat waiters, 
pushing arteriosclerotic meat...Read More

Dear home
Dear home,

I've searched for you for a long time now,
I've looked under the bed,
Under the carpet,
Behind all the doors,
Yet I haven't met you,

I've ventured souls deep,
To see if you were there,
I've poured myself out
To deceptions of you,
To find they are...Read More

I cover myself with the graces of your heart;
While deep inside me is a child lost;
I open up wide my mind thoughts;
While redeeming myself at all cost;

Closer that I am to you;
The more than I allow you;
As I receive...Read More

Premium Member GRIEF
I'm damaged and broken,
unable to fight.
My days are now spent,
in the absence of light.

My hearts black and blue,
from what I can't control.
A big empty space if you will,
a large black hole.

A place with no laughter,
a place with no touch.
Missing her...Read More

Now this month was called Solmonath
the anglo Saxons gave it this name
to mean the month of cakes no less
offered them to their gods being their aim

This is no favourite time of year
at least not in the North Hemisphere

The life of a fire wife is an interesting one indeed.
I'm proud to stand by a man who helps those in need.
On call 24/7, fire radio's always on

My dad always told me imagination is like a muscle
and we have to find a way
to exercise it often or its strength will fade away.

He said imagination is like a movie inside your head
only you control the show.

come all through

before the
sun rising

this is path
for the remembrance
with flowers

they all died for us,
mother tongue
for country peoples

I'm independent
today none can force to speak
in another tongue

this small flower oblation
from me for honor
though they did great for us all

from that nineteen fifty...Read More

Anonymous Passersby
rock hard ribbons string
cracking cobbled roads
hoards harmonize 
with hidden steel chains
fractured silver mirrors reflect 
an absentminded people
and ambivalence marches through

cloaked the anonymous labor
along grey stone city streets 
cross crumbling avenues

broken beleaguered faces
the blind fail to grasp
the revolving refugee

plodding shadows...Read More

As sadness and pain take their toll
When my world seems so out of control
This is my prayer…

I dance my truth
From the corners of my soul
And she laughs

Not funny I think
But it is, and she calls me on it.

I twirl and whirl with expectation
In a frenzy for what might come of today

Swinging my bliss to and fro
