The Strange Truces of King Arthur
The Strange Truces of King Arthur
by Michael R. Burch

Artur took Cabal, his hound,
and Carwennan, his knife,
and his sword forged by Wayland
and Merlyn, his falcon,
and, saying goodbye to his sons and his wife,
he strode to the Table Rounde.

“Here is my spear,...Read More

Slug Aviator
Crimson baron,
the scarlet fumes from your tale pipe
paints the sky 
with steel blue dye

Duke of the corporeal death plane,
your splatter reign
brings a barrel of spitfire pain

As you hide in the cadaver clouds,
waiting to vulture dive 
like a mercenary bird of...Read More

Sharp eyes
and sharper wings
with the speed and accuracy
perfection brings
when a falcon cuts the sky in half

My heart sings

looking down the steep decline

Her predatory eye,
the single feral iris,
Her raptor beak,
all jagged sharp-edged thrust,
Her hard talon,
clenched in pinched expectation,
Her clipped wings,
preened against reality,

The gentle buzzing sound echoed memories of a fading childhood

When she and her cousin had whispered secrets at the mosque

About undying love and first kisses before being stung by a bee

‘Honey, don’t worry they make nectar and ambrosia is sweet’

The art of love is largely the art of persistence.
The rose speaks of love silently, in a language known only to the heart.

Poems can be jubilant spring
Melodies caught, lyrics to sing
Hope's revival, heartbreak's surcease
The joy of ink-stained paper's crease
Reposing grace on summer swings

Cathartic burn - sweet biting sting
Feet-blistered walk through fiery rings
The repressed flame and cold release
Poems can be

Falcon's Song of Songs
For a daring young hiker, Ellen Cole,
sudden downfall of rain blocked clear light
and a small cave became her warm, dry hole.

For months to come, no daylight fell, 
her woodsman-husband labored and lined
that same cave with ivory for her grave;
his futile...Read More

Anxious and stressed
Unable to breath

Some peace you need
Take yourself right away
For the whole of the day
To a place of solitude and calm

Some so rare and unheard
With binoculars held in your palm
An owl

Falcon Ready

Sore with precision in their flight

A hunt begins on hunger pangs of black
Grows from the dawn of times survival
Launched into action with the talent of God
Towers over the enormity of...Read More

The Falcon
I'm sitting still.
Like a statue.
Indifferent to everything around me.
I'm just an element of the scenery.
It’s like I’m not even there.
So come out! There’s no danger! 
Just a couple of steps. A few more.
Yes! Almost there.
I'm sitting.
Tense as a bowstring.
Focused on...Read More
