Premium Member Everyday Is A Cliffhanger
Each book in my library must be read, each one, each and every one,
vagrant, homeless papers must find a forever home, I must
edit, amend, revise, reword and condense a poem-
Rattled, I search for my keys, oh collywobbles!
Yearning for tranquility instead...Read More

Moth Haiku
A light soft flutter
Faithfully carried a moth
Intent on escape

Left the world behind
Through the light and to the moon
She flew quite softly

Flying by and by
Only to see what awaits
Across the night sky...Read More

Songstress, for Nadia Anjuman
by Michael R. Burch
for Nadia Anjuman
Within its starkwhite ribcage, how the heart
must flutter wildly, O, and always sing
against the pressing darkness: all it knows
until at last it feels the numbing sting
of death. Then life's brief vision swiftly passes,
imposing...Read More

I wish for things with a great thirst;

like, I wish to be a writer;
and make my words fly and flutter.

At the Doorly Zoo a well-trained guerrilla waves

Gorilla flung his manure like a combat soldier in guerrilla warfare
No one but the ground keepers are there, MAN DOES IT SMELL

Go, go my dear butterfly
On to the garden of flowers you go
Don’t ever funk to flutter in wind
'll be watching your funny leaps.

So gracious from flower to flower
Gliding and swimming through the air
Rather than flapping your little wings

Impassioned Decline
At the shrinkage of the page
Expressions plead for length
Inhibition imposed on lines by columns
Words already accustom to scarcity
Pieces find focus in incompletion.

Thoughts flutter toward temples
Ready to leave prints on a canvass
Diving into ink, drying before depart
Leaving smudges with hints of...Read More

Premium Member flying with the birds
 to fly where a hundred birds flutter and chirp,
you must let go of this earthly realm . . . 
and take a step without legs into the unknown

gnarled old

Premium Member HAIKU WAY 8

Moon in brief arc
Casts brief shadow;
Solar eclipse


Morning offering
Dawn glimpses light;
Hope starts anew


Feisty wordplay
Rhymes echo tell;
A new verge brink


Unknown glimpse
Odd outlook;
Hint in the rain


Softer than touch
Whispers echo;
Words left unsaid


House on the hill
Lost in the mists;
No one returns


Funny fact
Riddle tact;
Cut more slack


Jazzy...Read More

Premium Member Flower Power Peace Signs from 1972
Unicorns, witches, hippies, faerie pirates too.
Interspersed among dragons, bunnies, a castle of blue.
Ghostly apparitions that say how do you do?
Strewn around the living room, my art so woo-woo.
Psychedelic colors amazing, and I don’t mean a few.
Come see for yourself. They...Read More

I am deep as an immense ocean,
calm, serene as a tranquil lake;

quiet as a new dawn;
I weep like the rain,
flutter on wings;
like a bird

Love Letter From My Soul XIV

Winds capture then release
open with appease
flutter in the tease
and deepened trust

motion, flirting with an ease
flickers, a jaded breeze
the rush of a sacred sea
overcoming impossibility

wet, more than water streams
filtering the cracks and every seam
molten gold, we're burning red
engraved and alive
entrenched inside

a flutter, a drop of rain

a fleeting moment, perpetual bliss

a look of wonder in my eye
i vow to never...Read More

      'cause of feelings it gave;
where there is emotion within the words,
that flutter and fly off the page like birds.
