Lady’s Favor
by Michael R. Burch

May
spring
fling
her riotous petals

torn,
when the last rose is left
inconsolably bereft,
rudely shorn
of every device but her thorn.

Kin
by Michael R. Burch

for Richard Moore

1.
Shrill gulls,
how like my thoughts
you, struggling, rise
to distant bliss?
the weightless blue of skies
that are not blue
in any atmosphere,
but closest here...

2.
You seek an air
so clear,
so rarified
the effort leaves...

Poetry
