Premium Member SOMEONE IN THE MIRROR-
Someone's in the mirror?
I see his face, his hair!?
I see him standing here!
Now if I turn away;
Now the wall I see:
What should I say?
Guess it's just me I see?
someone's in the mirror
In the mirror I see me

Buds Forever

Shorty was a little dog, 
Curly was too. 
They played every day, 
until there was nothing else to do. 

Rolling on the grass, 
digging up the garden, 
chasing butterflies
and frogs near the pond. 

The days are full, 
of everything...Read More

Ode to a Land of Wonder

I walk a journey through shady forests set aside 
Where sunbeams slide to earth on airy pillows 
Where verdant green nestles all about the ferns
In emerald hues to mirror rows of leafy greens
Then turn to...Read More

Snow White - The New Conclusion
A weeping mother sits and sews,
Pricks herself on her thumbs and toes,
For some reason, she thinks of a child,
Red lips, black hair, and sweet smile,
A couple of days later, here's Snow White,
Sadly her mother passed away that night,
Her father remarried,...Read More

Wonderland
Wonderland
by Michael R. Burch
 
We stood, kids of the Lamb, to put to test
the beatific anthems of the blessed,
the sentence of the martyr, and the pen’s
sincere religion. Magnified, the lens
shot back absurd reflections of each face:
a carnival-like mirror. In the...Read More

Optical Illusion
My slumbered eyes in endless night hours
make shady groves of translucent memories. 
Outlining  contour of crescent moon, 
dark figures meander my muffled thoughts. 

The starry sky suddenly changes
from turquoise blue  to champagne color .
Half in light, half in...Read More

How does one write poetry
One step at a time
by placing one metrical foot in front of another

Let me walk you through it:

Iambic is a lamb and the smallest of the lot – ta dum!
Trochaic is the Trojan horse of iamb hiding in a mirror...Read More

Clouded Love Slam
A hex,
A spell of dark magic
In witches cauldron to stir

Not for death
But rather to suffer well

In this life not the afterlife

For crimes against my broken heart
that brought me to this place

I wish 7 decades of bad luck you trace
the cracks...Read More

"Between the Pillars of Black and White"



You sit alone in your power
between the pillars of 
black and white
holding your book in hand

The words are your keys
not the mind of some libertine
an interventionist morai fate

Better Love

This is one of my most treasured songs. 
I've grown very fond of my PSoup pen pals and gals. 
Thus, I'm would love to share
a most intimate part 
of this Romantic Warrior heart.



With butterfly thoughts,
I open my eyes
each day

Polish
Polish
by Michael R. Burch

Your fingers end in talons—
the ones you trim to hide
the predator inside. 

Ten thousand creatures sacrificed; 
but really, what's the loss? 
Apply a splash of gloss. 

You picked the perfect color
to mirror nature's law: 
red, like tooth...Read More

As Memes Diffuse

Mirror, mirror from the wall to online

Respond, rewrite, re-integrate the theme;
Prompt for contest is becoming a meme.

My Wish for Her
I wish for my daughter
The greatest capacity for love.
I wish that she finds strength
Most can only dream of
I hope that she loves
With reckless abandon
Sharing faith and compassion
Always at random
Spreading joy where most needed 
Teaching others how love is seeded

The generous spirit

Mirror
by Kajal Ahmad, a Kurdish poet
loose translation by Michael R. Burch

My era's obscuring mirror
shattered
because it magnified the small
and made the great seem insignificant.
Dictators and monsters filled its contours.
Now when I breathe
its jagged shards pierce my heart
and instead of sweat
I exude...Read More

The Broken Mirror Of Time
Looking through the broken mirror of time, 
I visit times and places from the past.
To have loved never should have been a crime; 
Yet, somehow I was always thought of last.

The fragments grow smaller as time moves on, 
And seven...Read More

Endless sunflower fields 
Rhythmically swaying in the wind
Like lazy ocean wave stretches 
To the distant line of horizon
Touching the edge of the sky
Melting into hot noon brilliance
Boiling all shades of yellow into
One burning brightness of sun

And there the story might have ended

Buckled Bills Boasting
daedal delight dangling
saucy skirmish smoldering
dainty dark drooling
nauseating punctured puking
of salient smirk
la-de-da limbs lurched

buckled bills boasting
lanky lust lustrating
felon feast fondling

eyes etched'n fear
hoisted hankerings' shear
taunted thrill tears

punctured parley pulses
wielded wild whooshing.

Black to White, Black to White
back to front, front to back

a pale moonlight
passions rising

Its Getting Late
The darkness is drawing closer

Has become the summation – the totality of our lives

Extremely anxious of what’s to come
Our existence - fighting...Read More
