Dragon Misunderstanding
Dragon, on a little trip 
to visit friends,  let it slip that,
we’d gotten him a pup and 
he had named it, Mr. Mup.
Now the neighborhood dragon-kind, 
In front of our house, formed a line.
They wanted pups of their own;...Read More

Snow Child
I am a crystalline winter faerie
and I build each snowflake
from tiny drops of water.
Magician of the chill, am I;
each drop I touch, freezes just enough
to hold together building a snowflake.

Billions upon billions
of snowflakes I will build
with each winter storm;
I take...Read More

The Tender Weight of Her Sighs
The Tender Weight of Her Sighs
by Michael R. Burch

The tender weight of her sighs
lies heavily upon my heart;
apart from her, full of doubt,
without her presence to revolve around,
found wanting direction or course,
cursed with the thought of her grief,
believing true love...Read More

Thysia- Sacrifice
Oh! those gods of ancient times who looked kindly upon this land-
and its people- it was from their hearts we toiled while they dwelt silently among us- they who witnessed the blood we shed.

Oh! how we cried out their names...Read More

“What will you conceive in me?”—
I asked her. But she
only smiled.

“Naked, I bore your child
when the wolf wind howled,
when the cold moon scowled ...
naked, and gladly.”

“What will become of me?”—
I asked her, as she
absently stroked my hand.

Dynamos of Goodness spin and spawn off good
Christians may be expected to seek perfection
But what exactly is it ("Obedience not sacrifice," says the WORD)?
No, not perfection but multiplication
Never ever reaching perfection in this world

Love once shared, now a forgotten past
Time spent together no longer cherished 
Slowly, we began drifting apart 
Each person withdrawing into a shell we thought was gone

Gradually, hatred began setting in
Communication seemed a Herculean task to perform
Promises we’re broken
Trust became...Read More

Watching Aldebaran
The sweeping lunar curve
Away, away with you

Going up the stairs
I, amidst brown frogs,
Turn into silver dew drops
The bloody horns
of Taurus
Melting into the jet black sky

Dark fragrant stillness
Incinerates my bones
I am bleeding purple daemones
Like a holy mollusk from Tyre

Wrapped in bull...Read More

and I could not see a romance while yet I was to roam.
With resignation, I told the Fates - my search it was suspended;
they smirked, for 'twas the long game they...Read More

I hate Christmas music
It just makes me loose it.
The melodies of the blues. 
Children are playing
Families are laughing.
I sit in this cube
Silence is the tunes
That rumbles to my mind 
That is permanently brusied.
Stare into my eyes
Gaze into the light.
The window's...Read More

Fussy and mean
The anger of a
Immature person
Leaps and bounds
Mind you in descion
Anchored by ones lack
Of devotion
It is perfect because it
Is his
Wanted because it was
Seen as unobtainable
Kindness makes you smile
Desire makes you want
Linger first in frustration
Circumnavigate to explore

True meaning of Christmas in danger
many have no concept of the manger
Santa comes on big
with his reindeer gig
while Christ is a total stranger.

I Saw The Tree Sprites Dancing
Upon a wood-walk, evening
I saw the tree sprites dancing.
Lovely sprites, in fall dress;
whirling, twirling to the tune of the autumn winds 
and I couldn’t resist, I just had to dance with them.

Perhaps the others walking with me, didn’t notice
or maybe...Read More

Virtues and vices
Rights and wrongs 
Too entangled 
A war is fine
Kill for peace
Unable to judge
As virtue just died

Wrongly blend

Or love to hate 
Sums up in hate
Self confused.
