Charis
Charis, a brightly coloured tomato,Out under the sun, playing hide and Seek. With no care in the world.Responsible! I don't want it mom,Or so she thought.
Charis, a hardworking student,With a zeal to be the best,And very much different from her...Read More

Angel Light
I stood in awe as she alighted like a bird upon some branch,
Belisha beacon to the abyss bound  clochard.
Bonfire for uncanny scion  adrift,
 ignited by her
incandescent eyes.
Chanteuse  of Arcadia  on song and sound.
Halo at the crossroads,...Read More

Love’s Music

If music be the food of love, play on;
play on, oh my Beloved.
Let the sweet melody of your song
fill the dark realms of night 
like the beautiful voice 
of a besotted nightingale.

Sing only for me …

Premium Member I'm Through Loving You
It's the end of our beautiful dream
The thrill is gone, for that reason...
I'm through loving you.

The nightingale that sings in my heart
for you has flown away, therefore...
 I'm through loving you.

There's no longer warmth in your smile;
no sparks in your...Read More

Because She Craved the Very Best
Because She Craved the Very Best
by Michael R. Burch
 
Because she craved the very best,
he took her East, he took her West;
he took her where there were no wars
and brought her bright bouquets of stars,
the blush and fragrances of roses,

Premium Member The Founding Father of Science
The scientist may assert there is no God,
While the sunset fields bloom goldenrod;
Yet, report of mystery dimensions unseen,
And multiverse based on vibrating strings!

But real proof of God rests in the heart.
If faith is genuine, He will never depart;

Premium Member A Mother's Lullaby
As sunset starts to prophesy
And kaleidoscopically vivify,
The day's agonies mollify--
To Sweet Mother's lullaby!

Ages have gone since the dawn,
But time still moves on and on;
Night lures as strength is gone,
And all fears have withdrawn.

This ancient song I know well;
Is one that...Read More

The Shattered Sarod


Locked lilac lips interweaved with the calypso of night,  
for whom the seductive song of silence the stars write.
Oscillating yearning serenades the barcarole of heart,
transforms the tenor of melody for the requiem to start
when beyond the broken sky the...Read More

Premium Member A Sweet Nightingale
 
With great delight,
out of the shadow night,
a low dulcet melody comes drifting,

a minstrel and singer with a chant, soul-stirring-
a siren of the dark, chirping and twittering,

such a soul-searching, fathomless lovely tale-
so beautiful and so frail,
sweet nightingale.

A cloudy summer evening 
Love stories just beginning
Feigning infatuations
Heart inflammations

Reasonable not to fall 
Yearning eyes tell-all 
Touch beyond doubt a crime 
Thoughts of beloved sublime 
A clandestine tryst 
Too hard to...Read More

Shadows flit in starlight.

Throughout my life you've cared for me
In oh so many ways.

Way back in childhood days.

And nestled in your cosy lap

With captivating stories as
Your voice lit up each page.

Arise, my little girl.

Listen to the sobbing air, smothered by

Perhaps in time, I’ll know hereby
When in deep sundown and the rain
 A nightingale brown tweets my pain;
In lone tempo, its forlorn cry.

This warbler perches on the sill
Muttering plaintive notes  for me,
 As hands fold to listen closely
