Upon our first meeting, fear ran to my fingertips.
Within a few choice words,
The tingling became the titillation of lust.

You opened a door, its hinges rusted,
its boards warped by time.
The sirens in my soul sang to me, warning of the danger
yet...Read More

Premium Member If You Don't Want Your Money
Very rarely will you ever see,
anyone who hates money more than yours truly.
"Well, If you don't want your money,"
they say to me constantly,
"you can always give it to me."
They don't even hear themselves sadly,
not realizing that money, are the chains...Read More

Just Passing Through
Bang! Bang! Bang!

Shattering windows and, smashing glasses 
Sending people pouring out in the street
Gun shots penetrating the clouds 
With a message that is very loud

People are running and screaming around

Chaucer translation: Merciless Beauty
Merciles Beaute ("Merciless Beauty")
by Geoffrey Chaucer
loose translation/interpretation by Michael R. Burch

Your eyes slay me suddenly;
their beauty I cannot sustain,
they wound me so, through my heart keen.

Unless your words heal me hastily,
my heart's wound will remain green;
for your eyes slay me...Read More

MELANESIAN ARTS FESTIVAL
We wore our meri blouses
And on stilts built our houses…
We carried our bilums so beautiful
And custom dressings so very colourful.

We wore our island dresses
And displayed our art in richness…
We played our native string-band
And drew creative designs on sand.

We wore our...Read More

Blackberry bushes barricade the background
of your immature stature.
Braided chestnut hair rests gently 
on weakly shoulders, 
as your hazel eyes beam a child's rippling wonder.
Bee glazed berry juice permeates your smiling cheeks.
The taste streams alive as I gaze upon you

I RAISED MY VOICE
I raised my voice…
My voice to say what I believe;
To show others what I perceive,
But you tormented me in grieve.

I raised my voice…
My voice to show I matter;
To prove I wasn’t least nor latter,
But you discarded it as idle chatter.

It’s so odd,
how time expands and collapses.
In doing so, 
it scatters the timeline shimmering across the sky.
It left me crumpled,
Surveilling the kaleidoscope that was my life.
Waiting for someone to chance upon my path
and remake the sense of it all.

As we traverse in happiness of euphoric thoughts
Exuberance of sunrise permeates our avid hearts
Holding hands of leisure on hushed idyllic grounds,

Where pink lotus-blooms lift-up in pristine pond
Floating stilled moments in beauty of white swans,
Embracing day’s serenity awakening in birdsongs.

Prawn soup!

I own the whole eatery. 
I drove miles to be here.
The aroma and warmth, 
Makes me drool to eat here.
I can never resist the prawn soup!

The sour taste

All galaxies abandoned

borne through fire

I can’t wait for the day

If you have sense 
Do sensible things

Do rational things

Without pouring them

SECRETS, ARE REALLY TRUTHS
DELIBERATELY NEVER TOLD.
OFTEN DISAPPEARING
BUT NEVER DIE OF GROWING OLD.

LEGENDS ARE RESURRECTED
AND PASSED ALONG WITH TIME.
OFTEN REAPPEARING, IN VERSE
AND SOMETIMES RHYME.

LIES ARE REALLY COVER UPS
OF WHAT THE TRUTH'S ABOUT.
PURSUED BY "THE" TRUTH SEEKERS
THE REST ARE LEFT TO DOUBT.

In February
Illnesses besetting
Parents aging
Chilled waves of anxiety

Thunderclouds dampening

Cellos, subdued in minor sonority

Painted ponies gnashing

I am not loved anymore.
After so many years.
It ended, how, I'm not sure.
Time of sorrow and tears.

I am not loved anymore.
A loss that devastated me.
A pain not felt before.
I saw what I didn't want to see.

I am not loved anymore.
