yet still the seeker cannot ken those signs
until his heart becomes exposed to light…’

our sentient being is crucified as a weakness.
Its signs are writ upon the...Read More

To Please the Poet
To Please The Poet
by Michael R. Burch

To please the poet, words must dance—
staccato, brisk, a two-step:
so!
Or waltz in elegance to time
of music—mild,
adagio.

To please the poet, words must chance
emotion in catharsis—
flame.
Or splash into salt seas, descend
in sheets of silver-shining
rain.

To please the...Read More

Holding on …soothing music…...waiting, patiently,
Then I could sure, hear a voice, calm and flat.
With some precise questions…
Questions... indeed, there will be a genre always. Likely.
Wandering moments float by, lives bonded with legit answers.

As I was answering those questions,
Somehow, I knew...Read More

There’s nothing finer, in a sense,
Than certain words in present tense.
Words which are incredibly,
Etched on your mind indelibly. 

Immaculate, petulant, magnificent, sinew,
Incredulous, superfluous, to name just but a few.
Sacrament, procrastinate, intestate - may seem,
Draconian, Dickensian, obsolete, obscene.

Gratuity, embouchure, gnaw with...Read More

Time has told
time has told 
as days grow old 
either shy or bold 
people's hands unfold 

to show who they really are

some belong  behind prison bars 
others gaze and meditate towards the stars

Premium Member Slumber stalks him
His head droops
listless mid-day
Waves of heat
Collar damp
shirt clings
Seconds drag
Minutes, eternities
Knees rain perspiration
Rivulets of sweat 
in between the lines
His pen, heavy
ink drains
eyelids heavy
slumber stalks him

To travel the round edges of the planet
To swim the pacific and fish the Euphrates.

A mist drifts listlessly through a softly dozing sky,
A breeze whispers kisses to a swallow passing by,
A lover caresses his lady's silken hair,
Easing its tresses through the blissful air.
Some sheep bleat meekly on the hillside slope,
A horse moves somewhere at...Read More

onomatopoeia
Sipping sangria
I ponder this thing
called onomatopoeia 

 Tinkling wind chimes.
The echoing ping-
plates placed one on another

and other such sounds.

The  bong of steel bells.
The beep beep beeping-
a phone off its hook.

And I am blessed 
to belong to such
melodious sounds.

And I...Read More

The crazy kitten purred.
Its soft and slender  body 
Brushed around my skin.
It meowed as it juggled 
The ball of woolly yarn
All about the living room.

Pouncing on the little mice.
It wondered about...Read More
