The world in its glory, glittering gold.
The future, present and past will unfold.
The greater good, lesser evil; look at all these wondrous people.
Freezing winters, raging storms; keys to paradise ever shown.
Bone to bone, war to war; humans are not ever...Read More

Seated in the kitchen
This tap keeps leaking, one drop every six seconds, I must fix it, I hate plumbing, but water's so precious, flowing like those days spent at workplace, freezed moments nurturing me. I can't decide myself, water and days, stuck....Read More

The Sick
Now, gone
The yellow sunlight 
of this morning
Packs of food on the table
That come slowly as plot
When I know about death
I want to laugh lustily.

The fault in our minds
Salt and sea breeze rubbed against my skin,
The soul left my lungs to inherit it’s win.
I looked around and found aesthetics in the dark,
Captured in polaroids , memorising my own heart. 
The reality is what I don’t allow them to...Read More

Death may end all, but starts new beginnings.
Every downfall is just a new winning.
Look into the mirror you saw.
I’m sure you’ve seen everything withdraw.
It lingers in the dark like shadows.
Awaiting, awaiting; those whom are hollows.
It can be random, it can...Read More

Noob Goes For A Walk
Noob goes for a walk in a straight line
The distance from point A to B is easy
But going only half way as required 
Going half the distance all the time
Is not so simple as Noob might think

For life and death without one there will not be the other,

A holy man's head was lost in the clouds
His abstruse reasoning made him so proud
   He pondered all day

No Mark
No Mark
by Michael R. Burch

A wave implodes, 
impaled upon
impassive rocks...

this evening
the thunder of the sea
is a wild music filling my ear...

you are leaving
and the ungrieving
winds demur...

telling me
that nothing returns
as it was before...

here where you have left no mark
upon this dark
Heraclitean...Read More

Holding eight of the seven keys, which can unlock thy seven seas.
How many keys? Eight of all these, lingering touch as it’ll be.
I travel here, travel there, travel far and by the air.
The seas, seas, seas, tis where I’m meant...Read More

Fire, fire it burns so bright. 
It has orange flames within the night.
It burns with fury, science and light.
The heat of the flames lead none to shame.
I'll tame the flames, within a single name.
Claiming all of the flames, I'll scrawl...Read More

Hemlock or the power to mock
What killed Socrates.
a weed or Aristophanes?
What caused an end so dire?
The law or just satire?
The cries of ignorant crowds.
or something in 'The Clouds'?...Read More

A voice is sought
Loud and clear
Echoing through crystal caves
Roaring as the waves

A voice eternal
A voice supernal
A beacon of hope
Sight to blind grope

Yet, sun after sun
And, moon after moon
From father to son
Years devoid of gospel

The bonfire of hope
Flickers and loses flames
With...Read More

A thousand mistakes yet greater successes, look at all of your progresses.
The world you’ve yet to adore and explore, a single thought leads to an open door.

Stepping Stones

Invest one’s words whilst
Disengaging spent brain mode;
Discover Haiku. 

Walk midst new flora,
Engaging sensory brain;
Discover freedom.

Test out thoughts anew,
Embracing strange views unleashed;
Discover mercy.

Follow trekking stones,
Entranced with fierce, sleeping giants;
Discover courage.

Look askance at
Passing points of brutal pain;
Discover heartbeats.

Feel pure cashmere shawl

Philosophy constraints contain

Umbrella broken in the rain

Constantly losing

You are so beautiful
You are so beautiful like Helen of Troy
So brainy, special, and unique
Nobody can compete you

She was lost in her own eyes

Vedic legends in centrifugal swirl,
whirling, twirling across this world,
in and out through many planes;
counter-active, gravitational things.

Vimanas high in nebulous skies,
legendary, ego-driven butterflies;
worlds are conquered, worlds undone,
according to ancient, mystic tongues.

Upanishads and Samar, Mahabharata, Ramayana;
even in the Samaranganasutradhara;
words have power, words...Read More

Political intoxication
Facts now have alternatives to fortify an elite’s status
Truth has lost its authority

Principles abandoned as minds become amorous to like-minds
Intellectual treachery

Corporations have frozen the status quo
Arrested ideology

Anti-capitalism is pretentious and treasonous
Distrust the politics, kill the new entry

Religion is a sanctuary...Read More
