   A poet writes to please himself

Premium Member Easter Eggs and Seashells
Like Easter eggs and seashells,
I collect them
scattered dubloons in gypsy gold
Brushstrokes of verse by hands more able
to decorate, and brighten
My barren table

Bountiful fruit from other fields
As smiles compel, 
As lament heals
They are the beauty I borrow
The flowers I water

They are...Read More

Retrieving The Lost Silence


Not all the poems I read entice me,
hold my attention long, reach my heart.
The ones that flow like sparkling streams
over the cascades of rhythm, I adore most.

The current of words carries me floating away
from the cacophony of banal whirlpool of...Read More

What became of the poet named Gregory Paul

`

Does anyone know,
can you tell me at all
What became of the poet
named Gregory Paul

At Soup for a while,
then no longer here
A blink of an eye,
he did disappear

I did hear a rumor
of hate being spewed
By another poet
so little have viewed

And one...Read More

Goddess
Goddess
by Michael R. Burch

“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.

Creation's Holy Spirit
Just because I create does not mean I feel I’m God!
That’s an atrocity of men, who wish to be in charge
Not women, who for ages have seethed beneath
the accusations of men accusing Eve, tempted by a snake
so magical, it talks!...Read More

Men Of Emotion
Have you wondered
Or given any thought
To the Words of Wisdom
The late poets have brought
Poems full of Magic
Meaning and Emotion
They wrote with Insight
Feeling and Devotion
Most of this Literature
So exquisitely penned
Is not written by women
But by compassionate Men!...Read More

Premium Member The Way Of The Sword
If memory was paper
Were pens as sharp as swords
Writers would be soldiers
Pure poets likely lords

If poets starve on streets
While warriors slay the hordes
Greed often slaughters souls
Death strums its chilling chords

As night turns into day
The brave shall shine our way

Poet, No Longer Will I Sup at your Banquet
My eyes were sorely struck when once they perceived
verity in your insightful words. Oh, how they grieved
when you chose to kneel low enough to kiss the ring
of a cunning being, whose unmerited praises you sing

WHICH POEM TO READ?

Adore a poem that fascinates and entices me
Touching each heart string with sadness or glee
Poets that pen imaginatively and bring,
Fantasy to life, love poems now that's my thing,
Then, look for a read with breath taking scenery!

The Peripheries of Love
The Peripheries of Love
by Michael R. Burch

Through waning afternoons we glide
the watery peripheries of love.
A silence, a quietude falls.

Above us—the sagging pavilions of clouds.
Below us—rough pebbles slowly worn smooth
grate in the gentle turbulence
of yesterday’s forgotten rains.

Later, the moon like a...Read More

Renditions
When I read other Poets submissions
They fill me with awe
The best interpretations
The like I've never read before

Is to write a poetry book
As I look at others poetry
My confidence it shook

I enjoy writing
I write mainly in rhyme

The Selfish Poet

Posts their work, eat comments
as if at a feast.
But close their pen, when it
comes to a reply?
Inimitable,arrogance divine!

Do they in mirrors all day look?
Admiring only their face and poetry?

Am joyful to know that most here surely
