A Vain Word
A Vain Word
by Michael R. Burch

Oleanders at dawn preen extravagant whorls
as I read in leaves’ Sanskrit brief moments remaining
till sunset implodes, till the moon strands grey pearls
under moss-stubbled oaks, full of whispers, complaining
to the minions of autumn, how swiftly life...Read More

Light of the Devil's Chord - Day 39

That whisper of the night before struck me powerfully, 
It affected me more than I intended to admit
Hades—stupid Hades, a follower, loyal enough—
But nothing to compare with the suicidal, lovely
Red glow of Death’s betrayal— and to ME!...Read More

Premium Member Eyes Like a Rose II
Peace in the garden,
And she smells of the rose;
Shes's dreaming.
Dark eyed drifter,
She's got eyes like a rose;
Like velvet...
Hale sweet dreamer,
She's got eyes like a rose;
And captivating!
Lying limp and lovely,
In repose-
A kiss awaiting.
Doves above milady,
She's got eyes like a rose;
So dramatic...
Lying...Read More

Premium Member Useful Mini Bunnies Between My Toes
There are mini-bunnies in between my fleshy toes
They live there in miniature rose bush that glows.
I watch them sometimes, amazed at their grimes.
Hopping between my big toe with green slimes.

Carrying passels of baby bunnies on their warm backs.
They visit each...Read More

My hands to give for you to warm
Songs to play the choice we made
Steps so slow to hold the love you gave 

Silence of room crowds of eyes
Doors of pain voices of verse

It’s more usual for a man to propose
on bended knee with a ring and rose
But I asked my boyfriend and when I arose...
He said yes!

Rise above the swirling waters dark recess.
Rise from deep within the water’s pounding press.
Slowly rise above the centered womb
While tossed by storms
And spun by icy currents;
Break through the surface tension
Inch slowly, with measured rhythm
Through black, to blue to aqua light
And...Read More

A heaven's guardian angel dose plays
The silk golden lyre's beauty and repose.

Docile strings tenderly, caressed on rows.

I haven’t the heart just now to flay 
your skin, consume your flesh; you are 
too beautiful to eat. The rose-pink dawn
of your skin conceals your molten
gold sweet flesh. Your depths the pith 
of sacred trees.

Your shape has taken possession...Read More

Can two flowers fall in love you ask…
when a heart they haven’t got?
But in love…if anything is possible…
I have to ask…why not?

From Death to Life
A leaf on a big tree was happily hanging 
Favorably for every passer-by just to see
He was appreciatively coloured green
Like a bean, he was very much attractive

A treacherous wind rose up to shake’im fall
Forcibly, on the ground he landed green
He...Read More

It rose as if by heart's desire;
For a morning aglow, a need was dire.

And down it poured;

Jesus sacrifice
3 nails, and a cross.
Jesus' victory was no loss.
He had sacrificed himself and paid the cost.
For the wretched and the lost.
Thorns pierced the crown of His head. (Matthew 27:29)
Pouring out the Precious Blood that was shed.
Whipped with ropes of glass...Read More

Morning is blooming
chrysanthemum sighs
Rose petal kisses
on daffodil skies
Apricot petals
in tulip display
Jasmine aromas
to start out the day

Buttercup giggles
beneath maple trees
Gardenia melodies
scenting the breeze
Peach blossom whispers
of marigold hue
Happily saying
good morning to you

The Music Stops
The jaws sing
As the drip, drip, drip,
Of the petroleum chorus
Dances across 
The inverted aluminum
And the hissing starts
And the hissing stays
Its smell a warning
A final omen
Like the last rose
Of summer
Or the fragrance she wore
For that final goodbye
The teeth tear inward
Like the...Read More
