The story I told my son in bedtime 3 : Apple
There is an island having a lot of apples
A boy live there
Oneday, all of these apples lost
The boy is finding them
He looked around all over the island
He didn't see them
So,He went to the sea
And when he reached somewhere of the...Read More

Hurting Invisibly
when you look at me
you can see straight through
you may bump into me
you'll just keep walking
even if i drop everything
so i walk through these halls
little more than
an observing ghost
i take notice of your faces
names i don't know
though your eyes are...Read More

Jed the horse thief was a bit of a dope
Stole a pretty horse and tried to elope
Folk declared him a horse thief
And for giving them much grief
They dangled him at the end of a rope...

When I look through
My telescope I can see
The burning sun
As it lets out
Radioactive rays
That spreads throughout
The universe
Affecting our planet
It also sends out negative rays
That interferes with people
And the environment
It affects the weather
Sea levels and crops
Causing the unthinkable
To the atmosphere
And human...Read More

future warning
I’m sending out this message
To warn everyone
About the future of earth
The cities is about
To be covered with water
The polar ice caps
That’s be frozen solid
For thousands of years
Is melting
The melted ice
Is turning into water
Causing the sea levels to rise

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

Pondering a Winter Dusk
I ride the bus...

Tilt a bit, balance-
ponder later. Yolk yellow 
and sky blue, chalk

grey paint. Steel
rectangles; winding parallel 
lines. Circles- Eternal.

Toothed horizons-
golden rose shaped sunset
tauten, its nectar 

steeps; blushes. Inks gnarled
columns of trees, dusky, their
limbs webbed crosses

open to royal skies...Read More

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

In February
Illnesses besetting
Parents aging
Chilled waves of anxiety
     buffet the shore
Thunderclouds dampening
     soil and spirits
Cellos, subdued in minor sonority
     play Eleanor Rigby in my mind
Painted ponies gnashing

Premium Member Happiness is like a golden shawl
The pebbled beach  on which we walked at dawn
The sun was dancing  singing  stone to stone
The sea was pale as silk and gently ran
The tide was coming in, the day began

Why is my memory so deficient here?

and the sparkle of the sea reflected in your smile
Once I saw all our yesterday's, and all our tomorrow's
captured in our hearts

So He’s there to forgive me when on Him I will call.

Each season spans a quarter of a year
cold winter days can bring pure white snow,
Wintry sunshine makes snowflakes disappear
but little children don’t want the snow to go!

fragrant freesias release their sweet smell,
Many colorful flowers...Read More

A piece of plastic around world

there are butterflies under the sea
and fish in the air today
willows wept over the moon
and stars giving

where words 
lose their shapes
with their spurs
and fingers with lips

The sea
Rowing in the wooden dingy,
My arms recall 
The lost days 
Of ocean voyages,
And all at once I remember 
The emerald green 
On night watch....
And the midnight sound 
Of dolphins breath 
Those princes of the sea 
Who were enamoured
With our...Read More

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

Ode to Nematodes
Oh, nematodes, in your abodes,
From soil to sand to sea,
You live with others, loads and loads,
Most scientists agree.

Your worm-like shapes allow escapes 
In places cold or tropic
Though some of you avoid most scrapes 
Because you’re microscopic.
