First and Last
First and Last
by Michael R. Burch

for Beth

You are the last arcane rose
of my aching,
my longing,
or the first yellowed leaves’
vagrant spirals of gold
forming huddled bright sheaves.
You are passion forsaking
dark skies, as though sunsets no winds might enclose.

And still in my arms

My Life

Almost sunset time
Why do I wait 
For the sun to take the dip
Sizzle and boil the sea,
Make me fear the night
And lose my sleep.

Like all previous sunsets
This one will pass too;
The sun will not get wet,
It will burn as before,
The...Read More

"Blind Man Turns"

Rest easy in my lull, Love

is not the gentle goodnight, Love

in the beguiling
silence of Lost Lovers' Woods

It is the war we 
all wager

in each other

We run from it
We run to it

The Labyrinth
we all are

striding fresh

Glowing sunsets of molten red and gold,
Heaven's picturesque canvas on display,
Another twenty-four hours have grown old,
Another farewell to another day.
Tomorrow once more sweet voice will sing,
Courtesy of our avian neighbours,
Wake-up calls that inevitably bring
Attention to our domestic labours,
To the beginning...Read More

Pink dawn-will reward with a smile. 
The fog creeps-a pocket of cheerfulness . 
Frost on the cheeks-youth balm , 
A hot summer day will set you up for a romance. 

You walk along the Avenue, and there is spring,

Nothing will abide with love's world but you
Time moves faster when the heart has a face
No hesitation from yearning will do
When a heart invites love's river of grace
And finds no end in its bright-colored banks
Where flowers grow and songbirds glide...Read More

Come here my dear, and have no fear,
My sad tears, fall silent on crystal stairs,
I take a deep breath, falling down the
Slippery steps, I get back on my feet, 
But my heart no longer beats, for my long lost

We danced violet nights into day,
And walked the sunny bay.
We dined champagne and caviar,
And drove far in your beautiful car!

Everyone noticed when we hit the scene,
Like actors on a movie screen.
Each hot party sent invitations.
Had friends in many nations.

I owned...Read More

Given the many threats I have made against God,
given my forgetfulness of God,

given that Tosca, that saintly hussy
who dwells in my head, given I have
created her from the whole cloth of my sacred,
scared and scarred ego; that...Read More

At seventeen he had fallen in love with her at first sight.
She ignored him the first two months of summer.
By the end of July they were frolicking together
As only young joyous happy couples...Read More

Sunsets aren't quite as bright;
And the flowers are all dying.
Miss you, tall, handsome knight,
As autumn leaves are flying.

Searing summer now a memory-
Soon we'll be together again!
Hope you often think of me.
I know you're not too vain.

Didn't we dance golden days...Read More

I See God
I see the colors of God
in the blue of sky, in
the glorious sunsets--
His passion on brilliant
display—I see His gold
in the swaying wheat
and in the blossoming 
glens, ripe with wings and
musical droning...

I see His constantly
changing shapes, my eyes a
pallet and canvas...Read More

that bathed the ground in apricot delights.
He had no dye or brushes, yet he drew
warm colours in the shivers of the night.

Endless sunflower fields

Like lazy ocean wave stretches

Touching the edge of the sky
Melting into hot noon brilliance
Boiling all shades of yellow into
One burning brightness of sun
