Autumn's Auburn Rustic Dust

When with closed eyes in Autumn's eves of gold,
She breathes in the blades of orange-yellow,
Looking for that 'something' called auburn rust,
Halting mid suntanned trees hundred years old..

Who is like her, amiable yet bold?
Tenderly she walks on slivers...Read More

Premium Member The girl with blue Aruba eyes


She stood amidst the tropic breeze
the girl with blue Aruba eyes
Between the fruiting mango trees
neath pastel sunset shimmered skies

Meandering this summer’s eve
we stroll the shoreline hand in hand
Where lemongrass and grottos weave
and footprints wander in the sand

Alone this twilight paradise

New Year's Resolutions
NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTIONS (from a dutiful husband for his loyal wife)

I’ll promise in the year ahead
To never, ever fart in bed,
Nor say how she should get thinner
At our anniversary dinner

To she who’ll wash my underpants
I’ll whisper words of sweet romance,

Ordinary Love, a Villanelle
Ordinary Love
by Michael R. Burch 
Indescribable—our love—and still we say
with eyes averted, turning out the light,
"I love you," in the ordinary way
and tug the coverlet where once we lay,
all suntanned limbs entangled, shivering, white ...
indescribably in love. Or...Read More

Skinny Dipping
    Hot nubile maidens in the nude,
    All extroverts with attitude.
    Curvaceous figures well endowed,
    Slink down the staircase heads unbowed.
    Provocative, with open arms,

Premium Member Sandcastle on the Beach

Sandcastle on the Shore

*Poem based on Richard Harris's
singing, "MacArthur Park."
Like a child, playing with wet sand,
I tried to keep our sandcastle
together with these very small, 
dimpled, suntanned hands.

But the ocean waves coming in,
were infinitely far stronger...Read More

Dry Skin
There was a young lady from Clyde
Whose skin was all puffy and dried
She smeared it with grease
Suntanned it in Greece
And now it's all puffy and fried

Premium Member Sunny Hours
I only tell of sunny hours...
Sundial yeoman;
Suntanned sentinel 
Stand watch,
Shedding tears for unrequited love.
My cooling shadow stalks sun;
Caresses with timely sunscreen
Sweet sundial’s gilt Egyptian face.
Ask me time of day;
“Shadow knows,” I’ll say.
Shadow will not rest
‘Til sun does nest.

Sans Solace
Near the end of the movie Quantum of Solace, Bond, dumps the villain Mr Green in the middle of the desert with two cans of motor oil.

Starved spiders scamper traverse suntanned sand,
Slumped in a...Read More

Sugar Mama

I need a sugar mama
someone to take care of me 
let me drink in the bar 
drive her Porsche car

when my pockets don't jingle
She'll always spot me a couple of bucks 
She'll never ask where...Read More

Summertime - haikai - haiku
dawn a flash of light
summer sun escaped the clouds
a blink in time

sparrows twittering
fledgelings begging to be fed
a watchful cat

warm westerly breeze
consolation for no sun
the warmth factor

summertime blinked
one-day last year a Monday
July the tenth

suntanned my body
fake news in a bottle
binned sunglasses

Beautiful 2 --- My Harbor and Sea

	Gentle waves of raven locks lap against the shore of her skin,
	Soft, suntanned arms beckon the dusky light on the horizon,
	Angelic radiance to her form.  Cleansing sin,
	A dying shadow, behind, fading slowly as the night summons.

	Twilight in her eyes,...Read More

I stare at her reflective glass.
Like a crystal ball I see the past.

The sea, precociously sails, toward shore.
A curious imp of a child is he.

     The waves, like whirligigs, with laughter roar.
   There’s no other place i’d rather to be —

where sequin splashes, touch the wind...Read More

a patch of, alluring sea

the gentle waves, the searing sun
with all of nature, I am one

my aches and pains just drift away
on healing breeze that's come to play

nomadic sands in search of home
caress my body as...Read More

By the roadside, 
I saw a knave, suntanned, cloaked in dirt
who, standing upon the ground, 
like a famished hermit, 
held out a bowl in his hands,
and sang a strange song:

Premium Member Forever Bright
I think about the field of grass I lay in once,
between Main Street and river's edge 
July, in fact, a first recalled
before our lives had wedged apart

When thinking back of summer's scent
the air smelled clean, and strands of green,
would bend...Read More

Independence Day
Beachfront condos shrouded in the early mist 
of morning. Seagulls hanging on the breeze, 
their screeching waking sleepyheads 
before their coffee, it's July the 4th, 
the holiday is here! 

Sailboats daubed in milky opalescence 
growing clear, as sunlight nibbles at...Read More

Through the louvered window
The moonlight slips in furtively
Barring her flawless suntanned skin
Musky fragrance pervades the air
Stirring the mind with anticipation
Mellow sensual intoxication.

humidity’s heaviness . . .

The Stone Man
His heart was cold, cold as stone as
he sat staring straight ahead. He
had white lines from squinting painted
on the sides of his suntanned temples.
Even the wide brimmed hat he wore
couldn’t protect his face from the sun
which seemed to burn like...Read More

Ancient Warrior
I see the wrinkles in your suntanned brow,
You carried burdens then; you see them now.
You’ve heard the cries your people who in pain,
Have shed their tears two hundred years like rain. 

Your sad brown eyes, reflecting now the sky
I see...Read More
