New Poems

by Michael R. Burch

There was a moment
  without the sound of trumpets or a shining light,
    but with only silence and darkness and a cool mist
      felt more than seen.

The Poet's Heart
The poet never asks
for rhyme with reason,
this would be treason
to a romantic heart...

All good lyrics
play their lyrical parts--
true writers and players 
true to lyrical hearts--

and lovers having taken 
that forever vow, will not
their hearts beat alone, for
never has been written...Read More

New News Old Death
Death has reinvented himself:
He rides a cream coloured scooter,
Surfs the net, runs wild on Twitter,
And claws with fleshless hands the breath
From souls sharing a hope of life.

Death has reinvented himself:
He stacks up bone beads in columns,
New and clean and clearly...Read More

Premium Member Sylvia's Flower Garden
Musky fragrance inundates
my nostrils as I enter 
the garden center:
a rhapsodic feeling
in idyllic surroundings.
The air is humid
like an Amazon garden,
heat barely tolerable
making my glasses misty.
Soft music, dulcet and sweet,
swamp the amazing conservatory. 
The caterpillar had shed off its chrysalis,

Premium Member Cruel Fire
Cruel fire, a paid woman,
Beckoning with a rubied fan,
Wantonly she glitters and glows,
All scarlet-clad bravissimo.

Cruel fire, a bold courtesan,
Temptation is her talisman,
As her sparkling lures she throws -
Cruel fire.

Cruel fire, harsh partisan,
Danger lies taut within her span,
She is a scorching...Read More

Premium Member Burying Superman
“Never give an inch boy,”
a drunken uncle once told me.

It sounded like a spell
to ward off vicious dogs, rabid priests;
any jackass or villain with crooked eyes.

Superman is a plastic 3-inch-high figure,
a talisman I keep in my jeans pocket.

Premium Member Wrapped in a Bow
Wrapping your present with a pretty bow
I wrap my love secretly inside
Tucked in your left breast pocket
Yours to have as an everyday talisman

To warm you against cold winter days
Make you laugh at silly mistakes
Caress you during your silent slumbers
Wake you...Read More

A Poem Of Diversity

My love has been diversified
to enter in another world
of beauty alien to me
and filters change forever more

I left my bubble to explore
A  culture of diversity
and gleaned the lore expansively
to find a rhythm to engage

romantic straits began...Read More

Stroke the flame and let me heal
Kiss my talisman

Something that laughs at definition 
Breathes only in depths of amber 
Whispers through branches

Premium Member Bougainvillea

Beneath the ashen cloudless sky
the rain subsided to reveal
a plant is budding from its womb
with many colors  to behold
of orange, pink and peach or white
 the cerise petals paper thin 
they cling and climb with such embrace
the sun has...Read More

Snarled Inside The Illusion
When yesterday left, today I'm a little right. 
This is a tad bereft, yet full with almight.
Misconceptions or misinterpretations, either way it's confusion. 
Dreaming of incarnations, incantations snarled in the illusion.
Mass produced catholics, should be forgotten inside their cathedral.

I dove into a cauldron
Headfirst into a brew
I needed a phoenix talon
To wash my heart anew.

The witch & I are friends
He gave me his talisman
We wrote out names in blood
On a tree our names engraved.

Running through hemlock groves
Swimming through moonlit...Read More

The Red Umbrella

Incessantly the rain poured down
It’s thrum continued as a song
The street, a wet and somber scene
A ghetto with an ashen view
But held in contrast to to the sight
A red umbrella has a mate
The hand that holds it very...Read More

Premium Member Night Street
The dank petrichor of grainy night,
meters stand like gravestones, 
the obsidian avenue slick as a sapphire,
windowed granite rising in sharp cut shadows,
wind gusting, tumbleweed clouds somersaulting 
in a moonless ghost town.
I jingle keys with atonal sky
and listen to my footsteps...Read More

Premium Member Luna
Born in violence and fire
She is nothing but death


She is the muse of muses
The poetry of silence 
The song of the night

She is a hypnotist
Seducing the seas
A wily mirror
Stealing sunlight 
To feed the dark
A talisman of romance
And womanhood 
And all...Read More

But how even more strange, it is the moment you feel them as
If you have known them your entire life.

Hey Man
Hey man
Why are you always on my mind
Here and there, once again

At a Distance

Afar off you stand,
fearful of me
because of what ... 
the color of my skin?

At a distance (you deem safe)
do you judge
the worth of me
As you live in gated comfort
of isolation

Wearing a white suit of 
fruit salad honors,
pressed to the breast
are...Read More
