Because Her Heart Is Tender
Because Her Heart Is Tender, for Beth
by Michael R. Burch
She scrawled soft words in soap: “Never Forget”
dove-white on her car’s window (though the wren,
because its heart is tender, might regret
it called the sun to wake her). As I slept,
she...Read More

Wood burning stove weather
While outside nor'easter
howls like banshees
vents temperature dips
into low double digits
fire breathing friendly
dragon (cue Barney

purple dinosaur)
crackling hearth,
yours truly snuggling
close proximity warming,
thawing, quelling...
cockles and muscles

atavistic visitations hover
brushes within subconscious
purring, mew zing catacombs
kickstarting, harkening,
dawning... Homo sapiens
lion eye zing forebears

dormant memories thaw
predators vastly outnumbered

A Balm So Smooth
I’m feeling blue, but that’s OK
For I was there to start the day
But carried forth with steadfast calm
Still searching for a healing balm

I’ve found it but a time or two
And known relief, but far too few
Like pollywogs or canyon wren
It...Read More

The Prayer Meeting
The Prayer Meeting

I felt a raindrop on my brow;
Twas just the other day.
Out in the Pasture all alone, 
By myself to pray.

The rain fall oh so gently:
I felt the grass beneath my feet.
The wind rose sweetly round me,
On my little...Read More

for Beth

O, terrible angel,
bright lover and avenger,
full of whimsical light and vile anger;
wild stranger,
seeking the solace of night, or the danger;
pale foreigner,
alien to man, or savior.

Who are you,
seeking consolation and passion
in the same breath,
screaming for pleasure, bereft
of all articles of...Read More

8 word contest 9 Widows Mites
The banker didn’t see me,
but I saw.
The bag behind the bush contained
Clothes. Food. Memories.
Everything that was left of an indigent life.
Forced to part with all their worldly possessions
for a moment,
perhaps to pee, perhaps to eat, perhaps to beg for widow’s...Read More

I am gliding through the forest, not a care in sight,
Wings back, swooping and darting, showing off
Knowing my wren relatives are not noticing at all
But not caring to please them anyway.

All about pleasing myself today. Gorgeous temperature.
Water nearby. Meadow affluent...Read More

Premium Member The Butterfly
Once there was a butterfly 
Who wished that she could soar—
She was quite adept at fluttering,
But longed for something more.

If only she could be a bird,
Like an Eagle, or a Wren—
How proudly she could touch the sky,
And be admired then.

But...Read More

We have a bird feeder on our porch we fill with bird seed every day
We love to watch the different birds visit…the cardinals, the wrens…the jays

But every time we fill the feeder we painfully become aware
how the squirrels also like...Read More

The Dragon of Dark Harbor
There is a harbor, dark and still, 
That formed ten thousand years ago. 
It lies upon the western sill 
Of Grand Manan, in indigo. 

Seagulls soar above the cliffs. 
Puffins nest on jagged rock. 
From herring weirs, in island skiffs,...Read More

Poetic Verses, Words Composed, To A Wren

They have not taken thee, thou art too small
To tinge their fancy with a moment's flush;
Thy safely lieth in a ruined wall,
Thy plainsong blendeth with loud water's rush.
In dusky shade thy duskier shadow flits

Mueller Report Equals Unexpected Coup For Trump
Much to my chagrin
barely discerned, noticed above
the celebratory Republican din
the commander in chief
all smiles with engined

haired cohorts evincing
ear to ear tousled grin,
feather in cap for apprenticed
president and kin,
which exemption, sans suspected

See the flirting of those eyes;
He's angry at the emprise;
Finds hard to see his girlfriend;
Shadowed by weak bitter end;

She is but an active mouth,
As she sits in the deep south;
The dove likes to chase a pen,
One that's in the...Read More

Oasis Of Ecstasy In Word Morph

Rise of scorched sands up in the desert air at noon

frail slope ripe for sliding holds on, doesn’t know why.

Life is full of small amazing moments

Garden of life
What more delicate than the singing of the birds as they flutter and stumble,
Sweet as apple crumble
The wren and the robin, heads a bobbin, squabbling over fallen sunflower seed
Each his need
The bigger they are, the harder they fall
Better luck next...Read More
