Sonnet III
The first soft snows of winter falling now;
Clinically cold, the wind cuts like a knife.
The surgeon's scalpel deals a final blow
To the numb fabric of the summer's life
Whose yellow lingered in the autumn's leaves
And warmed my hopes and brightened my...Read More

New and Reused…Wrappings

Paper,
blue, green and red, 
yellow and gold together, with bells. 
I dream about all the holidays, 
that have passed by, 
since you left. 

They have been good, 
and bad, and hard and full.
Many were also empty. 
Some were...Read More

If the color blue was sad
Would it be black?
If the black lost it’s color
Would it be white?
If white married lavender purple
Would it too, be blue?
What about brown and yellow
What’s procreations due, would the children be orange
For what’s at stake;

Get Thee to the Whitney
Get thee to the Whitney!
It’s the one thing you should do
If you’re in New York, to see
The kitchen made by Liza Lou.

It’s a life-sized recreation
Of a room each person needs,
But the fridge and stove and table
Have been topped with shiny...Read More

Premium Member Gazing
Gazing over the land
the verdant mist of becoming
moist with the dew of life
glistening in the yellow rose warmth.

Gazing over the land
golden stalks of being
heavy with the fruit of life
swaying in the red orange heat.

Gazing over the land
brown in the existence...Read More

I Kept On Walking
Of an august-like, autumn day:

I kept on walking
Bespoke in dust-coated
Check jacket,
Check pants,
Polo-neck jersey ...
I rambled destinationless:
A la les sapeur - 
The gods,
The directors,
Were focusing on me - 
Me the starring only
As

I kept on walking
In all my sartorial glory, consciously
Deadened unto...Read More

A Rainbow Memory
When my hollow present blows
The dying embers in the heart grate
A fond childish Cinders glows up

The frozen black memory melts past colours,
A sparkle of rainbow recollections,
As I walk up on our trodden pavement
I saw a slash of sea between houses

She and I
A lady in a white dress and a yellow hat,
All filled with a fragrance of the preeminent perfume,
When I hold her tight with my bare hand,
She makes me content full of amuse.

She is the best healer and companion for me,

Black Friday,
iconic of Climate Fragility,
is designed to transition retail
from red

end of year balance sheets.

Black Friday
is black

wealthy

from a competitive corporate perspective.

What feels too seldom noticed,
This capital-acquisition game

Premium Member Ring A Ding Ding Ding
The rinky-dink ringmaster was a ringleader.
His yellow perched ring-tail cat had a ringside seat
His sassy ring-necked eagle had a ring meter.
His knowledge of Ring of Nibelung could not be beat.
He called his circus the Rinky-dink Ring-a-Ding-Ding-Ding.
We sat in ringside seats,...Read More

SLAUGHTER OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE

and you're  a cop, it takes a certain kind of heartless cowardice

it takes a certain type of racism only prevalent in racist countries

Walking by the sea
 
Walked along the sea-shore
The breeze from the sea filled my lungs with goodness
The pavement was flat and smooth.

I'll find you one day
I'll find you one day

you calm for the sun rising in life...Read More

Fall into spring
Anybody out there
Anyone at all

Behind the hills in shades of pink
Orange and yellow across a sky once blue
Encouraging the sun to sink
It brings me joy to feel the crisp autumns kiss

~The Cradle~

Leafless arms extend full length.
Embracing in their curves an empty cradle
Tucked into a cozy arbor still lingering
With the scent of apple blossoms full grown
Crafted from borrowed twigs, a stolen yellow ribbon and
Pillows of soft green moss
That cradled three tiny...Read More

The Composition of Shadows
The Composition of Shadows
by Michael R. Burch

“I made it out of a mouthful of air.”—W. B. Yeats

We breathe and so we write; the night
hums softly its accompaniment.
Pale phosphors burn; the page we turn
leads onward, and we smile, content.

And what we...Read More

The Monk's Walk


They walk in single file beside the river.
Five young men heads newly shaved,
their saffron robes washed so frequently
that orange has turned a saffron yellow,
a yellow seen in temple lamps at dusk.

They gather under a broad Tamarind tree
for shade and rest.
