Likes humour, walking dogs. Politically very cynical. Twitters constantly @ericburrows.. My only belief is Nature and the Universe because I am here. I think!

What Isl

I know what makes the skies so blue
the mountains climb so high
but I know not
from whence I came and what’s my goal
I only hope I have a soul
to fly

(150 characters incl. spaces)


The Mind

Paradise is in the mind
when asleep
we sometimes find
a wisp discerning
dissolving like a morning mist

(118 characters incl. spaces)


Never Know

Drinking beer
watching box
removing clothes
final socks
climb in bed
sorry sight
under blanket
pull it tight
wonder what
I’ll dream tonight

(139 characters incl. spaces)



Time in dreams
a teardrop lands
building castles
made of sand
holidays in sun and rain
I am that distant child again

(117 characters incl. spaces)


Lights out

Dream at times of someone
so very very bright
who lights up our living landscapes
but will never make it through the night
The light dims

(137 characters incl. spaces)


Not forgotten

Some dreams can upset your day
of loved ones that have gone away
but at times they leave a yen
make you want to dream again.

(124 characters incl. spaces)


Cold Dog

Dreamed it was snowing
really hard going
cold to the marrow in fog
woke up freezing
started sneezing
duvet pulled off by the dog

(128 characters incl. spaces)

#micropoetry #veryshortstory


I dreamed I flew over
the White Cliffs of Dover
the Pyramids at Giza
The Seine
next day at dawn
the dream it was gone
I wish I could do it again

(144 characters incl. spaces)


The end

Evolution has its way
I think we have had our day
but what comes after
maybe dafter
who can tell
and who can say?

(113 characters incl. spaces)


Dreams love

Dreamers dream of many things
bizarre sublime of queens & kings
but dreams to cherish which I do
romance and love
are dreams of you
