You’ll always find me smiling

by Jem Croucher

You’ll always find me smiling
when the sunshine shows its face
Particularly in its summer warmth
with evidential grace
I’ll find a little corner
where I’m sheltered from the breeze
and spend some peaceful moments
‘Cos they’re always there to seize Continue reading

reminiscing
rummaging through memories
from the past
like it was a trunk
of keepsakes and souvenirs
the treasure chest of time
just waiting to be rediscovered Continue reading

Starving homeless beg for food
While monks drive mopeds. Continue reading

Planet

by dharkanein

The only blue planet, soon going to be barren

The greens we see, tomorrow will disappear

Warmth increasing day by day swallowing the life.

Windswept leaves are tousled in the breeze.

As passersby traverse under branches high.

Fall Welcome

by J L Hunt

Cool breezes & hot cider…

Pumpkin pies & cozy fires,

Freshly picked apples, filling baskets…

Warmed toes under thick blankets

Fallen leaves crumpling under our feet…

Children going trick-or-treat

Fall, welcome…

Welcome, fall  ©JLH

Oregon Summer 2017

by Alanna

The summer left Oregon in haste

Like an old friend that paid a visit

Then had a falling out

The rains of autumn quickly came to take her place

Quenching the land’s thirst with violent downpours

The possible seems always impossible with me, why?

YOU

A needle in a haystack
A voice amidst noisy crowd
A star that hardly shines
A taste of finest whine

Changeable Conditions

by Jem Croucher

Big sky over Leigh-on-Sea
dramatic to extreme
with rain clouds scudding twixt the blue
amongst the best I’d seen
The sunshine when it finds the room
is very warm and bright
But the rain squalls cool that down somewhat
So I’m glad I dressed up right Continue reading

on the memories of yesterdays  Continue reading

Piss Fight

by Rhyme In Time

“He’s a madman!”
“He’s deranged!”
So Trump and Kim
In piss fight strange.

They each need timeout in the corner,
Each of these unruly scorners.
Where’s the kindergarten teacher?
Asleep somewhere beneath the bleachers?

Do they think it’s arithmetic,
To seek out who’s the bigger dick?

Nine bells

by Jem Croucher

It blew nine bells again last night
But you’d never know this morning
As, when the night time clouds had cleared
A lovely day was dawning

The sun was bright, the sky was blue
and the wind had disappeared
Something of a respite
from the cooler day we’d feared Continue reading

no welcome platform

moment in time,
Now   Continue reading
