Verdant again

by Jem Croucher

6 of 12 in the ‘Spring series 21’ from Jemverse

 

Luxuriant this time of year

the grass is verdant green

and unless I am mistaken

looks the best it’s ever been

It’s thick and lush and lovely

and loves the Springtime sun

which bathes it in a golden light

until the day is done

A pocket of Springtime revisited

by Jem Croucher

5 of 12 in ‘The Spring series 21’ from Jemverse

 

Sitting in a pocket of Springtime

warmed by a welcome embrace

breathing in deeply the fragrance

feeling the sun on my face

knowing the winter’s behind me

forgetting the long months of chill

looking forward to summer

promising warmer days still

Playful

I playfully watch butterflies
and blossoms yellow, blue.
Forgiveness came with joyful cries
and life turned bright and true.

Indicative too

by Jem Croucher

4 of 12 in ‘The Spring series 21’ from Jemverse

 

Indicative of summer

the Springtime grows and grows

it’s getting warmer by the day

as only April knows

The light has changed, it’s brighter now

and days are longer too

more growing time much needed

brings colours into view

Noise

by Frank Hubeny

There’s nonsense in the stuff I hear.
What once had order, now there’s noise.
The blatant dare of fake destroys
the shield we fashioned stopping fear.

Apocalyptic times are here.
We need full armor for this fight:
the truth, the doing what is right,
the peace and faith, salvation, too,
and God’s own Word. Let hearts renew
and face the darkness with this light.

I am thinking of Ephesians 6.

Green fronds, nature tells

there’ll be sun and then bluebells

Green of April leaps to Spring

~ Words Ring Hollow

amongst the constant chatter

the do this, do that

unsolicated, unwarranted

I’d chew the words

seeking a marrow of wisdom

if any of it

was grounded in reality

Easter’s grace

by Jem Croucher

Shadow of your crown of thorns

up there on the wall

contrasted in the sunshine

and captivating all

Easter in reflection

the people bowed and prayed

silence as the Spirit moved

and precious vows were made

And kneeling in the quiet

the sun became the Son

as at Easter his forgiveness

fell there on everyone

STAINED GLASS LIGHT

by thereluctantpoet

By Charles Robert Lindholm.
2-28-2017. At 6:30 a.m.

I see the image of Jesus
In the darkness of the night
Extending love to everyone
Through, the stained glass light

STAINED GLASS OF JESUS WITH OUTSTRETCHED ARMS 40 PERCENT

From sea to shining sea
A healing love like falling rain
On saints and sinners like me

Inspired by passing a church in the morning darkness with the light shining out through a stained glass image of Jesus.  Very impressive!

Easter Egg Hunt

too cunningly hide the eggs

with some guile

Rabbit Hole

by Frank Hubeny

I used to love my rabbit hole
so dark with death and dirt.
When Jesus bopped my rabbit ears,
washed my clothes, released my fears….
These tears of joy don’t hurt.

Canopy

by Frank Hubeny

Large trees prepare a canopy
which shades what’s on the ground.
Competitors for light complain
yet those preferring softer rain
give praise for what they’ve found.

Long sent beneath this canopy
I walk upon the ground.
It’s not my duty to complain.
I’m blessed with more than ample rain
and praise that I’ve been found.

Beginning VIII

by Jem Croucher

8 of 12 in the Jemverse ’12 months IV’ series

At the beginning of April

the sunshine arrived

bringing with it a warmth

which we’d been deprived

of for ages it seems

through the long winter cold

which though we’d resisted

had taken a hold

But now that’s the past

as the Springtime is here

and we all turn a face

to the warmth and the cheer

Cause

by Frank Hubeny

Temptation’s pretty finger draws
me pleasantries to tease desire
which burns when my mind’s set on fire.
I freely chose. I was the cause
and not deterministic laws.
Then demons set my mind to sleep.
Their cackling rises from the deep.
Perhaps I did not fail? I shake
as nightmares make assumptions quake
and leave a scream or two to keep.

Place to rhyme

by Jem Croucher

My best words it seems flow freely

when the small hours take a hold

when everything is quiet

and my pen does what it’s told

Relays the words I want to say

about the things I’ve done

about what I am feeling

when I’m happy or I’m glum
