Sleep II

by Jem Croucher

I’m working on the premise
that something soon will change
and when I’m least expecting it
A move to rearrange
will catch me by surprise one day
and the dove-cote doors will close
cocooning me in slumber
from my head down to my toes

The place

by Bhavya Prabhakar, India

Screen Shot 2019-01-20 at 12.58.00 pm.png

The place falls

The place calls

The place reminiscing

The ones with horns

The ones with holes

In the journey

Of the time.

 

The place sucks

The place chucks

The place twinning

With the ray of hopes

In the lost memories

Of the unheard notes.

finding sanctuary

May you rest in peace

Sunshine have I

by Jem Croucher

No.1 of 8 in ‘The Sunshine series’ from Jemverse

On a train as I travel
at the start of a day
There was a bright sunrise
but now it is grey
There may well be rain
from the overcast sky
as the train speeds me onward
and we hurry by
But I’m not bothered much
as I’ll always have sun
to hold and remember
as each day’s begun

Minutes tick away as my shadow soul sails
under the new moon glazed with a hint of joy
I write your name in neon white and frame it
with jewels collected from the morning rain Continue reading

Moments of sublime

by Jem Croucher

I went walking on a hilltop
though I wasn’t really there
And then I was beside the sea
with toes in water bare

I went climbing on a mountain
though it was I think a dream
As really I was looking back
at places I had been

Basil

by Jem Croucher

Sir Basil Fawlty lived a life
as full as life can be
For almost eighteen years
he was within our family

A little border terrier cross
he was peace personified
Hardly ever growling
until the day he died

Breathe

by Jem Croucher

I saw the end of the tunnel
It shouted my name
So I ran to the light
and found freedom again

And breathing in deep
that heavenly air
I shouted out loud
and laughed without care

by dokurtybitz
Zooming along
In the dark,
Reeling and overloaded,
Images flash before my eyes
Open or shut
I see them still,
Never settling,
Circling around,
Until I crash
Into tomorrow.

The dance, the drum

by Jem Croucher

Sometimes when no one is watching
I will dance around my name
with a loud drum always banging
which never sound the same
Yes, it’s always rhythmic
but the pattern’s one of change
Its signature and syntax
quite often rearranged
