by Jem Croucher


All around me are reminders of
The ocean and the beach
Just as well then really
That I live in easy reach

For it is just a walk away
Ten minutes at the most
Another simple pleasure
Of living by the coast

All these little keepsakes
Tactile treasures to retain
Added to the next time
I’m at the beach again

  2. Love that evocative image.

  3. love it Jem, i keep beaches and rivers treasures I collect during the summer, so in cold months i can feel the summer again.

  4. Thanks Elizabeth. I’m with you there – although I tend to pick up stuff in all weathers and at any time of year. Big smiles.
