My best words (reprise)

by Jem Croucher

7 of 10 in ‘The Word II’ series from Jemverse

There’s a place close by where my best words are found
Sometimes it is close to the sea
But at others it is up on the hills where I walk
And most times where I happen to be
It’s a place of deep soul and of feelings and thought
and emotion wrapped up into one
For me it’s the exuberant quality of life
Born from a love of the sun

It is nature and the wonder of all things around
And the finding of beauty close by
And linking these things to a sequence of words
that I find on a whim and a cry
I am, as a poet, a listener at heart
for life has a whole lot to say
And for me it’s the joy of finding the words
for the poems I write every day

  1. You are blessed to be “ … as a poet, a listener at heart” because if you know how to listen, then “… life has a whole lot to say.” I just heard a TedTalk about listening. The message was, “We are losing our listening.” Yes, alas, there are not enough poets in our world!
