with Brighton to the East

Balcombe Viaduct II

by Jem Croucher


Passing over Balcombe Viaduct
with winter fields down there
The memory of a leafy green
is distant now the trees are bare
Skeletal they stand forlorn
Winter has them in its grip
And it will still be quite a while
‘Til from that vice we’ll see a slip

Pea soup days

by Jem Croucher


It really was a pea soup day
with freezing fog all ’round
reducing visibility
with ice upon the ground
Everywhere was coated white
not from snow but frost
and in the thick and murky fog
it was easy to get lost

Sometimes I can fly

by Jem Croucher

Flying over Hampshire – Version 2

Sometimes I can fly
High above like a bird I soar
and look down to the sea
and the rolling waves
and the white horses galloping there
And I sing

In Shifting Shadow and Spectral Haze,

Like a wave

by Jem Croucher


Sometime a whisper
or maybe a shout
Occasionally quiet
but mostly a lout
Always moving
restless, unstill
Rising and breaking
and crashing at will

Majesty – Sedoka

by Jem Croucher


Water like mountains
Incessant the ocean waves
with malevolent power

Yet there’s beauty here
The majesty of the sea
respectfully revered

Last Lavender – tanka

by Jem Croucher


Yet, as winter comes
the last lavender remains
Born of the summer
it stands, poignant to remind
us of warmth now lost to chill

Standing on the edge of Brusque motion

Apocalypse of chaotic sound

Singing in Rhythmic Ringing

Through thunderous Beauty that

Sweetly Abounds.

Winter comes to town

by Jem Croucher


Autumn at St Mary’s
the yellow and the gold
the sunshine on the falling leaves
hides the biting chill
Crunching footfall as I walk
A blanket crisp and brown
as breath escapes in tiny clouds
and winter comes to town
