The beauty of language

by Jem Croucher

I’m happy when writing
It fills me with joy
and it’s done this for ages
(since I was a boy)
I’ve written most days
sometimes just a few lines
to capture the years
the moments and times

Orange Two

by Jem Croucher

Seven colours, seven days
Orange follows suit
The second in the rainbow
it really is a beaut

It’s right there in a sunset
at the end of a long day
A testament to wonder
in every single way

THE NAKED PIANO

by thereluctantpoet

By Charles Robert Lindholm

 

Sitting on a stage

in a solitary pose

like a model

with no clothes

 

No clothes

to hide the beauty

that we see

and the magic

that we hear

 

Transfixed

we cannot

look away

Waving in the breeze
Brought me to a standstill
Took me to my knees

Travel & flowers

by Jem Croucher

It’s going to be a busy week
and I’ll be travelling a lot
So I’ll not mind so much
if the weather’s not as hot
London now it’s Monday
Southend on the morrow
Then Lincoln Thursday morning
returning Friday when I’ll borrow…

Many Happy Returns

by Jem Croucher

Back when it was purchased
with its buds not yet in bloom
I thought I’d save a picture
of it for the first of June
And now that day has come
and the summertime is here
I’m really pleased I waited
as its beauty is now clear

For the birds

by Jem Croucher

On Ditching Down we found ourselves
‘For the Birds’ – a mystery tour
Part of the Brighton Festival
at midnight, what was more

A trail of lights led up the hill
which we followed to the crest
all adding to the mystery
which put us to the test

Allure

by Jem Croucher

The allure of the ocean
calls often to me
whenever I’m taken
away from the sea
So I have to return
as one does for a friend
as its magic and beauty
has no limit or end

Heronswood

by A. Marie

I can walk the world in the Heronswood,
I can walk and talk with the horticulturists
and the nature gods. I can meet with cultures
I never knew, the Thalictrum, the Fuchsia,
the Phlox, the Hakonechloa. With my fingers
I can brush the Bishop’s Hat, with my toes

Caught

by The Cheesesellers Wife

I am caught in the grip of wonder
The balance and symmetry of mathematics
The glints and sparkles of a spiders many eyes
The shimmering dance of subatomic particles

The Time Tonight!

by Tanya

I untied my hair
Swiftly carressed with my fingers
Fell on the bed
Magnetised by the pillow!

Looked up to see
And out of the big window
Ah! What a sight!
I stared and glared!

Of Chincoteague and Longing

by A. Marie

You have the makings
Of a mustang, long legs

And long neck. Veins
That bulge in the noontime,

Blue as sapphire under
Moonlight. Your auburn mane

May our unknowing lead to breakthroughs and growth,

And our impediments inspire songs of gratitude,

Whether sung aloud or only within our hearts.

The Everyday You

by scatterednotebooks

I’m in love with the every day you
hair pulled back
and green tennis shoes
blue jeans and tee shirt

under your nails – still – the dirt
from the garden full of roses
in bloom –
I’m in love with the everyday you

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

lawress-hall-22-1-13-8

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
