Beginning XII

by Jem Croucher

12 of 12 in the Jemverse ’12 months IV’ series

Forty-eight beginnings later
first of August twenty-one
the last one in this series
now twelve months since begun
But not (you will be pleased to hear)
the last one here for good
for I'll begin a brand new series 
next month here (you knew I would)

Beginning VIII

by Jem Croucher

8 of 12 in the Jemverse ’12 months IV’ series

At the beginning of April

the sunshine arrived

bringing with it a warmth

which we’d been deprived

of for ages it seems

through the long winter cold

which though we’d resisted

had taken a hold

But now that’s the past

as the Springtime is here

and we all turn a face

to the warmth and the cheer

Beginning VI

by Jem Croucher

6 of 12 in the Jemverse ’12 month IV’ series

In layers of grey with blue above
a February sky
caught me unawares today
as slowly I walked by
It promised new beginning
and though naked still the trees
the sunshine brought a warmth
to the fading winter freeze
So, resolved there in that moment
I vowed to hold that thought today
The hope for new beginning
as I went upon my way

To the New Year a promise
here made to ones self
to remain true to form
and with all of my wealth
to capture from life
one day at a time
its essence in words
and transpose to line

Maybe someday,
We find ourselves remembering familiar faces,
that we thought we have forgotten.
Maybe sometimes,
We catch ourselves reminiscing the memories,
that we have kept deep in our hearts.
Maybe somewhere,
We find memories at places we used to go,

when the end feels as a beginning
when the beginning feels as an end
we would be in sync with time

Poetry Challenge: ABC Poem

by Rana

Almost begun.

Beats of the heart

coincide with heel clicks.

Don’t trip.

Exhale lightly.

Follow the chosen path,

gently guided.

How radiant those

illuminated eyes shine.

Jitters smooth out.

Knuckles, bleached with tension,

What Is Time?

by wordypenguin

What is time?
What is this thing that goes on without pause?
If it did not pass
Then where could it have been?
It must have been somewhere
It has passed
So where is it now?
It must be somewhere
