Choice

by Venkat

a wooded home, to hold love
across cemented minds, words painted
oars starved , of every choice

Quirky

by Jem Croucher

3 of 6 in the Jemverse ‘Shoreham’ series

And I am a community
fascination here to pique
All along the river bank
quirky and unique
Houseboats here in residence
tradition to bizarre
Conformity is alien
I’m not particular

Little Venice

by Jem Croucher

Paddington Central, London town
a haven here I found
Little Venice, tranquil peace
despite the noise around
Ducks upon the water
Longboats moored at bay
A rather pleasant find
at the start of this fine day

Sealegs Wobble

by Jem Croucher

We’ve been back home now
for almost two days
with parts of us still out there
in many different ways

It’s called a ‘sealegs wobble’
after a week at sea
A strange but lovely feeling
from a place we love to be

Approaching Kefalonia

by Jem Croucher

Part 16 of 20 in ‘The Aegean Shores’ series

Islands in the distance
across the azure seas
A force five blowing from the east
feels like a summer breeze
Kefalonia looming
on the horizon through the haze
For a seven-hour stopover
on the last but one of days

Morning and a paddle

by Jem Croucher

Went boating of a morning
Early birds out with the sun
When everything was quiet
And the day had just begun

The water was idyllic
With just a gentle swell
And the temperature was lovely
As by the picture you can tell

A fall from grace I

by Jem Croucher

imgp0921

There’s a boat on the river
that’s sad and bereft
For I’m sorry to say
there’s not a lot of it left
Abandoned to fate
several years ago now
It’s slowly been fading
from its stern to its bow

Have wheels, will travel

by Jem Croucher

Bought a two man kayak
but although it’s very nice
Time these past two years
has meant we’ve only used it twice

The seldom end of summer days

by Jem Croucher

 

From the beach today I saw a ship
a long way out to sea
Out there in the channel
it was calling out to me
It bade me come and join it
as it steamed to warmer lands
But alas I sadly shook my head
as I stood there on the sands

The sea and a secret

by Jem Croucher

IMGP9681

Tall master in the Albert dock
at rest on Merseyside
I wonder where her keel has been
in oceans far and wide
Her rigging whistling in the wind
sails tied down and furled
She’s keeping that a secret
from an unenlightened world

Houseboat

by Jem Croucher

 

Walked along the riverbank
the tide full on the turn
Admiring all the houseboats
moored along the berm

Forgotten

by Jem Croucher

 

Sad, bereft, alone, forgotten
Small boat on the bank
It’s final resting place remains
From the day it sank
