Magnificent III

by Jem Croucher

Between the posts, the sea
the water calm and blue
The bench, a perfect place
to sit and watch the view

And, truth be told, this place
for just a moment spent
with gentle summer breeze
is quite magnificent

Breakwater sunshadow

night shadows on the beach
Wooden breakwaters stand tall
robust against the Reach
Mysterious, the water calls
quietly from the shore
as lapping waves just out of sight

Sea of Child

by Jem Croucher

To which half a century later

Watching the waves

But it’s muggy and warm
so I’m happy to play
