Winter II

by Jem Croucher
It came so fast, the iron chill as winter took a hold
and shivering we huddled to hide from bitter cold
Sometimes we would venture out for food or other things
but mostly hibernation from the numb the winter brings

Waiting still

by Jem Croucher
The sun broke through another day
and found me waiting here
lacklustre in this winter frame
awaiting Springtime cheer
Frustrating as despite the chill
the signs are evident
with green shoots reaching skyward
colour shows its good intent
and yet this lingering chill remains
as sunshine's yellow rays

A sun-kissed panorama that
is sure to cure all ill

and at evening time too
And though trees are still bare
there are signs of the new

Deep in the blue a jet plane soars
twin contrails ‘cross the sky
I wonder where it’s going to
up there so very high
Maybe to a warmer place
where the summer sun shines still
Leaving English wintertime
where it’s blustery and chill

Friday Night

by Venkat

creative sparks soar
balloons let loose, by a child
chill breeze, soul flutters
