The colour of rain

by Jem Croucher

I saw splashes of colour
like rain falling down
A rainstorm of rainbows
to dispel any frown
So I danced as the colour
fell all around me
soaking and soothing
and setting me free

PURITY

by Bhavya Prabhakar, India

Screen Shot 2018-06-02 at 1.10.33 am.png

He peeled his skin, to see if

the blood has same purity as

the redness in his eyes,

the fact is silence

in the moonshine.

 

Purity has which colour

red or white

or is it because of the wine,

he coloured him red, to see if

he feels the purity as

the pure love in her eyes.

Colour Jumble

Like a jumble of colour
the sunshine of May
make known its existence
as a potter with clay

Expertly crafted
the warmth that it brought
give us the summer
that we had long sought

I look for a smile
Especially when

But it’s easier when
the sunshine comes out
and there’s things like
Spring and Summer about

Vibrancy shouting

by Jem Croucher

It was vibrancy shouting
my name out loud
as I welcomed the sunshine
from behind winter cloud

And the stage show of colour
I had waited long for
sang loud with theatre
for raptured encore

Yellow is…

by Jem Croucher

Yellow comes and yellow goes
but with consistency it shows
that yellow carries summer days
the brightest sun, the mellow haze
So it finds favour just because
yellow is and yellow does

The Promise II

by Jem Croucher

Outside the weather
reminds me again
that winter’s still here
with the wind and the rain
It’s blowing so hard
with a howl and a moan
from the cold of the north
where it’s festered and grown

Clarity III

by Jem Croucher

And the light this morning
emulates a clarity anew
Captured on the coast road
as I pass with clear sea view
Pastel pinks and subtle blue
Oranges and yellow
confirming absolutely that
I am a lucky fellow

A colourful story

by Jem Croucher

Colourfully painted
they have seen many days
Sitting next to smokestacks
on England’s waterways
Functional yet lovely
water for the boat
Keeping engines running
flotilla here afloat

Virginia’s bid for glory

by Jem Croucher

Virginia’s changed her colour
and gone on a crash diet
Her body has diminished
but she’s keeping far from quiet

From green to red her foliage
with vibrancy remains
Her bid for autumn’s glory
with five leaves red she claims

The Nasturtium Takeover Bid

by Jem Croucher

The nasturtium’s gone manic
now the summer is done
It’s begun to take over
and thinks it’s ‘the one’
If we left it unchecked
It would simply keep growing
and how big it would get
Well, there’s no way of knowing

The red

by Jem Croucher

I stopped, reduced to tears
when the red before me lay
Tear of joy for splendour
shown to me upon this day

Walking down an avenue
trees on either side
Then this, the most spectacular
to leave me misty-eyed

Nature’s evening slumber

by Jem Croucher

Upon the ground this time of year
the yellow, red and gold
A carpet of pure loveliness
from trees both young and old

Crunchy in the sunshine
fragrant in the rain
It always brings a certain cheer
when autumn comes again

With Marigold a marriage

Nasturtium Fields

by Jem Croucher

Although they may be fading
in the sunshine here today
A field of bright nasturtiums
in proud exuberance lay

Yellows, red and orange
and in between some green
as wonderful a palette
as I think I may have seen

Violet Seven

Seven colours, seven days
Violet’s turn at last
The seventh in the rainbow

Green Four

Seven colours, seven days
and green’s the next in line
The fourth one in the rainbow
and one that’s very fine

For it speaks to me of life itself
and the good things oft bestowed
on each of us ‘most every day
from all that nature grows

Colour will our palettes fill

by Jem Croucher

20160511_122629

As it’s sometimes quite disheartening
in short days of winter chill
A thing that will encourage
is that it isn’t long until
the warmer days that come with Spring
It’ll bring more light and mean
that we can turn away from grey
and see instead the green
