Summer’s End

by Jem Croucher

I’m told that come September
England’s summer’s at an end
But I’m not ready yet, I’ll tell you
To say goodbye to my good friend
And I’m pretty sure the sunshine
Is having none of that
As the heat I felt at lunchtime
Made it clear where it was at

My Friend and Her Anxiety

by A. Marie

Over and over on a Ferris wheel, she will not come down,
have her meal, will not admit that she is afraid
that the contraption revolving around her heart may one day die.

She’d rather sit there, all hours, observe the heights
and the tops of towers, reach her fingertips up as she drops
to brush the illusions, feel the felt and wool of a god’s eyelash
she dreamt of the night before.

by Jem Croucher

with white horses out there today
Its cooler but the view from the beach
is great with the green and the grey

Reunion

by Frank Hubeny

When bonds were freshly made
Before the internet
Another lover got between
The two as one, no longer seen
As one with much regret.

Allure

by Jem Croucher

The allure of the ocean
calls often to me
whenever I’m taken
away from the sea
So I have to return
as one does for a friend
as its magic and beauty
has no limit or end

The Monster’s Return

by Frank Hubeny

My little daughter goes to sleep.
I hope that monster doesn’t creep
Back to her bed to say, “Hello!”
She tells me that it’s wicked, though.

Sun on water
Surf a flat white
The beach as ever
A wonderful sight
Wavelets turning
Watch them fall
The sea in movement
With its call

When the world falls

From your place
On the side-lines?

Obi (paws for thought)

by Jem Croucher

IMGP9792

Obi (pronounced “Ohbee”)
has been with us for a year
He’s a little brown jack-russell
and he’s brought us lots of cheer
We’ve had him since he was a pup
all plump and paws and ears
And like our older dog we hope
that he will stay for many years

Passing of a Friend

by graypoet

Writing many times is an outlet for my heart
Often it comes out after over-and-over I start
I don’t always know the beginning or the end
Yet this one comes from the passing of a friend.

Song of the sea

by Jem Croucher

 

Bold the seagulls’ cry
reminds me of the sea
just a short walk away from home
waiting there for me

Strong the oceans’ call
I can’t ignore for long
brings me back to its embrace
woos me with its song

Constant

by Jem Croucher

 

Life has its moments
Some happy, some sad
But I have my one constant
Of which I am glad
For no matter what
Life can throw at me
One thing never changes
My constant, the sea

My little dog

by Jem Croucher

 

My little dog called Obi
is eight months old today
He’s great to have around the place
for both a cuddle and a play
He’s got some Dachshund in him
some Jack Russell there as well
And he’s got some stupid ears
as from the picture you can tell

There in times of need

All Mine

by Jem Croucher

 

Etched like an engraving
the sight of the sea
is something I carry
always with me
‘Cos it’s inside my head
that’s where it’ll stay
Safely where no-one
can take it away

Obi’s Ears

by Jem Croucher

 

We have a dog called Obi
came to us on fourth of May
He really is a lovely chap
and loves to have a play
He has ridiculous ears
they’re his redeeming feature
Even though they’re quite enormous
for such a little creature.

A moment shared

by Jem Croucher

 

Through the window I spied
with coffee in hand
a small feathered friend
flutter by and then land

Perched on the side of
the larch wood bean frame
to my garden in search
of a morsel he came

For a Friend

oh my friend, my friend
do you know, if i could, if i could
i would walk with you always
when the world grew dark
i would stand with you and wait
for the ascent of the sun
i would be where you are,
i would be what i could
for you.

Deep in my being
