Winter Sparrows

A cold winter falls
Sparrows huddle and shiver
Hunger befriends them

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

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

My stalwart sea

by Jem Croucher


Everyone needs a stalwart friend
There in times of need
and happiness and sorrow
and excitement and pain
and joy and fulfilment
But most times, simply there

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

by Lakshmi

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.

Ocean Heart

by Jem Croucher


I have a heart for the ocean
(No pun intended
no reference to movies
or films here extended)

It’s something that’s rooted
Deep in my being
Helped every day by the
views I am seeing

My home sea

by Jem Croucher


My home sea has a welcome sound
Whenever I’m nearby
Sometimes a shout, sometimes a roar
Sometimes a whispering sigh

Sympathy vs Empathy

by graypoet

Contemplating the post of a dear friend
I felt the pain that was related in word
Reading what others sent as a response
Had me wondering the feelings stirred.

M. I. A.

by graypoet

To many MIA gives thoughts of soldiers
Missing In Action, their fate unknown
But there is a more common explanation
Making It Alone, by strength it’s shown.

Almost everyone desires someone special
That match that makes us feel so complete
And too often accept a poor substitute
While still hoping for that one to meet.

Do You Know How Much I Loved You?

by Emily Page

Do you know how much I loved you?
Do you know that I still care?
Do you feel the same connection
That I think we truly share?

I had rhythm
No fear
And you,
A fleeting moment

Innocent woman-child,
Seductive flirt
From days
Somewhat recently past,
Remembrance stirred,
When viewed
By chance,
Paths no longer

Another Memory

by graypoet

Is it just another memory that is made
When a life ends for a dear friend
Family all gathered to share voices
In a song, before the breaths end.

Years remembered with each generation
A woman always giving of herself
So much that all remember a life
By the photos framed on a shelf.

Friend revealed

by Devina

Raindrops came down

Like a shower of lead bullets

Mingled with the brine spill

From mine eyes and soaked into my soul

But dried up before they reached the roots

The thunder and bullets



Deep inside there is a drought

No rain nor tears could quench

You left me barren and hollow

Spoiled any chance of love and trust

I had to offer a body in this miserable world

Why did you go?

my crAzy lifE!!

by Darshan Gajara


My crazy life,

turned even more crazy..

Full of emotions,

Full of reactions..

Same was the reason,

different was the season..

Feelings of a broken heart,

very difficult to sort..

Tried to find the lost life in fun,

but life itself turned into a fun..
