Good friend music

by Jem Croucher

Open fire, St James’
folk music and a beer
My soulmate and two daughters
on a Sunday with me here

Waiting for the music, chilled
good conversation flows
The band arrives, the music plays
and dancing with it grows

Tradition

by Jem Croucher

3 of 5 in the Jemverse ’31’ series

It’s becoming a tradition
as this is the second year
February seventeen
and a walk to have a beer
We’re spoilt for choice in Sussex
with the hills to take us there
So here’s to many more years still
this special day to share

Pyramid to sky

by Jem Croucher

The inverted pyramid ceiling
Friends Centre, Euston Road
Reached up to an iron sky
(the window up there showed)
Rain pitter-pattered gently
with peace upon the place
as I turned my eyes up skyward
with a smile upon my face

A Christmas Eve walk

by Jem Croucher

The day of the eve before Christmas
and all of us out for a walk
Taking in Sussex, the river and downs
for a jolly good laugh and a talk

Conversing about the things we have done
whilst out in the fair countryside
Dusting off cobwebs, eight miles or so
Family and friends to confide

The Welly

by Jem Croucher

The feet upon the wooden floor
Are moving to the beat
as conversation struggles
for those who’ve found a seat
The man up on the microphone
is getting really loud
But the music’s really throbbing
and is pleasing to the crowd

Dog

by Jem Croucher

 

 

 

 

 

 

This week I have been writing
about an animal each day
So I think I’ll finish with the dog
and let them have their say
I mention this quite glibly
for in my house they’re loud
make their presence known with barks
of which they’re jolly proud

Steep

the Drovers path was steep
So we all walked slow together
like a little herd of sheep

Friends

by Jem Croucher

On a train out of St Pancras
heading for the coast
It’s been a really good night out
of which we’ve made the most
We’ve had good conversation
as good friends always do
It’s just a pity that these
get togethers are so very few

Makeover

by Jem Croucher

We took a week long holiday
and whilst we were away
Our lovely children trashed our house
‘Disgraceful’ you might say
But you’ve not heard the half of it
for what they planned to do
was a complete and total makeover
to create a home brand new

The class of ’81

by Jem Croucher

IMGP0089

We all got lost in Loughborough
couldn’t find our way around
But then it has been quite a while
since we all lived in this town
Nothing looked familiar
No landmarks did we see
It really was confusing
(How hard could all this be?)

Sing a new Song

by 50djohnson

 

Think on These Things For Just Five Minutes!

When going through the valley, thinking laughter will never come again

Surprises of joy burst through the clouds every now and then.

Everyday just singing the woeful dirge of pain

Christ’s  presence helps us sing even in the pouring rain.

Never can one speak high enough of the virtues of laughter shared,

Power that courses through us like healing balm freely shared.

Beauty lies next to me,
Peaceful and serene,
Soft snores
Sexy curves,
As the morning
Slowly drifts by.

May your heart sing like the mockingbird, lilting
bright as the monarch in the marigolds, red
as the blood of the Indian paintbrush
flourishing at the gate to the orchard, happy

Change of Heart: A Children’s Rhyming Story Poem

by russtowne

Change of Heart

 “Why do you look so sad?” asked my friend Chad.

 “It’s because of the bad day I’ve had!”

 He asked, “What’s wrong with your eyes!”

 Now that was a big surprise!

 As he and I sat to chat

 I asked him what he meant by that.

The Way You See Them

by beeseeker

Hot feet, impatient to eat the miles,

Get past – over, through, round – the

Heart attack jams on this

Stretch of cold-as-business road.

Runes, signs, lines

Whispering at me

“Blue open skies

Are nothing but lies,

Friends will make you weaker …”

Unconditional

I don’t ask for much in life
I settle for the least
A bed to sleep in, warm at night
And now and then a feast
