with my movement restricted

Tri-haiku XXVI (patience)

by Jem Croucher

Earlier it comes
every year it seems to me
Sunshine and Christmas

with rewarding here

Memory of summer fades
and chill settles in

And yet the promise
as greenery turns to gold
with treasure to find

And as winter looms

Tri-haiku XXIV (fading sun)

by Jem Croucher

Its autumn apex
takes the sun lower each day
as northwards I face

Summer ends but heat
remains in that strength daily
Save for lesser time

Shadows fall early
So now I must make the most
of a fading sun

The comfort of a
quiet morning in summer
August in England

Writing at first light
and then, as the sun rises
Chorus of the dawn

Welcomes in the day
as I do in readiness
with August sunshine

Tri-haiku XXII (drifting)

by Jem Croucher

The joy of being
on holiday and at ease
Days pass slowly by

As relaxation
finds me in my element
Cock-a-hoop abounds

Merging together
the days pass without a care
And find me drifting

Concentric rings dissipate

Grown, cut back, abundant now

These summer senses

This circular green
With me, part of me, in me
I am in summer

Tri-Haiku XVII (awakening)

by Jem Croucher

In this quiet time
before the morning arrives
Slumber fades away

And awakening
with my coffee freshly ground
a fragrance pervades

with birdsong chorus
on the cusp of a brand new day
The blue sky greets me

Doors flung wide open
the outside comes inside now
with fragrance of Spring

The stranger visits

Anywhere will do

And its radiance
paints everything golden here
Sparkles all over

Tri-haiku XV (Tuesday)

by Jem Croucher

Tuesdays come and go
This one similar to most
apart from the sun

Exuding brightness
at sunrise today it smiled
with something of Spring

As if to announce
a greeting, ‘Hello Tuesday’
With sun I am here

Spring speaks of yellow
as sunshine comes to the fore
and life awakens

Spirea whiteness

A nod to winter

In grass freshly mown
Here is the fragrance of Spring
and we are alive
