Tri-haiku XXXIV (the familiar)

by Jem Croucher
The familiar
just like a comfort blanket
all uniquely mine

Something I cling to
to remind me that today
everything is peace

And I breathe easy
with familiarity
born of pure content

Tri-haiku XXXIII (Heaven)

by Jem Croucher
Afternoon sunshine
in June, deliciously hot
I am in heaven

But it is a place
on earth, as Belinda said
and she was quite right

Nowhere else I would
further be this afternoon
than right here right now

Tri-haiku XVIII (Summer’s child again)

by Jem Croucher

Concluding ‘The Spring 21’ series from Jemverse (12 of 12)

I am summer’s child

My warmth grows stronger by the

Tri-haiku XXXII – Time’s Passage

by Jem Croucher

The last of the month
where has February gone?
already it’s March

But no complaints here
for summer’s ever closer
Warmer daytime soon

Coupled with new growth
Springtime around the corner
with grass now greener

Tri-haiku XXXI – Daffodil Laughter

by Jem Croucher

A vibrant greeting
bursting in Springtime yellow
sunshine to my day

A splash of colour
to the monotone palette
of winter greyness

Daffodil laughter
brightens up most any day
Truly infectious

Tri-haiku XI (winter blue returns)

by Jem Croucher

8 of 10 in ‘The Winter series’ from Jemverse

I am winter blue
Born to December, I chill
to iron cold bone

I am winter blue
To brittle January
icy fingers spread

I am winter blue
But with yellow I will change
to the green of Spring

Tri-haiku XXX (lucidity)

Haiku for Friday
as here in reflection I
position my muse
