Down by the seaside

by Jem Croucher

Spent two hours on the water
beyond the outer buoy
Half a mile or so from shore
moments of pure joy
A gentle swell from rising tides
bobbed me around a bit
Watching sailors from the club
out there enjoying it

Despair.

by Tanya

Sitting like a rock,
Not symbolic of thy power
But a being
In despair..

Lows and highs
Of life, for all:
A factoid
But not for me anymore..

Paper Promises

by Angela Umphers Rueger

Upon my dresser sits a bowl
With slips of paper filled.
They bear a message to my soul,
By pen and ink there quilled.

THE PROVIDER

by thereluctantpoet

By Charles Robert Lindholm

He goes to work each morning
He’s up before the sun
Coffee’s in the kitchen
His toast is almost done

He’s not a workaholic
He just likes to work real hard
He thinks his time is better spent
Someplace other than the yard

Allotment IV (aka ‘A certain pleasure’)

by Jem Croucher

There is a certain pleasure
at the end of a long day
to pop to the allotment
and have a little play

I might do some watering
or strim the grass a bit
or do a little weeding
or in the sunshine, sit

Dandelions & Daisies

by Jem Croucher

Have you noticed with the dandelions
that when the sun comes out
So do their yellow flowers
as it’s what they are about
It’s just the same with daisies
(and yes, I know that both are weeds)
But both reflect the sunshine
and that’s often what I need

Allotment II

by Jem Croucher

The allotment’s looking lovely
if I do say so myself
We’ve been doing lots of digging
‘Cos it’s quite good for our health
We’ve got some fruit trees growing
and have planted lots of seeds
And in between the watering
have been pulling up the weeds

Long Awaited

by Jem Croucher

A day long awaited
arrives and I’m ready
Gear is all packed
and weather looks steady
Dry bags for the rain
if it comes just in case
But I’m hoping that they
will remain in their place

Smile III

by Jem Croucher

I only have five letters
but they go a long, long way
Combined they spell out something
that will brighten up a day
Sometimes I’m told I use it
too often in my verse
But I tend to ignore that
for the other thing is worse

Blue, the beach, twilight and a wander

by Jem Croucher

Lights in the far distance
across the darkening sand
In swiftly facing twilight
as night-time gathers and
the beach and sea reflect the blue
with a peaceful lapping sound
And we’re the only people here
with silence all around

Pictures II

by Jem Croucher

20161028_202358

Do you have a picture
one close to your heart
Capturing a moment
from which you cannot part?
Perhaps it looks like mine
though I have many, truth be told
Ones I will keep with me
Until I’m very old
