Our little garden

by Jem Croucher

I love our little garden
and the space we have out here
It’s lovely in the summer
and at other times of year
And yes, it’s on the small side
but that’s the way it is
So we’re not that bothered by it
as there’s nothing here remiss

The fly-past

by Jem Croucher

Gulls above the Metropole
a fly-past just for me
Here in Brighton in the sun
next to the deep blue sea

Travel & flowers

by Jem Croucher

It’s going to be a busy week
and I’ll be travelling a lot
So I’ll not mind so much
if the weather’s not as hot
London now it’s Monday
Southend on the morrow
Then Lincoln Thursday morning
returning Friday when I’ll borrow…

Many Happy Returns

by Jem Croucher

Back when it was purchased
with its buds not yet in bloom
I thought I’d save a picture
of it for the first of June
And now that day has come
and the summertime is here
I’m really pleased I waited
as its beauty is now clear

A Happy You!

by Tanya

It’s time I went to school..
It’s time I went to high school..
It’s time I did my masters..
It’s time I moved on to jobbing..

When did I live?
When did I enjoy my early life?
Was I just planning to enjoy till this time?
Had I been just working for a better life?

A Bed-ly Thought

by Tanya

The air is calm,
As I can’t feel it on my palm..
The lights are dim,
So, I start to hymn..

I close my eyes-
My wings of butterflies,
A sheet covers me,
So I rest my knee..

Unclogging The Mind

by Tanya

There was this time
When I sat
Clogged with the thoughts
Of little things
That I did mind

That restless night
That uneasy mind
Took a toll
Over a lot
Of my precious time

being nice throughout a day
Instead of being horrid

are of a week my favourite day
As they often happen after
four days of toil and fray

Like A Sunflower

Like a sunflower in a sunny field,
she would smile at everyone,

as if every face she met was her sun.

But I’m not that disconcerted

Happy

by Jem Croucher

IMGP8033

Happy‘s so much better
than being glum I always find
Encouraging contentment
and a constant peace of mind
It’s so much easier to smile
and be jolly all the time
As a frown takes lots of effort
as it does to always whine

A new home

by Jem Croucher

27 November

His family had lived
in the same place for years
Safe from harm’s way
with no worries or fears
Foraging for food
in the gardens around
Then up to the homestead
up high above ground

A brightening

by Jem Croucher

28.12.11 (2)

Caught a movement in the undergrowth
Looked down at my feet
Saw a little face down there
Looking up, quite sweet
It was a friendly squirrel
Foraging for some food
I smiled and thought that seeing this
Was really rather good

Sunshine

by Jem Croucher

IMGP6308

As if from hibernation
I have woken with the sun
It lifts me from a slumber
When the winter months are done
It bathes me in its brightness
Cleans all those blues away
And perks me up for summer
Yellow filling every day

Happy thoughts

by Jem Croucher

DSCN9170

Another journey, ears are cold
Morning’s here (or so I’m told)
Five forty-five, a half light’s here
Find the time, get back in gear

Another train, a few more miles
Put on brave face, greet it with smiles
Find some words, write them down
as on I go to London town

Catching Happy

by Jem Croucher

10356750_10153233586344199_8969638600289078428_n

The effort of wearing a frown, I am told
Is harder than wearing a smile
And what a change one can bring to the world all at once
With a happy face once in a while
