When I say I’ll be done in five minutes and she’s waiting for me

She tells me I’m taking ten when it’s only been three

But when she says she needs five minutes for her to be done

I’m still waiting and waiting when it’s been thirty-one!

A damp morning’s followed
by a damp afternoon
It’s the dampest it’s been
since the damp days of June
It’s damp in the garden
and damp on the street
It’s damp everywhere
It’s a dampness complete

A hot cup of tea

by Jem Croucher


Do you ever get days
When your mind’s not in gear
They come along sometimes
Once or twice in a year
You can’t settle to anything
Concentration’s a chore
And you can’t really remember
What your day was all for.

Photo of 4 poster bed at White Hart Inn, Harrogate, with Mr and Mrs cushions

Delayed sleep

A modern curse?

Repeated waking

Time’s a blur


Tick tock goes the clock

The light’s too bright

The breathing too loud

He knew something had gone away
(But what it was he could not tell
For he couldn’t speak or shout or yell)

Grey rainy day. Not quite summer
Although it is June with Wimbledon
And strawberries and umbrellas and moans
All of which will be forgotten soon

A Note to Spouse

by Venkat

You still are my unread book
Don’t give a quizzical look
I may not be as good a cook
Or perfect in the path I took
Yet my heart is open as your nook
A spiritual path I undertook
To you it might be gobbledygook

Writing a poem.

by Harry

I sit here trying to write

A poem to please the readers

Tapping keys to make a line

And then deleting most of it

The words are not coming

They don’t seem to fit

Tapping, tapping only in hope
