Joie de vivre V

by Jem Croucher

To be honest
there are many things
that bring a joie de vivre
as I get pleasure
from the simple things
I see each day ’round me

It is zest and
it is laughter
It’s both these things and more
It’s the essence
of the wonder
to find out what life is for

Joie de vivre IV

by Jem Croucher

And then there’s music

when really I’m still there

Brings a tingle
brings a shiver
A joie de vivre to share

Tri-haiku X (tears)

by Jem Croucher

To open your eyes
as bright sparkles sting and fall
It’s ok to cry

Embrace my sorrow
But then tomorrow bring smiles
that I may see joy

As sometimes a tear
will fall from my eyes with joy
as something moves me

Of Writers and Readers II

by Jem Croucher

Part 2 of 3

Cathartic the writing
It’s something I do
for I love to find words
to share here with you
To metre and form

I’ll find ways to bring
them time after time

THE SHANGRI LA OF US

by thereluctantpoet

THE SHANGRI LA OF US - 2
By Charles Robert Lindholm

Life Is So Fast Paced
Anymore
And Time Seems So
Fleeting

With Us
Rushing Around
In Our Own
Little Whirlwinds

The Roses
Go Unsmelled
Along With The Coffee,
Too

We Are Always
Leashed Up
To Electronics
And The Whole
Wide World
Around Us

While The Important
And The Lovely
Are Left Unattended
And Not Admired

I Want To Stop
Our World
From Spinning
Around Us
In A Vortex

HOLDING YOU IN MY ARMS - 2
I Need To
Hold You
In My Arms

HOLDING YOU IN MY ARMS
And Look
Into Your Eyes

LOOKING INTO YOUR EYES
For You Are
My Anchor,
You Are My World
And All That
Really Matters
To Me

We Need To
Protect
The Shangri La
Of Us

So We Can
Grow Old
Together
And Still Be
In Love

YOU ARE MY SHANGRI LA

Gondolier

by Jem Croucher

10 of 16 in the Jemverse ‘Venetian Vistas’ series

Our gondolier sang songs
as he took us into shade
Cool waters in our gondola
combined with serenade

The ancient walls around us
and narrow waterways
Venetian history spoke to us
on this happiest of days
