Decisions

by scatterednotebooks

I missed my opportunity
when I put it off.
I thought I had plenty of time.
I went about my business,
though it never left my mind.
Now he’s gone and I’m left to cry.

As is bound to happen
when a tender moments gone,

Comfort in Sound

by Jem Croucher

I’m plagiarising something
today, but never mind
‘Cos there’s every best intention
and it’s not meant to be unkind
For I have (as to be honest)
done a thing I often do
Been listening to music
and the sounds I loved and knew

And the Oscar Goes To…

by scatterednotebooks

as I sit in the dark and experience
a life

A glimpse of Spring

by Jem Croucher

I caught a glimpse of Spring
on the ground the other day
as a host of flowering crocuses
gathered there to say
that the sunshine’s getting warmer
so it’ll really not be long
before the sound from every meadow
is the voice of Springtime song

The song of every ocean

by Jem Croucher

imgp9827

I know you’ve probably heard this
many times before
And the last thing that I want
is for it to be a bore

But the song I hear each morning
at the beginning of a day
Is something I must shout about
in each and every way

A question, in advance

by John S

It sings itself, doesn’t it?
the song about love and hope-
the one about couples, and snowfall and candles
familiar lyrics and trope.

Daffy Puking Duck

by OrangeDilip

daffy-duck

She jump beneath the red
suave terra firma, piercing
the gravity, smooch orange
gooey acid with her bean
Bite the rubber butt of
the first lady romancing
in the white cotton beach
Puke exquisitely
on black mommy duck
beneath her nape
like a barrel of red velvet balls

Music – sedoka

by Jem Croucher

Life without music
is like a tree without leaves
sadly bereft in winter

and left without warmth
or the promise of summer
to awaken it to joy

The music of the ocean

by Jem Croucher

20160913_073407

The music of the ocean
the best tune I know
as I hear if very often
when to the beach I go
It’s a full orchestral movement
with the nuances that brings
and the voices of a choir
for the wondrous songs its sings

A passionate discovery

by Jem Croucher

20160806_131006

In life I have two passions
which, I’m pleased to say
I’m blessed, as I can oft indulge
in each ‘most every day
One (you’ve guessed) is writing
as these words attest right here
Something that I love to do
and in my life hold dear

47 bells

We sat under the Carillon
In the summer sun
Been a while since we’ve been here
Yet there we were as one
There wasn’t a recital
today, yet all the same
It was good to see it in the park
and be here once again
