Buried deep inside
In a corner dark
Lurks the monster
Trying to rip my soul apart.

Diamante + Alliteration: 2018-07-30

by Venkat

peace
paints, pauses
planets, ponds, pines
plays, perplexes, worms
wingless, waxy, wild
wobbled, worn
war

Summer knows

Purple fields
fragrance high
sunshine bright
deep a sigh
Lavender
in perfect rows
ripe for harvest
summer knows

Magnificent III

by Jem Croucher

Between the posts, the sea
the water calm and blue
The bench, a perfect place
to sit and watch the view

And, truth be told, this place
for just a moment spent
with gentle summer breeze
is quite magnificent

To the river

by Jem Croucher

There are steps to the water
and I don’t know why
Something with meaning
in times now passed by

Perhaps for a boatman
to access his craft
For trade on the river
to board fore and aft

Peace

by Jem Croucher

At Kew by the water
The Thames is quite low
It’s still early morning
and the river is slow
Time for respite
and peace by the trees
with only the sound
of birds in the leaves

Haven

by Jem Croucher

On the beach with its stones
I am often alone
But I’m not far from home
so I quite often come

It has peace to condone
Free from hassle and phone
And it’s not far from home
so I quite often come

Oasis

by Jem Croucher

Sat in St Nicholas’ churchyard
high up on the hill
overlooking Brighton
with all around me still

Sipped a bold, strong coffee
the sunshine breaking through
with history around me
which from my past I knew

Quiet Times

by Jem Croucher

These quiet times
in morning light
when there is no one
else in sight
Just birdsong from
the hedge and tree
and peace and quiet
and only me

At one

by Jem Croucher

On the old oyster beds
as a tide at mid-ebb gurgles
and glints in the midday sun
Seagulls play and water shines

Pyramid to sky

by Jem Croucher

The inverted pyramid ceiling
Friends Centre, Euston Road
Reached up to an iron sky
(the window up there showed)
Rain pitter-pattered gently
with peace upon the place
as I turned my eyes up skyward
with a smile upon my face

Divergent Thoughts: Set of Haikus

by pranabaxom

In the name of God
Millions tortured, maimed and killed
Still preach the gospel

The prophet of peace
Followers kill in his name
Mute spectators all

Sheep may safely graze

by Jem Croucher

Bach, three hundred years ago
wrote an aria for some sheep
with words by Salomon Frank
full of meaning, rich and deep

Sheep may safely graze and pasture
and they do still to this day
as we approach the roundabout
down here round Shoreham way

Intense, so bright
Lit up the world
That Holy night

Where Heaven met earth
Shepherds in wonder
Scores of angels rejoiced

Slumber

by Jem Croucher

The candle and the music
of an evening warm inside
Slumber slowly beckons
as the day and night collide
And as my pen finds solace
with a verse to capture this
with music an encouragement
I slip away to bliss

By Charles Robert Lindholm 

each day is like a journey on a frontier trail
the fellow travelers change depending on the
time, place and destinations
fathers, mothers, brothers, sisters, husbands, wives,
friends, relatives, classmates and coworkers come and go

Pray palms, pray pines
Pond, pelican, pink plumes
Ponder plaintive pebbles
Ponder pensive parrots
Psalms, prophecies, peace,

Little Venice

by Jem Croucher

Paddington Central, London town
a haven here I found
Little Venice, tranquil peace
despite the noise around
Ducks upon the water
Longboats moored at bay
A rather pleasant find
at the start of this fine day

One born of peace and more
‘Serenity’s’ more apt I think
up on the nineteenth floor

To times,
I have been on a high

poured with joy..
