by Jem Croucher

The world outside my window
changes by the day
Sometimes it’s bright and sunny
and other times there’s rain

South facing from the east
I can see the rising sun
and later on out to the west
the glow when it is done

as I do from time to time
at photos I have taken
in the sunshine when it’s fine
others taken in the rain
or when walking by the sea
or up there on the Sussex hills
all precious here to me

Pictures II

by Jem Croucher


Do you have a picture
one close to your heart
Capturing a moment
from which you cannot part?
Perhaps it looks like mine
though I have many, truth be told
Ones I will keep with me
Until I’m very old

We brought a David Hockney print
and hung it on the wall
An early Christmas present
to be admired by one and all
It’s from a London retrospective
at the Royal Academy

that speaks a thousand words to me
But when capturing these in verse or rhyme

Saving a picture

by Jem Croucher


Boats on the horizon
on a shimmering sea
the sun above is shining
rather brilliantly

I am on the shoreline
wandering along
my feet deep in the shingle
my heart deep in a song

Winter’s smile

by Jem Croucher


There’s a crystalline clarity out here today
in the trees there over the way
A ground frost has visited the fields overnight
And it’s more beautiful than I can say

Stroking her picture,
I feel her skin
Beneath my thumb.
Watching her twist
And moan,
Licentious angel,
Mine for the

Sitting here
Looking at your eyes,
Peace returns
Driving out,
The anger in my soul.

Death’s face
Stares back
Where life once tried
To be,
A stepping stone perhaps
To where we are

Gently rounded curves
Beauty, skin deep
Mirrored within,
My eye
And soul
Held within her grasp,
She comes to mind

Life, a Fine Camera Shot

by Venkat

Life, a fine camera shot

Be clear with what to shoot

Only one chance you got

Clean lens first from dirt, soot

Stay in your present moment

Have patience at heart

Be subject near or distant

Check the view in every part

Innocent woman-child,
Seductive flirt
From days
Somewhat recently past,
Remembrance stirred,
When viewed
By chance,
Paths no longer

Perfect smile
Without perfection,
Cheeky thoughts,
Sometimes expressed,
Driving me to
Tribute laid adoringly,

A universe full of colour
