Of lions and gulls

by Jem Croucher

In Portsmouth the lions
outside the Guild Hall
sit patiently waiting
and watch over all

They can never of course
leave their posts as that would
disciplinary matters
be as they should

What is a poem?

by Megha's World

What is a poem? I call them little bits of creativity scattered here and there in your mind. Hiding, waiting to be discovered, waiting to take shape in form of words.Every time you trace the path, it changes its shape.Taking new twists and turns, it gives an entirely new meaning to the emotions stored in there.

A Poem as I call it, a complex emotion in a compressed manner.

A Poem is like a walk
A walk inside my mind
In all its nooks and crannies
where I’m storing the sunshine

Nesting

by Jem Croucher

In the barren forsythia a house has appeared
built by an industrious sparrow
with twigs, grass and straw a nest has been made
between the branches narrow

Persistence

by mkvecchitto

persistence

Sometimes dreams take shape

in the afterglow of a cleansing fire

Hope borne from the ashes

of grand plans marries naked ambition

This, the inception of new found goals, flourishes

Walkies

Words about Seagulls

by Jem Croucher

I have written of seagulls
(Well, I would, wouldn’t I?)
As, living in Sussex
you’ll oft hear their cry

They’re as much of a part
of a life by the coast
as the people who live here
The sea playing host

Little Thought

by Megha's World
Everyone is living in this rampant chaos called reality. We are swarmed by ideas and thoughts every living second.So, sometimes when we are asked just to focus on one thought, one lonely thought, in your mind.It gets very difficult.

Sometimes I wonder, how will it feel to have just one thought in our mind.
Have you ever wondered?

kyle-glenn-350542

There is a thought, one deep lonely thought
Wandering in my mind

An estranged thought;
A little bit unkind.

The Seagull Serenade (reprise)

by Jem Croucher

6 of 6 in the Jemverse ‘Seagull’ series

The taste of salt around my mouth
I stand braced against a rising wind
And gaze out to the south

Seagulls, the sea and a song (reprise)

by Jem Croucher

5 of 6 in the Jemverse ‘Seagulls’ series

Alone on the shingle
Salt in my mouth
Braced against wind
Looking to South
Out there in the green
Waves rise and fall
As I listen again
To familiar call
A song just for me
The swoop and the cry
The sea and its music
As seagulls fly by

Bird Feeder

Impatient

I fill the old mossy wooden feeder that hangs from a tree limb

With an abundance of shiny, black, sunflower seeds

From the  bucket hanging on my arm.
