Adventure Planning

by Jem Croucher

Around about this time of year
my brother Dave and me
Take maps and pens and paper
to our local hostelry
And there we’ll plan adventures
whilst sharing a fine ale
Recalling all we’ve had before
with memories to regale

The Gift

by Harry

Submitted by Claire Carroll
.

The gift my parents accepted on my behalf
was a gift not of my choosing

The gift, a result of years of indoctrination
Was a gift worth losing.

November Day

by Harry

Peter M Burns
.

November Day.
No worries:
Just shoot the breeze
In convivial companionship with
Autumnal liberated leaves
Protecting scavenging hungry mice
From mouths that seek to feed upon them
As they scurry to and fro.

James Brindley

by Jem Croucher

James Brindley was an engineer
born seventeen seventy-two
Who later, when he’d qualified
canals and water knew
He designed many aqueducts
and tunnels through the rocks
along with single traffic gates
in narrow water locks

Divergent Path

by mkvecchitto

 

Beware angels and demons who reminisce

a life unstrung with each opportunity gone amiss

A path followed with purpose will rise above their doubt

Hidden in those moments before dawn, a battle we will mount

We know after the rain comes sweet bliss

The Bud

by Tanya

A little you:
the bud 
still in its formative years,
moulded by what you hear..

Years to come,
when you would learn,
what transpired,
when you were young..

Poppies

by Harry

Submitted by Christine Magee

.

I moved with her in her shadow,
always running behind,
keeping in perfect step with her mood
and trying to usher her out into daylight
so that I could gather poppies in the sun.
If I succeeded, I was invited to dance
and we’d twirl round and around.
I’d throw back my head
as I burst into her laughter,
weaving in and out of her displeasure
and leaping onto the pages of her good books.

Change of Seasons; Change of Heart

Submitted by Adrian King

With the falling leaves
Did his ambitions reign high
But end soon appeared.

Down came silent snow.
Christmas season had arrived
Yet gifts brought no joy.

A colourful story

Colourfully painted
they have seen many days
Sitting next to smokestacks
on England’s waterways
Functional yet lovely
water for the boat
Keeping engines running
flotilla here afloat

It Is Something To Have Been

by HemmingPlay
Karma-New-Orleans-Louisiana-USA-4

“Karma,” New Orleans, Louisiana, USA. An impressive sculpture is located in the Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden, which is found at the New Orleans Museum of Art. It is made by Korean artist Do Ho Suh.

I am well past my 20s,
that golden time
when I only saw a little—and even that
with optimistic eyes.

I’m past the days of cheap
apartments with friends and wine and roaches,
lentils and rice for breakfast,
or leftover cold pizza.

I’m beyond learning of
war and death and pestilence.
The visitations of grief
have marked me, too.

Slowly

Reflected in the water
Tower blocks in the sun
On the Worcester and the Birmingham
canal, which is quite fun
A peaceful little wander
Present blending with the past
where pace is somewhat slower
that the city where it’s fast
