They say your in a better place

They say your in a better place
But what the hell do they know
They say your always with me
As I shake my head real slow
There is no better place for you,

August Request

by HemmingPlay

Please consider picking up a copy of “Snowflakes & Ashes…” at Amazon or Barnes & Noble online. The links are below. It’s not a beach book, I’m afraid. But that’s not all bad this time of year.

But don’t take my word for it. From one of the reviews.

Embers

by Jem Croucher

Around the fireside, family
A summer evening spent
sharing food and drinking beer
and general merriment

The embers glow with flicker bright
A focal point to share
This was contentment, rarified
for everybody there

Secret

by HemmingPlay

When the sands
of our deeper selves
shift, slide, scald
at 3 a.m.,
when buried grief
slithers out again,
the night holds its
breath a moment,
exhales and the Eastern
sky brightens.
Safe again, we wake.

Simply Because

by Jem Croucher

And again I found my way back to the beach
the sun enticing me there
Peeled back the wearisome stab of mundane
to a world without worry or care

The sound of the sea in a brisk August breeze
caressed and soothed as it does
Bringing me back to the place I belong
here in Sussex and simply because…

Kept secrets linger —
caught somewhere in
a spiritual realm where
quiet rain falls from dusty skies
and the thin veil of faith shudders

Blinded but now can see

My ears still slightly damaged

Deafened but now can hear

Half past three

by Jem Croucher

When work is over for the day
and sun’s still shining bright
A part of me looks forward to
the beach, soon in my sight
The breeze that blows in from the sea
though warm will cool me down
Contentment overwhelms me
and joy replaces frown

Beach

by Jem Croucher

There’s a lady with a cup of tea
who comes from time to time
Sits on the shingle for a while
when the weather’s fine
And sometimes when the wind is strong
colour fills the sky
as kites takes to the sea and surf
and pass me swiftly by

Synergy

by Jem Croucher

Found I shared a synergy
earlier today
with a kindred spirit
many miles away
A passion shared in music
awakened by a song
heard across the airwaves
to which we sang along

sunlight is dispersed through
the canopy of ancient trees
A kaleidoscope of color
explodes on the forest floor
with beads of amethyst and gold
