Trees have feelings too

by Jem Croucher
A tree jumped out as I walked by
surprise upon its face
I laughed and smile right back at him
as I passed close by his space

He seemed quite pleased to see me
when the shock had passed away
so we had a conversation
on this lovely sunny day

He said it was polite of me
to stop and give him time
as most just passed and never paused
which borders on a crime

And then came the rain

by Jem Croucher
And then came the rain
close after the sun
a deluge which lasted
for days on the run

The gardeners and farmers
were over the moon
but all the sunbathers
said it was too soon

For the weatherman said
that the heatwave would last
but all of a sudden
it's forgotten and past

Points of Departure

by Jem Croucher
Down on the docks this evening
as the day turned into night
we had the special privilege
of a truly lovely sight
Part of the Brighton Festival
an experience to share
called 'Points of Departure'
to entertain us there

Beginning VIII

by Jem Croucher

8 of 12 in the Jemverse ’12 months IV’ series

At the beginning of April

the sunshine arrived

bringing with it a warmth

which we’d been deprived

of for ages it seems

through the long winter cold

which though we’d resisted

had taken a hold

But now that’s the past

as the Springtime is here

and we all turn a face

to the warmth and the cheer

Back to the allotment

by Jem Croucher

Got back to the allotment
armed with strimmers and a plan
spare batteries in the backpack
and refreshments in a can
The grass had taken over but
we kind of guessed it would
not that this would stop us
as with strimmers there we could
remove those months of overgrowth
and flatten it once more
revealing something of the plan
for it we have in store

Fine days and sunshine

by Jem Croucher

Sitting in my garden
thinking ‘grass – it needs a trim’
but I’m content to sit here
in the sunspot I am in
and sip an IPA I found
in the cupboard waiting there
for just a moment such as this
I’l say with ‘savour faire’

Days

by Jem Croucher

Days I can throw wide abandon
open the window and sing
breathing in deep the fresh morning air
warmed by the sunshine of Spring

Such as these made for enrichment
filling us each with sublime
for spring to the step and joy to the heart
in which we all are entwined

Reflection replete

by Jem Croucher

I took a picture of our house today
in the hub cap of a car
parked across the street because
it looked spectacular
The car, the house, reflection
I’m talking ’bout all three
and something in particular
there which fascinated me

And today there were sheep

by Jem Croucher

And today there were sheep
In the lower field still
jumping about and
climbing the hill
They ignored us of course
but I waved just the same
as they didn’t know
the reason we came
For today there were sheep
but sometime there are not
Sometimes it is cold
and sometimes it is hot
But we always come
because this is our grace
and together we three
are alive in this place

The Music

by Jem Croucher

The music was there with something afresh
it had found and picked up on the way
Something perhaps
with live music’s lapse
that made it quite special today

Seemed the musicians had put in their all
throwing energy full in the licks
As they could not perform
‘Cos now’s not the norm
so they put all they had in the mix

note book and pen right here
A cup of coffee waiting

Pink IV

by Jem Croucher

A little sprig of pink
in the winter brown today
captured my attention
as I passed upon my way
So I whipped my iPhone out
and took a picture on the spot
as it seemed the thing to do
and I thought ‘why ever not’

Goldfinch

by Jem Croucher

Goldfinch in my garden
hopping round about
looking for some nibbles
Spring is here. No doubt.
Grass needs a good cutting
but I’ll leave it for a bit
give it a chance to take good hold
not make too much of it

Prolific

by Jem Croucher

Prolific? Me? I hardly think
and yet I guess that’s true
as writing poems every day
is something that I do
A little snapshot of my life
Something every day
as there’s so much of it to see
and so much here to say
So I’ll just keep on writing
as I can’t stop you see
for it’s a special passion
and completely part of me

Four flights of steps between

by Jem Croucher

Three rooms, four flights of steps divide
my life these days its seems
and one might question why and what
that self-containment means

But I am not perturbed by it
and not imprisoned I
No captive here, no punishment
I happily get by
