Verdant again

by Jem Croucher

6 of 12 in the ‘Spring series 21’ from Jemverse


Luxuriant this time of year

the grass is verdant green

and unless I am mistaken

looks the best it’s ever been

It’s thick and lush and lovely

and loves the Springtime sun

which bathes it in a golden light

until the day is done

A pocket of Springtime revisited

by Jem Croucher

5 of 12 in ‘The Spring series 21’ from Jemverse


Sitting in a pocket of Springtime

warmed by a welcome embrace

breathing in deeply the fragrance

feeling the sun on my face

knowing the winter’s behind me

forgetting the long months of chill

looking forward to summer

promising warmer days still

by Jem Croucher

Indicative of summer

the Springtime grows and grows

it’s getting warmer by the day

The light has changed, it’s brighter now

and days are longer too

more growing time much needed

brings colours into view

Green again

by Jem Croucher

3 of 12 in ‘The Spring series 21’ from Jemverse

Green grass freshly mown

breathe deep, smell the loam

Green shoots on the trees

sprouting now into leaves

Green fronds, nature tells

there’ll be sun and then bluebells

Green of April leaps to Spring

giving life to everything

Easter Egg Hunt

by Jem Croucher

I’m devising an Easter egg hunt

it’s a giggle

too cunningly hide the eggs

with some guile

as my children have been at this

for quite a while

Place to rhyme

by Jem Croucher

My best words it seems flow freely

when the small hours take a hold

when everything is quiet

and my pen does what it’s told

Relays the words I want to say

about the things I’ve done

about what I am feeling

when I’m happy or I’m glum

Dawn Chorus Joy

by Jem Croucher

I wrote some words without a picture

save the one that’s in my head

so it’s imagination that

you’ll have to use instead

For this is about the chorus

that I hear each day at dawn

the sweetest sound I’ll ever hear

as I awaken with a yawn

Wolfgang came to visit

by Jem Croucher

Wolfgang came to visit

Sat down in the sun

Said with satisfaction

‘This is just why I have come’

He loves it in this garden

It is his home from home

and he really looks a picture

as I hope these words have shown

Pond Water

There’s a pub in Brighton called ‘The Pond’
closed of course at present
as every pub in England is
which is a bit unpleasant
It serves a pint they brew themselves
‘Pondwater’ – quite sublime
which I will savour once again
quite soon, I trust, sometime

It must be part of the “idiot code!”

A Woman’s Computer Dating Disclaimer Limerick

by Joel Kravitz

Thinking about this on Valentine’s Day.

Dating is daunting, especially now with the pandemic making the “meet and greet” a bad option for those staying safe with the Best Practices to not contract nor spread the virus. Computer, or e-dating, has been, is and will be a practical way to meet, communicate, and see if there might be a “connection” (similar interests, compatibility, chemistry); and, if all the cosmic tumblers fall into place, find a meaningful, lasting relationship. Computer dating has proven results. People do find love and get married.
