Of rust and gold

by Jem Croucher

And to these days
when all I hold
is flecked with rust
or painted gold
I know which of
these I prefer
So to the gold
I will defer

Sunshine have I

by Jem Croucher

No.1 of 8 in ‘The Sunshine series’ from Jemverse

On a train as I travel
at the start of a day
There was a bright sunrise
but now it is grey
There may well be rain
from the overcast sky
as the train speeds me onward
and we hurry by
But I’m not bothered much
as I’ll always have sun
to hold and remember
as each day’s begun

Diamond Days

by Jem Croucher

Some days are diamond
the sea and the sky
azure blue with the sun
up there on high

Some days are damond
more precious than gold
when a sunshine embrace
brings me in from the cold

Pictures II

by Jem Croucher

20161028_202358

Do you have a picture
one close to your heart
Capturing a moment
from which you cannot part?
Perhaps it looks like mine
though I have many, truth be told
Ones I will keep with me
Until I’m very old

At the end of my garden

tells me winter is near

A little bit of magic

by Jem Croucher

IMGP0256

I plucked a little bit
of magic from the air
as it waited for me patiently
in the sunlight just out there
It carried a pure fragrance
which I cherished with a smile
as I put it in my pocket
to carry for a while

Rare moments

by Jem Croucher

IMGP0299

Capturing rare moments
bring a soliloquy
even if I’m by myself
‘tho most would still agree
For there’s substance in these words
which rings true with everyone
The joy of finding heaven
is a thing which must be done

Precious

by Jem Croucher

Screen Shot 2016-04-19 at 00.55.19

Not for me a diamond
or something made of gold
For I can find my treasure
in memories of old
Just walking through the harbour
where I wandered as a boy
has value beyond measure
and instils in me a joy

Holes

by Jem Croucher

Of all the pebbles on the beach
with virtues to extol
the ones which I love most of all
are those that have a hole

I try to find one every time
as it’s something that I do
And as I’ve lived here many years
I now have quite a few

Remembering

by Jem Croucher

Jem & Dad

I think that now you would be proud
of all I have achieved
But on that day in seventy-four
I merely felt deceived
I was fifteen then and, waking rude
my sunshine went away
with suits upon the doorstep
on that dark and painful day

All Mine

by Jem Croucher

 

Etched like an engraving
the sight of the sea
is something I carry
always with me
‘Cos it’s inside my head
that’s where it’ll stay
Safely where no-one
can take it away

Wonderful Design

Do we appreciate how wonderfully we’re made
Bodies designed allowing us to give so much
From physical, mental, even spiritual things
We never know how many our lives may touch.

Precious days again

by Jem Croucher

 

And this morning I have made resolve
As precious days are these
Too few to squander, waste away
A circumstance to seize

You Should Know

by graypoet

If you want to see your worst critic
Just take a look in the mirror to see
We know our faults that may not show
We imagine a better person we might be.
