and took the volume home with me
to place on my bookrack

My Chair

by Jem Croucher

There’s a place in my house where I sit
and, if I chose to lose myself I can
Be it with reading or writing
or music or game
Sometimes Obi joins me
as it is for him safe haven
when there is something loud downstairs
My little brown comfort blanket
snuggled up and sleeping
in my chair beside me

“Love is the way messengers

from the mystery tell us things.


Love is the mother

we are her children.


She shines inside us,

visible-invisible, as we trust

or lose trust, or feel it start to grow again.”

Home in the warm

by Jem Croucher


The air was so brittle
it brought a chill to the bone
So I wasn’t out long
before heading for home
Much better instead to
curl up with a book
with just the occasional
glance up for a look

The Untouched Book

by Venkat

Lying alone at the table corner
Missing my pleasant touch
Thinking deep about the real loner
Me, yearning long to read much

Layered pages of my unread book
Dozing on the wistful table
Ages gone since I gave a look
Untouched as a saint noble

Our joy is reading the comments

We forge alliances thru’ our verses.

Even his torture
