Sometimes a rest

by Jem Croucher
Had a weekend of days enlongated to fit
five of the then actually, welcome to whit
which I'd planned for myself thinking of it
as a rest is needed sometimes

Planned nothing save being the best of me

four days to enjoy once more

most welcome and respected

Holiday V

by Jem Croucher

First day of a week off work
and it’s a welcome thing
as I’m in need of a long rest
a chance to breathe and sing

Put my feet up for a while
with lie-ins every morning
Rising when more sensible
and not when day is dawning

The passing of days

by Jem Croucher

To the week that was
That has now passed
It’s had its ups and downs
Some high times
And some lower ones
Some smiles and yes, some frowns

Particularly Sunday

Had a week off

by Jem Croucher


Had a week off
didn’t do very much
just listened to music
and reading and such

Tidied a bit
sorted some stuff
and to be perfectly honest
that was enough

Rest is a note, a part of the music. Silence! But it’s necessary.

Life is a continuum of a great symphony.

A Little Piece of Me

by S. K. Reiter

I want and need my quiet time to think and write and be.
A tiny place in the world where I alone am enough and have time wonder, rest and see.
With a few moments to breathe and take care of myself because I am more fragile than I seem.
