By the warm birch trees
In the cold.
I can tell it’s cold. —

The tall white birch trees
Stand like soldiers on guard

the Thames is on the turn
And as the sun shines on the water
there to wander I adjourn

The beach and me

by Jem Croucher

Version 2

And on the beach last evening
hoping for some sun
I planned to have a beer
when my working day was done
Just one little problem
and I’m not trying to lay blame
But when I got there last evening
the sky was full of rain

Sometimes alone is where all your answers lie;
Sometimes in the wilderness of your thoughts, you’re no longer shy;
Sometimes deep in the silence of solitude, there you find your soul;
Sometimes in the midst of your own space, you get to realise your whole.

Tranquility III

by Jem Croucher


There are the special places
each of us must find
where we can go to be alone
find peace and just unwind
The places of tranquility
where we can simply breathe
watch quietly as the world goes by
before it’s time to leave

I’m in my favourite place
with a beer close at hand
the sky is clear blue
sun’s glistening on sand
The tide’s going out
there’s a warm, gentle breeze
and I can feel the sun’s warmth
on my legs and my knees

Ribbons, layers of ribbons
Adorned the brilliance
In colour coded stratus clouds infused

Solitude with seagulls

by Jem Croucher


Sea fog hides my Sussex fields
Rolling in from flattened sea
But, masked from view, its fragrance
drifts in and welcomes me

terra firma scent and sound

Growing out of a barren crag
Like a flower standing alone
Some might think out of place
Yet its beauty is easily shown.

Save for the quiet sounds

Captured moments, those to oneself
Rare, most will agree
So they are to cherish when happenstance
Affords soliloquy

Cancer of the Soul

by Heather's Starting End


I see me now,
And reflect on a time when
Once lost ,
Needing to be found again

I see those years,
Just a walk on part
On the stage
Of my life
In a house I occupied,
But where I did not
In a bed I slept,
But did not

Flight : Haiku.

by Author

The bird can fly free
on his wings, but without a nest
where will he return to?
