Seagulls, the sea and a song (reprise)

by Jem Croucher

5 of 6 in the Jemverse ‘Seagulls’ series

Alone on the shingle
Salt in my mouth
Braced against wind
Looking to South
Out there in the green
Waves rise and fall
As I listen again
To familiar call
A song just for me
The swoop and the cry
The sea and its music
As seagulls fly by

A White Winter Hymn

by pacific

f3459184477d994a2ceb80662cb83eb2-2

What is this I see?

The shimmer of years yet to be,

The draping of a quilted sight,

The flaking hope on a snowy night.

A sea of mist sprung from your lips,

The intonation of your tender quips.

Coming Home

by Anita Lubesh

From waterfalls to stepping stones, meandering
across history’s bones, I am halted by a sound,
the sound of mandolins.

The song of every ocean

by Jem Croucher

imgp9827

I know you’ve probably heard this
many times before
And the last thing that I want
is for it to be a bore

But the song I hear each morning
at the beginning of a day
Is something I must shout about
in each and every way

The music of the ocean

by Jem Croucher

20160913_073407

The music of the ocean
the best tune I know
as I hear if very often
when to the beach I go
It’s a full orchestral movement
with the nuances that brings
and the voices of a choir
for the wondrous songs its sings

Not long now

Sunshine in the mirror
Blue up in the sky
reflected in the water
winter hurries by
February receding
March knocks at the door
Spring is quietly waiting
to welcome us once more

Yellow morning song

by Jem Croucher

 

Yellow sky this morning
in a very special way
tells me that it’s going to be
another lovely day
A far cry from the winter
we expect this time of year
as it’s up in double figures
to add an extra dose of cheer

The Music

by Jem Croucher

IMGP9542

Back lit through the dry-ice swirl
the player comes to fore
his nimble fingers on the frets
the crowd cries out for more

The singer steps up to the mic
narration in the song
the scene is set, the story told
the crowd sings loud along

The walking to work song

by Jem Croucher

 

With reflections in puddles
as I’m walking along
the timbre of my thoughts
falling naturally to song
the rhythm of the world
helps me hum a little ditty
as it’s mirrored down there at my feet
looking really pretty

One tiny splash of summer colour clings
Alone and fragile there
Abandoned by warmth it sadly sings
With its last breath to share

In the scintillating light of early bright

Something maybe I have not heard before

Fresh ideas that I must now explore.

Is sounding pretty good
