The song of Spring

by Jem Croucher

I’m sitting in the sunshine
in my garden, it’s still March
But the song of Spring is here
with the blackbird and the larch
And it’s warm outside the breeze
in the shelter of this place
And you can see how much I love it
by the smile upon my face

the yellow that speaks of the sun
Forsythia glory shouting aloud
that Springtime has begun

That brings forth re-birth…

We Close our Eyes

by Anita Lubesh

cherry-frost

Above our head, hail forms, plummeting to pin prick curiosity
just as the jilted spring we foresaw disappears from view;
we crawl back to hide between the shadows of winter and yesterday.

A glimpse of Spring

by Jem Croucher

fullsizeoutput_1a58

I caught a glimpse of Spring
on the ground the other day
as a host of flowering crocuses
gathered there to say
that the sunshine’s getting warmer
so it’ll really not be long
before the sound from every meadow
is the voice of Springtime song

Spring

Put your ear to the air.

Tune your senses to the long rhythms…

The sun is daily higher,

It knocks harder on grave’s door:

Beneath in the icy ground,

Life warms from near death

Shudders and swells and pushes against

The things that would keep it cold:

Colour will our palettes fill

by Jem Croucher

20160511_122629

As it’s sometimes quite disheartening
in short days of winter chill
A thing that will encourage
is that it isn’t long until
the warmer days that come with Spring
It’ll bring more light and mean
that we can turn away from grey
and see instead the green

in a hedgerow yesterday

Handful of yellow

by Jem Croucher

fullsizeoutput_1785

I had a handful of yellow
but I let it all go
and now I’ll not find it
’til Springtime I know
It was careless of me
for I had it right there
like a smile on the breeze
just ready to share

Pleasure

by Jem Croucher

20161119_124058

We brought a David Hockney print
and hung it on the wall
An early Christmas present
to be admired by one and all
It’s from a London retrospective
at the Royal Academy
to which just under four years past
we went, my wife and me

Bluebell

by Jem Croucher

IMGP0040

In winter I’m dormant
biding my time
But come Spring I emerge
when the weather is fine
Then I’ll mirror the sky
as my vibrant blue grows
when I blossom and flourish
and my true beauty shows

The gift of May

by Jem Croucher

IMGP0076

A poem for Maytime
sitting out in the sun
The warmer air tells us
Springtime’s begun
There are dandelions
buttercups, daisies too
growing there in the grass
with the bells of blue

The Roller

by A. Marie

She is color, speed, and song.
Her appearance, an oasis
Of the eye.
A wunderkind, a rapture,
Were she mineral
She be as wulfenite.
A caress of spring flowering and
Young life, beauteous and beguiling.

Pocket of sunshine

Sitting in a pocket of springtime
Warmed by a welcome embrace
Breathing deeply the fragrance
Feeling the sun on my face
Knowing the winter’s behind me
Forgetting the six months of chill
Looking forward to summer
Promising warmer days still
