A long walk to the pub

by Jem Croucher


We went on a long walk to Lewes
Along the old Drovers way
Following the ancient Trail of Juggs
on a wonderful sunny day

Afternoon delight

by Jem Croucher


Stained glass caught it streaming through
Late afternoon delight
The warmth, the sudden comfort
of this winter pale sunlight

Big Sun

The biggest sun I ever saw
greeted me today
A golden ball of wonder
which took my breath away

Like A Sunflower

by markfahmy
Like a sunflower in a sunny field,
she would smile at everyone,

as if every face she met was her sun.

Soft afternoon sun,

Clicking, clacking, horse strolling.

Silky, shiny hair,

A tree was beaten, but not dead.

Branches were twisted, leaves flopped.

A cracking way to start the day

by Jem Croucher


A cracking way to start the day
riding along the beach
The sea deep blue reflecting sky
and there in easy reach

Part of me would love to stop
jump in and have a swim
But I really need to get to work
and get some hours in

Catching Summer

by Jem Croucher


In bright sunshine
behind a wall
I took a snap
and captured all
Summer caught
in picture frame
The glare, the warmth
the sweet refrain

The Moon I lit
         on my eyes
Gave a thousand candles
         on my palms

The Sun I set
         in my heart
Gave a thousand rays
         in my mind

Chasing the brightest sunbeams
Moments slip away

Whenever I see sunsets
out over the sea
I experience delight

Won’t You Come Back

by graypoet


Come on summer, I know you are out there
I’ve been waiting, your warmth I need to feel
I try to wait until you decide to show yourself
But today I really need you, here’s my appeal.

Under the weather

by Jem Croucher


On days when I am feeling
a bit under the weather
I try to think of nicer things
to keep myself together
So instead of dwelling on the rain
and the cold this time of year
My thoughts turn to the summer
and long days of warmth and cheer

Cloud Blankets

by Jem Croucher


You can see why it’s called ‘a blanket of cloud’
‘Cos the sky’s all tucked up in the West
There’s yellow out there suggesting the sun
But it’s staying in bed for a rest

Shades of Fire

by Venkat


As a spark
This mind flew
Into distances
A meteor, streaked
Fuelled by happiness
In finding shades
of the dark, around

Suns and Black holes

by Venkat


Our mind
A cosmos
Of radiant glow

Where darkness loses grip
And moons cannot refuse
Where swords fail to cut
And pearls cannot resist

Pocket of sunshine

by Jem Croucher


I have a pocket of sunshine
to soak up the last rays
As they leave my garden
at the end of fine days
And in the chair I have here
I’ll sit quietly and write
With the joys of my garden
Close by in plain sight

Growing up

by Jem Croucher


We once had an allotment
where we grew loads of stuff
But it was very overgrown
so the going there was tough
And when you’ve four young children
who all are growing fast
you sort of know that things like this
are never going to last

June II

by Jem Croucher


The month of summer solstice
Midsummer’s day and Thursday’s child
Is here at last, I’m pleased to say
So on this day I smiled

Sets the sun

by Jem Croucher


Sets the sun o’er golden evening
Summer’s soft call now
the heat of day slip-slides away
Cooling now, my brow

The summer sun returned today

As if from hibernation
I have woken with the sun
It lifts me from a slumber
When the winter months are done
It bathes me in its brightness
Cleans all those blues away
And perks me up for summer
Yellow filling every day

Sunshine is

by Jem Croucher


Sunshine is
as sunshine does
with warm embrace
and all because
sunshine is
my saving grace
and always brings
a smile to face

Woke up to streaming sun
through curtains tightly drawn
threw them wide and welcomed
a shiny springtime morn

Felt the sunshine warming
there upon my brow
squinting, waved a welcome
for it won’t be that long now

And I’ll tell you another thing
And this is quite good
And it has a good ending
And it’s right that it should

When I get lacklustre
And my mind begins to slow
A recharging of the batteries
Renews ‘get up and go’

With this I share affinity
with my mobile and my Mac
For when they drop to ten per cent
It is energy they lack
