THE GREETING PLACE

by thereluctantpoet

By Charles Robert Lindholm

no welcome platform
where we can greet

the arrival
of the newest
and next
moment in time,
Now

Sunrise

by Jem Croucher

Part 18 of 20 in ‘The Aegean Shores’ series

The sunrise in Corfu
was the best I’d seen so far
And with sunlight on the water
it was quite spectacular
Islands in the bay provided
context for the scene
A rather perfect ending
for the great week this has been

Traffic into Piraeus

by Jem Croucher

Part 14 of 20 in ‘The Aegean Shores’ series

A traffic jam into Piraeus this morning
Many ships all in a queue
The Pilots letting one in at a time
As I watched from the prow with a view

Over the hills to the east the sun rose
Cast a golden glow everywhere
As each found its berth in the harbour here
(Though some were needing to share)

By CHARLES ROBERT LINDHOLM  

A BLISTERINGLY,
BLAZING YELLOW FIREBALL
LAUNCHES AN ATTACK UPON THE NIGHT
PRECISELY WHEN THE COCK CROWS
AT DAWN

IT’S A SNEAK ATTACK
BUT NOT REALLY

The Blank Page

by Jem Croucher

Awoke to a new day sunrise
like a blank page in a book
And with my pen there poised and ready
paused for a lingering look

The sun had its hat on today
as it woke with a smile on its face
and made the decision that today was the day
to make itself known ’round the place

Last Sunrise

by Jem Croucher

If I didn’t know better (and maybe I don’t)
it was almost as if the sun
had something of a point to prove
with another day begun

Blessed

Felt blessed down on the beach front
as night time slipped away
And through the clouds out to the East
the sunshine met the day

A fragile morning

by Jem Croucher

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

A fragile morning found me
fragile that I am
and gently took me to the day
to prove it was no sham
I leant upon its shoulders
It supported me right there
and showed me a bright sunrise
as I squinted in the glare

Sunrise embrace

by Jem Croucher

20161128_075411

Along the western esplanade
out across the sea
A golden winter promise
reached out its arms to me
So I stood a little while
awestruck and swathed in grace
as it wrapped its arms around me
in a sunrise warm embrace

A new winter day dawns with

And I stand in awe
An exquisite moment caught
to carry me through the day

Magnificent II

by Jem Croucher

20161010_074736

Long shadows with October
the days dawn cold and bright
and the sunshine in the eastern sky
provides a gorgeous sight
Glinting on the water
and magnificently gold
Rising over Shoreham beach
to the river in the cold

Promises Golden

by Jem Croucher

20160913_071915

The day started golden
with promise in store
that there would be warmth
with the sunshine once more
Mid-September but still
the summer is here
Though autumn is calling
and is close by I fear

Gleaming

by Jem Croucher

20160726_071640

Early morning sunrise
on the river smooth and flat
So I had to pause a while
and take a photograph of that
The boats of Shoreham harbour club
Hulls gleaming in the sun
Resplendent here this morning
on a day that’s just begun

Gold

by Jem Croucher

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Awaking to gold
spreading in from the east
like a comfort blanket;
It is my solace, this sunshine.
In its absence I pine like the loss of the sea
But together we live and are as one

The sun I see

by Jem Croucher

Band of gold in Western skies
Heralding the days’ sunrise
always comes as a surprise
When I see it there

Morning glory out of night
Darkness flees as though in flight
Wonderful to me this sight
When I see it there

Gain

These riches
These feelings, I sailed on
Of solid gold, held so, these eyes
To gloat in the gains
Created in bricks of sweat
Of yesterdays

Tears to the eye

by Jem Croucher

 

As I walked the long mile
By the dawn’s early light
I was privileged to witness
A spectacular sight
So with camera in hand
With a click and a prayer
I captured the moment
That I witnessed right there

May Day

by Jem Croucher

 

Sun rises golden, gleaming
Over Sussex field
Heralding the first of May
Its glory is revealed
Silence reigns, the world awakes
Slumber fades and here
Through the green of leafy bough
The sunshine brings us cheer

To enjoy a beautiful sunrise
Do we take the time to pause
How can you do otherwise.

Splinters of light cascade,
Filtering through dense wood
To land upon the water
As diamonds from the Gods;
