There was gold…

by Jem Croucher

There was gold on the horizon
Out there across the sea

It filled the sky above us
With clouds tinged pink and bright
Heralding a promise
As we’re told to bring delight

To the west was the gold
over Brighton tonight

except in the west where
the golden had seeped

Orange Two

by Jem Croucher

Seven colours, seven days
Orange follows suit
The second in the rainbow
it really is a beaut

It’s right there in a sunset
at the end of a long day
A testament to wonder
in every single way

I smile at sunset’s throng of small songbirds
singing out while nuzzling their nested fauna,
dreamily chirping ‘til sleep stills them.

Evening Gold

by Jem Croucher

Silhouetted here in contrast
against an azure sky
Like giant insects waiting
cranes in silent protest lie
And glorious behind them
behind the Western hills
The sun sets o’er the city
and everything is still

Last Sunset

by Jem Croucher

fullsizeoutput_19f5

And so the final sunset
the best was saved ’til last
It really was a gorgeous one
as I walked slowly past
It cast wide golden washes
upon the silken sea
as the tide crept in a final time
from the estuary

the Thames flows slowly by
underneath the setting sun

changing by the moment
for a really special treat

A certain privilege

by Jem Croucher

20160605_212212

At sunset the beach huts
the darkening sky
the almost silent sound
of a gull passing by
On the shingle we wander
watching the sea
A slackened tide turning
a good place to be

Long mile return

by Jem Croucher

nineteen

Watching winter setting sun
on the beach from the long mile
A perfect ending to the day
I stayed there for quite a while
An ebbing tide, a lapping sea
with gold reflected there
On the long mile I breathed my thanks
for all this in a prayer

seen from a speeding train
Enough to make me turn and stare
in wonder yet again
Out there on horizon
Beneath landscape’s darkened line
the golden ending of a day
Spectacularly fine

Bathed in yellow ochre

by Jem Croucher

 

Bathed in yellow ochre
as through the clouds the sunshine broke
the sea reflecting breaking skies
as the storm removed its cloak
And settling there for brief respite
although the waves still towered high
we marvelled at the setting sun
beneath a darkening sky
