Saturday Bussokuseki

by Jem Croucher
Maybe I can try
as the weekend once again
arrives this morning
to capture something of the
hallowed place it takes me to
confirming the choice is right

Friday Jemaiku

by Jem Croucher
This week as Friday arrives
from many miles come
weary I succumb to rest
into the weekend
Rejuvenation complete
quickened to Monday

Sometimes a rest

by Jem Croucher
Had a weekend of days enlongated to fit
five of the then actually, welcome to whit
which I'd planned for myself thinking of it
as a rest is needed sometimes

Planned nothing save being the best of me
five days to do little but lounge and be free
which all of you workers will know and agree
as a rest is needed sometimes

Friday Bussokuseki

by Jem Croucher
for this Friday as it comes
A 'je ne said quoi'
capturing an essence here
in thirty-eight syllables
as the weekend starts again

Tri-tanka XV (Friday)

Come Friday, relax
for it is the weekend now
Time for more yellow
and for some in swathes of sun
for comfort in safe harbour

Tri-Haiku XXXVIII (Friday)

by Jem Croucher
And so to Friday
for a switch-off come lunchtime
into the weekend

And breathe deep, relax
soak up the fact that this is
deliciously mine

And so it will be
to use wisely and enjoy
pending the new week

Reunion II

by Jem Croucher
The light outside intense today
rain threatened but despite
all that I am yet buoyant
now the mornings here from night

A word of explanation is
quite needed there of course
and I am happy to oblige
for feelings of remorse

As today, a Friday morning
a long weekend it starts for me
with reunion long awaited
of two friends flamboyantly

Weekends II

by Jem Croucher

So another week passes
and reaches its end
with two days of rest
waiting there like a friend
Arms open wide with
a smile on its face
it welcomes you in
and slows down the pace
Makes you a coffee
or a hot cup of tea
relaxing as always
and totally free

As they often happen after
four days of toil and fray

Lying in it…

by Jem Croucher


Guess I’ll just have to lie in the sun
then, ‘cos it’s out there and I am not
And it’s still the weekend and the next
few days look like they’re going to be hot

Walking out this morning
I felt close to end of tether
As, despite the fact that it’s now June
We still have inclement weather

Sunday is slipping from my hands

I don’t want to let it go

I need few hours more

Maybe 12, no lets make 24

Two Sundays per week fit nice in my hands
