The Poet’s Pen

by Jem Croucher

Never still the poet’s pen
always a verse to find
be it one that comes from life
or like this one, from the mind

Never still the poet’s pen
creativity abounds
cathartic is the rhythm
those pen to paper sounds

Never still the poet’s pen
for there’s so much to say
captured in a few short lines
and posted by the day

Something I do

by Jem Croucher

It’s been said before
but my pen can’t keep still
as I write every day
on a whim and a will
Words about life
I see around me
and the things that I do
and the world that I see

The echo of life II

by Jem Croucher

If a story speaks
and brings a tear
spilled out without reserve
from an eye that knows pleasure
If a landscape catches
and a breath is held long
whilst a moment is safisfied
Then I am the echo of life
Relecting beauty
I bring contentment

Foot prints of mind

by dharkanein

All the memories I gathered
Leave some imprints in mind

The deeds I did, the love I got
All stored up in mind

The hate I felt, the pain I hid
Stored up in mind

Revisiting Life in Words

by Jem Croucher

No.7 of 7 in “The Word” series from Jemverse

I like writing poems
I write one every day
‘Cos there’s lots in life to write about
and it’s nice to have a say
I’ll write about the sunshine
and I’ll write about the sea
I’ll write about ‘most anything
and sometimes simply me

Revisiting wordsmith

Revisiting quiet and unassuming

by Jem Croucher

No.5 of 7 in “The Word” series from Jemverse

in writing every day
Capturing a moment

back quietly on reflection
they take on board a meaning
to inspire with recollection

Revisiting a journey begun

by Jem Croucher

No.4 of 7 in “The Word” series from Jemverse

I try to write a poem every single day
Sparing time for words about working or just play
About eating stuff or sleeping or drinking cups of tea
Or listening to music or walking by the sea

Revisiting Painting with words

by Jem Croucher

No.3 of 7 in “The Word” series from Jemverse

When painting with words
the writing room floor
is splattered with cast-offs
from poems and more

Yet none of them wasted
as words always find
their place in creation
from a poet’s mind

sometimes I’m droll
sometimes I’m witty

When the poetry is done

by Jem Croucher

I’ll wrap these words around me
like a comfort blanket they
Calming me and warming
in a very special way

I’ll take these words and scatter
like confetti to the breeze
to celebrate the marriage
of a verse to rhymes like these
