I SHALL BE SILENT

by thereluctantpoet

By Charles Robert Lindholm

If the words
that You read
by my hand
hurt You

I shall lay down my pen
and not write
for I never
ever want to hurt
the heart of My Friend

If the words
that I said
cut You

The Shape of You (Rae’s Song Revisited)

by braveandrecklessblog

Tiny white lights twinkle

nocturnal noises provide a rhythm

for conversation’s give and take

We wrap each other gently in words

painting a night sky canvas together

giving glimpses

of our separate worlds

universes apart

REAL TIME

by thereluctantpoet

By Charles Robert Lindholm

Separated by time and space

denied the warmth of Her gentle embrace

Her words they kiss me, though I know

I will never touch Her face

Hamlet’s Words

by scatterednotebooks

Hamlet called them words
in his feigned madness.
To him they were words – mere words,
but to me they might mean so much more.

The backside of the night

I gave in, got up and then
tippy-toeing down the stairs
grabbed my book and pen

Writing at night

by Jem Croucher

In the small hours when
silence is my company
And my pen scribbles words
as they flow fancy free
The verse and the rhyme
to the page come with ease
So this is the time that
the poet will seize

Phantoms No More

You took the phantoms
from my life
locked ’em up and out of site
with gentle hands, a simple kiss

Cardiff

by Jem Croucher

Made my way to Cardiff
on a Sunday afternoon
Six hours on a railway train
views from hotel room
The city streets below me
Welsh and English on the signs
Old and new in contrast
amongst the ancient lines

The Blank Page

by Jem Croucher

like a blank page in a book
And with my pen there poised and ready
paused for a lingering look

A journey begun…

by Jem Croucher

 

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

Writing

by Jem Croucher

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

A problem that we poets face
with discomfort and malaise
Is to not feel much like writing
for days and days and days
But then all of a sudden
something will inspire
And then not much can stop us
as we really are on fire

Meantime here’s some cyclamen…

by Jem Croucher

fullsizeoutput_19d9

I’m afraid I’ll not be posting
for five days from the morrow
No poetry from Jemverse
which I know will bring some sorrow

But although I’m incognito
I’ll be writing every day
More poems for my repertoire
Three cheers! Hip, Hip, Hooray!

Finding Rhyme

by Jem Croucher

imgp1191

Every once in every while
as I write I find a smile
It has a lot to do with style
and sometimes just a little guile
So as I write I find that I’ll
find words which rhyme which I’ll compile
All to combine to my profile

I blink and it’s the end of day
I’ve done my best through frack and fray
But still I wish for more

Protest about the ever growing voilence of our world.

I was a lost word
Bereft, I had searched in vain
for inclusion in a verse

But on this last day
my searching is completed
and I take my place with pride

Seeking Inspiration

by Jem Croucher

20161121_074914

I’m seeking inspiration
but don’t need to look too far
For it’s everywhere around me
if I’m not particular
I could write about the weather
or something that I’ve seen
or someone that I’ve met or
even somewhere new I’ve been

Midnight petrichor
The earth calls me to her
and night-time takes me there
Sometimes my best words
come in the small hours
when I should be deep in slumber
