Phantoms No More

by scatterednotebooks

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

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

A journey begun…

by Jem Croucher

fullsizeoutput_311

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

and sleeping as I write
My faithful hound called ‘Obi’
is a lovely sight

The poet’s echo

by Jem Croucher

There was a moment
part of night-time and silence
in the small hours when
a whisper sounded like a shout

Time II

by Jem Croucher

Somedays have legs, they run away
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

by dinamicdynasty

In my minds eye I protest,

Protest about the ever growing voilence of our world.

Protest about the ever growing pain.

I open my mouth to speak

Lost word – sedoka

by Jem Croucher

dscn2189

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

Illusive

yet I still await the one
Illusive, it’s beyond my reach
although the words still come

Midnight inspiration

by Jem Croucher

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

Privilege to share

by Jem Croucher

20160913_181553

Another lovely end of day
in my favourite place
Sitting in the sunshine
with a big smile on my face
I’d take a little selfie
but I’m pretty sure that you
Would rather see some beach huts
from my favourite sea view

Between words

by The Cheesesellers Wife

Between words

Between words
When spoken, are the painful pauses
The hidden meanings
The thinking time
The space to ruin it all
With a trite response
A hurt reaction
When written?

A Dance With Poetry

Like a velvet ribbon

Wrapped around perfect silk

You burst into my world

Soaking me into your intricate softness.

Words (for lantern challenge)

by Rhyme In Time

Words:
More than
syllables
concatenate.
Soul.

 

More of a lava lamp shape I suppose. 🙂

Sans ubiquity

That’s a highbrow way of saying
I’ll not be here awhile
But it won’t be for long and
I’ll return soon with a smile

Sharp Tongue

by A. Marie

Compacted neatly into bite-sized balled needles,
my internal epidemics huck out.

They vomit forward:
as adjectives as nouns as verbs as plurals;
damnable daggering hounds stretching necks
far ahead to snap maws
tight around unsuspecting jugulars.

Rare moments

by Jem Croucher

IMGP0299

Capturing rare moments
bring a soliloquy
even if I’m by myself
‘tho most would still agree
For there’s substance in these words
which rings true with everyone
The joy of finding heaven
is a thing which must be done

On the South Downs for a blast

Quiet & Unassuming

by Jem Croucher

DSCN2189

As a poet I find pleasure
in writing every day
Capturing a moment
about life in such a way
that when I read my words
back quietly on reflection
they take on board a meaning
to inspire with recollection
