Jemverse II

So I’ve been writing for a while
a poem every day
Been doing this for fifty years
so I’ve along the way
picked up (I’d say) a trick or two
over all that time
of how to craft words into verse
which flow and nicely rhyme

I’ve had a lot of practice
and that makes perfect as you know
But there again my writing
still has a ways to go
‘Cos I’m always getting better
as there’s a lot to learn
of how to craft life into words
for others to discern

So I’ll just keep on writing
as life has lots to say
with Jemverse as my outlet
for new poems by the day

The Poet’s Pen

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

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

It’s something I do
Lifeblood of my being
Capturing words
about all I am seeing
And when I have written
something else that I do
is publish them daily
and share them with you

The echo of life II

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

Revisiting Life in words

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

I have words describing places
and the music that I hear
and the people that I daily meet
and sometimes share a beer
So I’m sure to always have to hand
a book and yes, a pen
‘Cos words can come at any time
and I’m never certain when

Revisiting wordsmith

No.6 of 7 in “The Word” series from Jemverse

Deep in the silence
of a warm summer night
I encountered a thought
and held on to it tight

With lucidity
born of an erudite mind
It was something quite special
for me to find

For it spoke of a gift
bequeathed to a few
Which, when spoken aloud
would give birth to the new

The craft of a wordsmith
writing a verse
Born of the one
but to many dispersed

Then, humbled I realised
that the wordsmith was me
And that these words I was writing
were the ones to set free.

Revisiting quiet and unassuming

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

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

Quiet and unassuming
I publish daily on my blog
something I have written
which then acts as a log
Sharing just a little
with anyone who cares to read
Wherever they may be worldwide
in whatever life they lead

Sometimes they might add a ‘like’
and then, once in a while
might add a little comment
or a pictographic ‘smile’
It’s always very humbling
when I read what people say
Makes me proud to be a poet
as it brightens up my day

So I will keep on writing
because that is what I am
It’s something that I need to do
and I write because I can
Finding ways to capture life
in words which mostly rhyme
Then sharing these with you out there
to read from time to time
