About jemverse

I’ve been writing poems for as long as I can remember; certainly since childhood, more so in adulthood. I write about everything and anything – whatever inspires me. So there’s a lot about the sea and Sussex where I live; about music and nature and summer. About the changing of the seasons; about my family and my garden and my animals and my imagination. But I have words too for feelings – for pensive mood; for sadness and melancholy; for happiness and joy; for just about everything life chooses to throw at us from time to time.

For me words are for life and the joy of using them to capture a moment is all part of this.

Jemverse is my life in words

And here’s another poem…

Your words

I am your words, there for the taking.

Sometimes accepted, sometimes not. Yet I remain.

Captured, I am released. But no malice there, or jealousy.

For I am yours, and always will be

To use as you will; to leave as you choose.

When you find me, I am crafted

Like clay to the potter, to form or substance

A thing of beauty. For I am your words

Kind regards

Jem Croucher

Flightless Birds

[Chained Haiku]

Young minds possess wings

of imagination to

explore a new life.

Equipped with new dreams,

they paint the sky with zeal and

chirp new ideas.

But cruel winds of

despair and darkness tear their

wings of innocence.

They make young birds toil

to slavery and prison

their fresh thoughts; to die.

Exploiting freedom

of youthful souls, they turn them

into flightless birds.

[ The poem is about child labor and exploitation ]

Thank you,   Amreen Shaikh for your contribution.

Burden to Savor


A soft, holy morning like this

Awake in bed before dawn

Forcing my thoughts of you


Upon you


Full, ready body

Full, ready thoughts

Soft, holy distance


All upon you


Keep yourself well and happy

For I know certain things about us

That are likely to trouble you

But I will bear the complete burden


For now and until then 


There Will be Time


Twenty-six is not that young:

it is old enough to list a few

college degrees, linear work

experience and a promising



By now, I should not fear bad

poem topics, closing new

documents unsaved or rewriting

this phrase: Carve out its clay

center; cook the silhouette



I am on time and in time.

Urgency grows, demands

that I begin to


my time.


One hundred visions and revisions

That a moment will unwind
