Wondering And Wandering

Wondering And Wandering


So early, on this cold summers day.

A gloomy morn, grey clouds reflect the way.

No desire to arise, come what may.

An empty bed, here I could stay

Sad and alone, wondering I pray.

Would love find home, while wandering astray.

G'day, and welcome to my blog site. My name is Ivor Steven, I live in Geelong, Australia. I'm an ex-industrial chemist, and a retired plumber, and a former Carer of my wife(Carole), for 30 years, who suffered from severe MS. I Write poetry about those personal thoughts, throughout and beyond my life as a Carer. I've been blogging for over 2 years, and writing poems for 19 years. Of course a lot of my poems are about my favourite subject Carole, but since I've been blogging my writings have become quite varied, humourous, mystical, observational, and even a few monster/horror poems.

    1. A very old poem, ah, them old grey clouds. Carole had to be moved to a bedroom for herself and all her special needs. It was all so very strange, so hard to explain about life throughout all those 30 years. I suppose my words are a 30 year story/journey ♡


      1. She always had such a big smile for me, every day, every morning despite the suffering, haha, lots more of those words from Ivor’s archives to come ••


    1. Tricia, “OH GOD”, you’ve read so many of my poems, feeling quite humbled. If you have the time, a few of my earlier posts are some of my personal favorites, This Lost Shadow, Haven’t Seen You For A While, Where’s That Dream, and I think you might enjoy Waterways, Cheers ♡♡


      1. 😄 Ok. I was working my through to the earlier work, but I got sleepy. I’m in NYC so it was past midnight.
