Placing yesteryear’s photos,
In that bygone album.
Cutting window holes,
In today’s front door.
Pasting forgotten memories,
In the Bible, so forlorn.
Packing tomorrow’s cases,
Full of dusty dreams.
Clutching torn curtains,
Darkened to the outside worlds.
Passing a crumbling brick wall,
Weakened by the original fall.

Hi, and welcome to my blog site. My name is Ivor Steven, I live in Geelong, Australia. I'm a retired, part-time 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 18 months, and writing poems for nearly 18 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. Thanks Sue, it’s one of inner self poems, about an awfully tough time we were experiencing. We were facing eviction from our home, a terribly traumatic time, and these words were born out an anxiety dream/nightmare. But somehow we survived 🙄🙄

      1. Haha 😂 not feeling so magical this morning, hmmm, another one of those Christmas 🎄 parties last night. I started a nice little poem 2 Days ago, but it seems to be getting drowned over by the weekends festivities 😎💗
