Day Lily And Love

Upon my pillow I sleep.

Good morning, I do peek.

From the cushion of my dreams.

A pads radiating beams.

Blushing red hues, oh so bright.

You bloom during the night.

After cuddling the dew.

You open up your scenic view.

Flowering, standing proud and steep.

Perfection at my feet.

A glorious Lily, like wings of a dove.

And by Day you air your love.

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.

    Those lines are just so delicious I had to point them out to you.

      1. I think I’d burst, and all my poems would turn to those soft marshmallow ones, like all those ……….. (can’t say here)……. whoops xxxxxxxxxx


  2. Ohhh Wow! Simply beautiful poetry. I write about things in nature so well. I love the variety in which you write also! I try that on my blog in a less beautiful and more crazy unorganized way lol. You are a fantastic writer!:)
