Liquid Joy 

Hello dear readers, well I’m celebrating my eighteen month anniversary of blogging, with another post originally from June 7th 2017, and I’ve rehashed the poem slightly.

Tears of liquid joy
Like rivers of fear
The memories so clear
And a toast to cheer
Tears of liquid joy
Like waves from the heart
Two great oceans apart
And wishing for another restart
Tears of liquid joy
Like dredged canals of the soul
Leaking from the broken porthole
And needing a free parole
Tears of liquid joy
Like a flowing molten lava
Passing a secret convoy
And singing like the last choirboy
Crying liquid joy

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. As always Ivor, such a brilliant piece. It is a piece which speaks to the changes which have entered my experience. I am in the process of leaving WordPress. I will continue to follow your blog via email. You have been such a pleasant experience here for me. I appreciate you. Here’s my email if you would like to stay in touch: Stay fantastic Ivor! 🤗

    1. Thank you ❤️ Tricia for your lovely comments, I thoroughly appreciate your feedback, and thanks for your email, I shall write to you. 😊 xx


  2. When I read A Writer’s Aviary a few days ago, I thought it to be one of the most lovely of your poems. Liquid Joy is a beautifully poignant poem that expresses ones innermost feelings. I have experienced the same throughout my own life. Thank-you!
