“Last week in my feature at the Go Dog Go Cafe I put out a call to write a poem to introduce yourself. the idea was formed from a spoken word poetry meet I attended.
If it inspires you to write one, Pingback to here or my Come Sit With Me post and I will feature it this week at the Cafe!
No word limit but….you know what I mean!
I would really like to read who you are in your own words!
Here’s my poem, about me, Ivor.

How to write a poem about me
The boy who lives by the sea
As a youngster, I was not a loud speaker
Just shy and quiet, a daytime dreamer
With visions of yesteryear well-preserved
Good times, on the beach and in the surf
I loved Vegemite, honey and ice-cream
And my life became just a little dream
Looking at the mirror of a calm bay
I see sun-burnt freckles and dark hair, that turned grey
Struggling, life was disappearing after my Stroke
Emotionally I was crying out, who’s left to row the boat
Needing strength, my stars echoed, “I Do Thee Shine”
Now I’m left with these words of mine
Recalling all of the days in my time
Leaving my empty hands full, of memories and rhymes
