Tit Bits #15

I’ve not written one these for a while, and I’ve enough of my comments stored in my NoteBook file to fill War And Peace !! Thank you to all of my dear readers who comment on my writings, I am forever grateful, and you all continue to inspire me to write these short poetry pieces about your marvelous posts.

 

I used to say, mum was the one

Dad was always there, daddy number one

Carole came along, she was my only one

They’re gone, I was left with no-one

Myself has become an intimate one

To you all, I cannot do without everyone

I love sharing my life

I love talking about my wife

Even though I’ve seen so much strife

She wouldn’t have it any other way

She graciously fought on, every day

My story will never explain her everlasting smile

My future is about trying, for her every mile

I know those old photo album feelings

Old memories and dusty dreams

Your heart does miss a beat

They’ll be tears at your feet

You’ll need a comfy seat

Bathe in the images, so sweet

Life’s rotation process is endless

Watermill wheels keep on turning

I’m writing on recycled paper

Word’s of purpose are not useless

Morning birds sing, but do not see

By day, I’ll look like a tree

Like a lonely Tawny Frog-mouth Owl

By night, hear my wisdom howl

Beware, there’s more

You’ll be shown the door

By the bolt of Thor

 

I’ve been inspired by my tour of yesterdays street art in Geelong, and the magnificent mural of Chrissy Amphlett, so here she is, singing with the Divinyls

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. Oh Carolyn, your continuing support and encouragement, is enough to melt my heart, and I’ve no idea why my writings, are received so magnanimously, but I am gradually realising my poems are ok. I basically write to appease my soul, I am a deeply emotional person, and at one stage I thought I was damaged beyond repair, but through my writing, I’ve come in from the cold, I smile again, my heart beats again, I see the outside world again, “I can touch my nose again” Thank you dear Carolyn. xxxxxoooo

    1. I’m not very good with big words anyway, however, I think simplicity is both easy to understand, and if can understand the words, then there’s far emotion being received by the reader. Thanks for reading xx

      1. I thought that I’d dreamt this comment and then decided to come looking! They’re doing well! They had ringworm so my fiance has been dealing with clearing that up while I’ve had to return to England. I’ll be back with them soon though! They’re all getting so big!
