An Evening Walk

I follow your halo of light

Sharing a moonlit walk tonight

Darkness surrounds our paradise

The air is as cool as ice

Street lights are moth covered dim

Evening breeze cowered thin


I turn to you

You smile

As you always do

I hold your hand

You hold mine

As you always do

Warm and true

I forever feel you

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 you know I’m a great fan of David Francey, and my words came to me while I was out walking Cyndy last night, after I got home from the pub, hmmm, maybe it’s a good combination for writing poetry, half tanked, walking a dog, cool evening air !! 😉

      1. Hi Kate, I’m just out of bed, I’ve had a chest cold and cough for a few days, but that’s Ok and lucky I guess, it’ll be gone by the time my trip starts. How’s things up there, have you had your home fitting off finished yet. I’m thinking of you, and wishing you well. No poem from Ivor today yet,,, didn’t get much sleep, with my cough and a dog on my pillow looking at me as if I was some sort of noisy alien.
