Zither

 

Chinese courtyard sounds

Guzheng music gently strums

Beijing alley hums

Hi, and welcome to my blog site. My name is Ivor Steven, I live in Geelong, Australia. I'm a retired, part-time 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 9 months, and writing poems for nearly 18 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. Thank you Colleen, you inspired me to write something about that lovely event of being entertained in an old Chinese family home, and the actual house was 500 years old, … I felt so privileged to be there……..
