Below And Beyond

I’ve been given a pusher

The bullet train’s due

Woosh, and I’ll be away

Beyond what the eye can see

Below the seven levels

Where the big round catz hang out

I’ll be laying low

Ready for the scan

The job was a buzz

I’m back to reality

Now waiting for the game results

Today’s another new day

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. Wonderful poem, Ivor! Perfect trio of poem, photo, and title! πŸ™‚
    Yes, today is another new day. Must always remember that!
    But, sometimes the waiting for the results can be difficult!
    Hang in there and keep up your positive and very fine spirit!

      2. how odd Ivor, we were supposed to have wiped that out years ago … if you have you will need a sanatorium rest/cure house stay and sadly for quite a while. But does sound like they are getting there … no rescue until you know, sad for you 😦
        But it’s not terminal!

      5. oh I mean it too Ivor, horrid to be bubbled and feel like a leper … they used to clutch me in India and I never caught that, we get so fragile and worried about things … you are in good care πŸ™‚

      6. Difficult for such an active man but bed rest it is … snooze and listen to all the music you want .. and think these headaches should have a diagnosis and treatment soon so things will only get better πŸ™‚
