Finding Today

Hello dear readers, the poem below was originally hand written 2 weeks ago, during my stay in Isolation, and It was up on my Isolation Room’s Whiteboard, so I’ve decided to type up the poem, with a few minor changes and present the words again here today.

Your sky above

My sea below, our air in between

A cloudless dream

Floating on a gentle stream

Drifting across flat shiny pebbles

Emitting flat parallel beams

Carrying visions of hope

Hope for future scope

Time, to be wiped clean

Cleansed by soothing rain

Revealing warm sunshine again

Warm sun-rays, instead of dead X-rays

Removing yesterday’s old creams

Finding today’s new dreams

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. I’m pleased with my poem, even though I was having a tough time, I was always remaining positive, and the bottom line here is, that’s the legacy my Carole has left within me. xxxx

      2. No airport close. And we are going to be spending time vacationing with family in May on the West Coast.
        Darn. :-/

      3. Oh darn, that’s a pity, well I’ll cross you off my visit list …. I’m going to stay in New York for a few days first, then catch the train to Philadelphia to stay with my cousins for a few weeks. xxx

      4. It sounds like a wonderful trip! I’ve always wanted to visit NY. Maybe some day! πŸ™‚
        We usually do family traveling in April or May when the weather is nice all around the country. And we often make it a family reunion time. πŸ™‚
        Oh, my gosh! Thank you so much for thinking of me for your visit list. I’m honored. Maybe at another time in the future. πŸ™‚
        Guess what? When I was in Philadelphia a few years ago I wrote a poem. So I know you will be inspired to write on your trip there.
