Beyond Imagination

Next year, after Easter

I’m flying north

Across a vast ocean

Towards a place called America

From the west to the east coast

Landing at the big apple

Taking a small bite, five days

Then a train from Grand Central Station

For a debut meeting with my cousins in Philadelphia

My Dad’s far away relatives

I shall rejoice in the reunion our family’s spirits

Oh yes, the dream of my lifetime

A fortuity beyond the realms of my imagination

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. No, but I’ve spent most of the day with my own Doctor, and then into out-patients, to visit my medical team, looks like i’ve had lots of little mini-strokes, maybe caused be an infection in/on the heart, all very complicated, and more tests and procedures, over the next few weeks…. the investigations are continuing Watson !!

      2. Oh there’s a few positives, and the Doctor’s are happy that I’m still slowly improving and that the fever’s have stopped 🤗😁💛


      3. Yes the Doc’s are calm, they’re still trying to find the source of my problem, hope my heart procedures will discover something. 😊 😊 ❤️


      4. The whole process is quite tiring and of course I can’t help but worry a bit, although I’m still positive 💛🤗😁I’m glad I’m a writer, it keeps my mind busy 🤗😀

Oh it was 40’C here yesterday and 28’C over night, 😉 so it was a tough day for me all round, and I suppose my attitude got me through and I coped with everything ok and it’s a bit cooler today, and I’m feeling ok, and thank you ❤️ for your kindness, all the support for me is definitely heart-warming xxcx
