Swallowed By The Sun

I’ve re-posted this poem, on “Go Dog Go Cafe” via their site’s wonderful idea of “Promote Yourself Monday” , and I’d like to thank Michelle, for giving me this fantastic opportunity to present my poem, Swallowed By The Sun, Please Click >> Hereย  to read about Go Dog Go Cafe ….

On a fiery hot suburban street

Cobblestones are burning the crowds feet

Bursting blisters, on the ignorant

Touching souls, of the innocent

Solar heat’s scorching from the sky

Our world is being swallowed by the sun

Oh, what have us human’s done

All the rivers are running dry

Fish lay on barren land, waiting to die

Polar icebergs are often seen gliding by

Penguins are moaning without their icy slide

And you’ll hear the groan of baby whales cry

As the ocean, sadly waves us goodbye

Knowing our angels wings are singed and cannot fly

Old mother earth is quickly growing awry

And father time is forever asking why

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.
