Rocking Shoes

I’m not using grand-dad’s rocking chair yet

I’ve a pair of rocking shoes instead

Walk the streets of New York in soft treads

No matter, I’ll always have this pain in my head

 

As long as I don’t fall in the gutter

And left there, to crawl and stutter

I’ve sites to view through my shutter

Cafe’s to visit, eating cakes, jam and butter

 

I’ll click my new shoe’s heels

Stroll around, play beside the local seals

Go to Central Park, soar with the eagles

And savour the famous restaurant meals

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. Yes, and I’m home now. The results/tests, didn’t clear my name, they’re still not sure of what’s causes these problems, but they are hoping my new medications might be able to help control my clots. Anyhow, I can continue with my rehab program, so it’s all system go again. xx

      1. I’m not quite on song
        Home’s where I belong
        Humming ballad songs
        I’m going, right or wrong

        I’ve made up my mind
        Even though life’s unkind
        We only live once
        And this is my dance

        Dreams are living on
        Life shouldn’t be postponed
        Realities push and thrive
        My future is still alive

        She’ll gently take my hand
        And show me the distant lands

      Life shouldn’t be postponed
      Realities push and thrive
      My future is still alive

      She’ll gently take my hand
      And show me the distant lands
