I Shower You All, A Thousand Kisses Deep

Family, friends and followers

Lend me yours ears

I’ve only been blogging

Not even two years

A medium I did not understand

A venue way exceeding my expectations

A happening beyond my imagination

A journey I lovingly shared

I have enjoyed every unsteady step

What else can I say

I shower you all, “A Thousand Kisses Deep”

And my Nautilus is awash with likes

Fifty Thousand Leagues (likes) Under The Sea

In my ocean full of pleasure and love

I Thank you all

I am not drowning, but resurrected

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.

  2. What a lovely post Ivor! First of all, congrats! Love how you have put all the elements of this post together. Your beautifully heartfelt poem is the very expression of love and kindness, a magnificent tribute to your journey and to those around you in the wondrous realms of wordpress.com. I strongly believe in the karma effect of give and take this platform offers. The image of the Nautilus and the “Fifty Thousand Leagues (likes) Under The Sea” is very powerful. Love it! As for the music selection I always enjoy what you choose because it is high quality. And as I think I told you, I am also a great fan of Leonard Cohen. His poem is so beautiful, deep and lyrical. Wish you a lovely day and let your Nautilus keep its journey in the oceans of love and pleasure.

    1. Oh Marta, thank you for your overwhelming comments, your kind words have touched me deeply
      The story of Nautilus is a moving saga of comradeship, that went well with my poem, and Leonard’s words are superb. I found the Chris Botti music version of his song to be quite emotional….. ((Hugs))

      1. The world’s first preview for you Chris of my poem for tomorrow…..

        On a starry Autumn night
        Laying under the cosmic sky
        I see a universe beyond
        The galaxyโ€™s, milky way
        With unnumbered orbiting planets
        Astronomerโ€™s, clearly hearing their sound
        Radars that echo, thereโ€™s no shadow of doubt
        Out there somewhere
        In the vastness of space
        Another similar earth, co-exists

        Do those purple aliens
        Wait and wonder
        Look to the cosmos and ponder
        When will humanity arrive
        Invading their picturesque, violet atmosphere
        Ravaging innocent foreign lives
        Bowing to the human war cry
        Assimilate or die


  4. Congratulations Ivor!
    Leonard Cohen… how did he do it? How did he create such perfect poetry? Such perfect love. He renders even the most beautiful work of the greatest poets obsolete. There has never been anyone like him.
