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. This is very poignant, Ivor. I think a lot of us wonder how far we want to take writing and pour over the why we do things the way we do, is it enough, etc. I love how this started out almost in questioning yourself as a writer and morphed into a progressive self acceptance. When looking into mirrors, we tend to scrutinize before accepting and then seeing some good. Well done.

    You express yourself so beautifully in poems…but if you did give a bigger writing a go…you’d do well with that, too! πŸ™‚
    Your poems are filled with wisdom, honesty, heart-felt emotions, encouragement, etc! They are so relatable! πŸ™‚
