Faeries Calming the Soul

Faeries Calming The Soul


Today’s cool breeze, has dried my eyes

And I’m comfy, under this shady palm

Watching, sparkling faerie ripples on the bay

And silvery clouds waving to me from the sky

I see faerie footprints upon ageless sand

And the town’s daily ferry-boat sails by

I’m bathing in this day’s caressing faerieΒ balm

And my fragile soul’s reciprocating the calm

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. Now that is a very relaxing scene, exactly what I need at this time of night. I’m just about to switch off my bedside light and shall picture your sea, sand and boats as the night time fairies carry me off to sleep. Good night, Ivor.πŸ™‚πŸ˜΄

    Just thinking about those faeries flitting about leaving their footprints and ripples makes me smile! πŸ™‚ I’m sure they ARE the ones who make the water sparkle like silver glitter!
    HUGS!!! πŸ™‚
