Tullawalla, Nineteen Steps

Hello dear readers and followers, I’ve been away from blogging for three days, because again, I’ve been arduously  preparing and typing, to produce my Fifteenth Tullawalla Poetry Booklet….. For new readers that don’t know about these booklets, they are basically the reason why I write poetry. I produce the booklets for the sole purpose of raising funds for my favourite charity organization, the MS Society, in Australia via the MS Charity Shop here in Geelong. And actually all money’s I receive for any of my poetry submissions, I also donate to the MS Society. Fantastic news this week, with a few more donations coming in lately, I’m proud to announce, that the sale of my “Tullawalla Booklets”, has now gone well pass $1000. 00, …  to all the lovely readers, who have donated, to help achieve such a wonderful amount,  a big heartfelt thank you from “us” and the MS Society … …..Amazingly, there is now a total of  “613 poems”, in my collection of 15 Tullawalla Booklets. Anyhow the booklet is finally completed, and ready for sale now.. !!  As always, they are available for purchase, either as a hard copy or a PDF format….. All proceeds go to the MS Charity Shop, here in Geelong West….. Please contact me here through my web site page and I can chat about arrangements from there…. Oh, the booklet is called “Tullawalla:  “Nineteen Step”, and coincidently, this, the feature poem from  my the booklet was published by FREE VERSE REVOLUTION, on Friday, 8th, February… You can visit their fabulous magazine today!!

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. Thank you Gina…. and to jointly celebrate, the 1k, I picked a bouquet of red flowers from my garden for Carole today….. .. I’m writing a little poem at the moment….. 💖🌹🌹


    1. Thank you Stephen, I started in a small way back in 2012 with my 1st booklet…… but still the same principle, with all proceeds going to the MS Society….. I’ve since improved the quality of my booklets, growing with my computer knowledge….. I was a total novice 10 years ago…….. the $1000. is what I’ve raised in the past 3 years…….I’m afraid all my previous records and data with the MS have been lost, ……I’ve estimated it would be another $600.

  1. A busy labor of love and the proceeds are for such a great cause!
    Congrats on pulling this all together! 🙂
    One of my best friends…her husband had MS for years. She cared for him, like you cared for Carole. Sadly, he passed away. When he was alive, I’d go over and keep her company and help where and when I could. A dear dear lady and friend!
