Blossom Over Jerusalem

I write about the purple moon

That eats the night with a silver spoon

I write about the yellow sun

That bathes our day with gold by the ton


I hear the bird’s morning songs

They caress the world’s souls, right or wrong

I hear the animals’ mighty roars

They remind us of the great outdoors


I see the blue sky above

Where life’s white doves carry our love

I see the green pastures, beyond Jerusalem

Where life’s fruit trees blush with blossom

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. David’s voice just hits all the right spots.
        I’m sitting here feeling so grateful for all the good people and things in my life!
        I feel so broken and sad for the peoples in the world who don’t have the luxury of self-isolating in a safe home.

    1. Yes, the poem is quite an epic story of bits and pieces, with my last 2 lines being a touch Biblical… I’m in bed now.. Nite nite 😴😊
