Stale Air

Stale Air.  A Haiku


Are we the drowned ones

Laying beside our beached whales

Unable to breathe

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. Aw. 😦
    Yes, some people don’t care about the whales…maybe that’s why they don’t seem to care about the safety and health of other people. 😦
    We should care and be helping all of nature AND our fellow-travelers on the earth.
    Such a timely, powerful haiku, Ivor!

    1. That’s the point I was trying to make in my Haiku… If we are not good enough to look after our whales/nature….. how are we going to look after each other…. xxx
