Under Pressure

Here I’ve written a Haiku Trio, a poem consisting of three haiku stanzas

Under Pressure

 

Bitter is the clown

A broken pepper stays down

Anger’s every town

 

Flames leap all around

Burning bridges to the ground

Hatred is the sound

 

High above the clouds

Songs echo under pressure

Screaming for new air

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.
