The Sun Arose Again, by Ivor Steven

A wonderful surprise for me this morning and a lovely pick-me-up, to find that my poem “The Sun Arose Again”, had been published at ‘Red Wolf Journal’, and thank you to the editor, Irene, for her kind consideration of my submission…

The Sun Arose Again
by Ivor Steven

There must be a number of silent masks around
Yesterday an old mask flew away at the speed of sound
From behind, the real pieces of what we perceive
Are leftover bones, bleached by sky and sea
Where the worn pebbles lingering in the hand
Fall gently upon lines drawn in the sand
And these new beginnings could be a heavenly gift
As white doves soar above the mourning cliffs

Perhaps the next awakening will be a peaceful one
Full of friendly compassion and wisdom
I’m lucky today, the sun arose again
To light up the hallway, despite the rain
I’ll be the first one to walk out the door
And the only one left here, to see her valour

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 Irma… I didn’t expect this one, because I’ve already had a poem qualify the anthology, to be published later in the year….. so this means I’ll have 2 poems in the Red Wolf Journal, anthology,“The Coronavirus Poetry Issue” …Yeah…xxx

      1. I got behind with my reading this week. I know you said you were under the weather but it sounds as though I’ve missed something. Is this more than feeling a little bit off it?

    1. Thank you Derrick, and I personally liked this piece when I wrote these insightful words 5 weeks ago, and I’m thrilled to see it being published.. And the poem will also gain a position in the Red Wolf Journal’s Anthology, to be published later in the year…
