Paradise Beach


Paradise Beach


on and on we must go

we the mighty who dare

to venture above and beyond

our drab old vaudeville show


join the journey of discovery

out there in search of the Milky Way

swim on our universe’s distant shores

where there’s sure to be a stellar star

completely made of compassion

held together by oceans full of love


our beach, a united paradise

one nation, within our reach

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.

  2. Great poem Ivor! The perfect beach can be a paradise!
    Today on this 4th of July in the states, many beaches are closed due to the upsurge of Covid-19! Bad news for the economy for sure.
    Have a great day! Stay warm!

      2. It’s a poem from a few years ago when I was a monthly writer for “Slasher Monster Magazine” which has been defunct for a couple of years. 😂😊

  3. Delightful and dreamy!!! 🙂 The universe does so much to make our lives wonderful…we should always remember to treat it in kind. 🙂 And keep dreaming those night-dreams and those day-dream, Ivor! 🙂 It’s so wonderful how dreams often shed light on the answers to life…and so much more. 🙂
