Here’s my response to this weeks prompt


Black and White


A calmness follows

The healing of night

As the dark moon

Sinks from sight

Leaving no shadow

Upon this blight

Arise lonely soul

Into the stillness of light

The heart throbs again

As blackness turns white

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. I played the music and listened while I read your poem several times. It made me sigh. 🙂

    It’s always so comforting to see and feel the light. And we can be hopeful (and grateful) that it will return. 🙂
