Serenity’s Integrity

On the wings of a graceful albatross

My serenity sign’s nurturing calmness

Like a floating cork on the world’s oceans

Gently bobbling eternally and not sinking


Early today, Phillip the friendly penguin and I

Happily kissed our newly created piece of serenity goodbye

And after lunch, when enjoying a cuppa in my courtyard

Phillip excitedly chirped, “Look Richard!”

He’s leaping and smiling, “There on the verandah wall”

Surprisingly we hear a baby ‘serenity-sign’ call

“I’m your new picture of peace and tranquillity”

“A sample from your celestial star’s integrity”

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.
