Wonderment Rings True

My imagination’s beaming

Alive and dreaming

Even when I’m sleeping

Tired eyes are peeping

Searching for the milky-way

Flying there, on my open sleigh

And sailing the air-waves

High above broadway

Steering my spacecraft, Itmims**

While reading The Brothers Grimm

And playing a tune on my old violin

The theme from ‘Lord of the Rings’

I’m a visionary sky Pilot

With a handful of violets

Travelling beyond a silvery moon

To float upon our blue lagoon

**Itmims; ”Ivor’s Time Machine In Micro Space”….

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. Wonderful to escape now and again, especially on a damp and dreary morning such as the one I’ve woken up to. The highlight of my day may well be admiring the shiny new recycling bin that the council have just delivered!
    I sent you an e-mail last night, in fact I sent two, the second one because I forgot to add the attachment to the first! Nothing special so don’t get excited. 🙂

      1. Oh no, I’m so sorry, that must be so difficult for you. Selfish spreaders have much to answer for.
        The infections are rising again here too and blamed on the 18 – 34 age groups. They see everything reopening and no longer care about social distancing!
