A Universe Within, a Haiku

In this Universe

Love’s our universe within

Our own shining star

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 Cheryl, for your cheery comments. I’ve been fasting this morning for my heart test at the hospital… At the Box Office Café, now having a late breakfast, and happy that the test is over 😊💙🌏☕
