Invisible Miracles

Yesterday I attended a ‘Writing Circle’ poetry group meeting, hosted by Ali Grimshaw, via a Zoom video link-up, and “Invisible Miracles” was one of the poems I wrote during the session. You can visit her Writing Circle site by clicking on this link >

Invisible Miracles

I am not black nor white

I am not day nor night

I am neither sand nor sea

I am not a flower or a bee

I am not wrong or right

I am not heavy or light

I am Clear and free

I am a cool ocean breeze

I am a song we breathe

I am the air from our trees

I am a star above your grave

I am a shy sound wave

I can be brave

I am your invisible slave

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. Ivor,
    I so enjoyed hearing your words arrive on the page. What a wonderful poem. It was already inside of you waiting to come out.

    Keep shining your light, Ivor.

  2. Ivor, I like how the poem moves from the obvious, mostly visible things in the first verse to the much more subtle, invisible miracles in the second verse. The only thing that is visible in the second verse is the star, and it is only visible at night. πŸ™‚

  3. Beautiful melodic words in your poem, Ivor.
    I found it to be so meaningful. It’s a credit to your writing talent that it was written in 5 minutes. The song is touching. I loved the words and the music. I always appreciate the music you add. I find they pull a post together but it also has a way of introducting it to those who’ve never listened to a particular artist. I’ve been listening to classical violin music as of late to calm myself from all the worldly trials we’re going through. Sending you a healing hug of kindness … Be Safe 😷

    1. Thank you Isadora for your lovely comments,, and I enjoy the process of finding a song to suit my poem, and it pleases me greatly that my readers enjoy the music too. 🎢😊🌏
