Flowers for the Poet

On the wings of a dove

Hope glides in with love

As pure as a floating lotus

There rests flowers for the poet

This is who I am

This is what I do

I hear white ocean sounds

I see bright blue skies

And I smell the red roses

I watch the busy bees

And I climb our life-giving trees

Where the universe sings to me from above

There is nothing standing in the way

To stop the softening flow of love

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.
