Today here is another poem, that didn’t make the final list, and was ‘cut’ from my new Book “Tullawalla”… Although happily I am proud to announce that “Downhill Run” will be published in ‘Prolific Pulse’s’ upcoming Anthology “Heart Beats”, coming out in March…


Downhill Run

I was dreaming

Plotting and scheming

I followed you skiing

Running the slopes gliding

Twists and twirls

Loops and hoops

Downhill and dancing

Our hearts were racing

Spirals and swirls

Joyous smiles

Swishing faster and faster

Swooping last to first

Silver and gold

Winners and grinners

Your curls unfurl

Ruby hair unfolds

Beauty I behold

Frozen bliss

We kiss

Soul to soul

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. This poem is lovely…I can see Carole smiling! Yes, life can be exciting, dangerous, weary-ing, up and down, long in days, fast in years, etc…but always find the fun!
    Congrats on this poem getting published! I think it’s one of your bestest ones!
    (((HUGS))) 🙂
