One Living Cell

For every word

There is a breathe

In every breathe

Hurt and love dwell

Exhale hate

Inhale hope

See beyond the telescope

Hear that ringing bell

The universe is one living cell

An embryo’s brittle eggshell

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 for understanding my little poem, I am not sure myself, … we are the air we breathe, and we all breathe within this one bubble, called the “Universe”, and then beyond our universe .. yep.. many more universe’s.

      1. They will be very gentle pats, she’s nearly 15, old enough to be Coop’s grandmother… Little Tina needs a bit of extra care, but softie Ivor is coping ok… She enjoyed her outing to the Box Office Café, and has been sound asleep (snoring loudly) since we got home 😊😴🐶

      2. You will be a good safe place for her to be herself. 🙂
        Well…Coop is 12, so he’s not far behind her in age.
        Right now he’s sleeping at my feet and snoring loudly.
        He and Little Tina would get a long great! 😀
