After the Party

I’m wallowing here at my desk 

feeling spent and exhausted 

and I hear the day’s echo’s resounding 

as my pulse rate is pounding 

and like a fish out of water I’m floundering 

flipping, thrashing, and blundering

I’m waiting here, beached and pondering 

what is to become of my words that are slumbering

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. Of course dear Mich, but you shall have to be patient, I’m having trouble getting my Author’s copies being shipped because of ‘COVID’ restrictions .. things are not normal my friend 😄🌏🌎
      The drawback of having my book published in America. .. which wasn’t a factor when I began my book project with Fae Corps Publishing
