The week that was

Five days of contrast

Excitement on Monday and Tuesday

With live YouTube interviews

Exhileration on Wednesday

With the launch of my book

Profound sadness on Thursday

With the funeral of a close mate

Joy and happiness on Friday

With the seventieth birthday party

Of a long time friend

The cycle of life ’til the end

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.
