Throwback Friday, Morning Whispers, by Ivor Steven

Again the ‘rebog button’ didn’t work on my ‘Go Dog Go Cafe’ site, so I have copied and pasted my article here on own WP site for my followers to enjoy

‘Morning Whispers’ is a poem I wrote from under the shelter of my courtyard verandah, back in June (winter) 2018 ..



Morning Whispers

whistling palms

visions of calm

looking up and over

my verandah roof

above, neighbouring windbreak trellis

through the whispering

a drooping willow tree

sheltered aside

by dark-green cypress pines

beyond their leaf’s silhouette

the sky’s a clear

morning blue

no gathering clouds in sight

my future arises bright





Ivor Steven (c) June 2018

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. View all posts by ivor20

    “This night will end
    This heart will mend
    And I’ll smile again
    Tomorrow morning
    As right as rain
    As pure and plain
    I will rise again
    Tomorrow morning…” 🙂
