She Knows

She Knows


Sitting on the cafe deck

Sheltering under the verandah

Sipping on a hot coffee

Listening to life’s melodies


Raw rain is tumbling across town

Mother Nature’s roaring sound

Amplifies her tears slapping the ground

As her dark clouds wrinkle into a frown


Mother Nature knows the snow is turning brown

She knows the sky is her world’s tarnished crown

She knows her crown is gradually breaking down

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. Oh. She definitely knows. Such a heartbreaking poem, Ivor.
    Mother Nature knows the snow is turning brown

    She knows the sky is her world’s tarnished crown

    She knows her crown is gradually breaking down

    I hope that we’ll do all we can to ease her suffering.

    1. Yes indeed Carolyn … I have this inner urgent feeling, that she needs our help now … what are they for … if the snow turns black, there will be no turning back .. 🌏🖤⬛
