A Tequila Sunrise

Uncovered digits

Exposed and frigid

Purple chilblain arrows

Hero’s beyond zero

My bare toes froze

Icicles fell off my nose

As I searched for warm clothes

And a shot of Tequila from Mexico

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. Don’t be, this is Yorkshire and hot weather is usually short-lived! What we need now is some of the rain that the South East (Derrick’s home) has been enjoying. 🙂

  1. Wonderful poem! It love it! It made me grin! And it makes me feel cooler on what is a hot day here. Ha! 😀
    If you mail me some cold I’ll mail back some warm! HA! 😀
    Cover up your bare digits and please stay warm and safe!
    (((HUGS))) 🙂
