Because (a Haiku)

Hi Kerri, my little poem here has nothing to do with you, except for a deliciously tasty cheesecake and coffee … However, from way over here in Geelong, Australia, this lovely Aussie song (1970) is for you and us …


Coffee and cheesecake  

Away from a world of snakes  

The day’s scrumptious break

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.
