Words of Mine

I’ve given you all, my humble words

I’ve given you, my hidden soul

Words trickling, through cool mountain streams

Words dripping off the frozen ashen trees

Words gliding across the icy lakes

Words of love, drowning in the memory rains

I’ve given you all, my inner self

I’ve given you, my outer grief

Words Tumbling over the embedded rocks

Words twisting along the winding rivers

Words cascading down the forest waterways

Words sifting through my empty hands

I’ve given you all, my lonely heart

I’ve given you, my secret loves

Words of life, living under the vast oceans

Words of time, travelling to the stars beyond

Words flowing through happiness, and sorrow

Words of mine, falling dreams of tomorrow

Ivor Steven (c) August 2021

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. You’ve done all of that…and more, Ivor! You’ve done it bravely, kindly, generously! And we have benefited positively thanks to you! This gets me joy-teary-eyed.
    The Path of Poems drawing is wonderful…and that song so heart-touching.
    Keep sharing your words…words from your heart and soul…the world needs them.
