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.

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. Hi Ivor. I couldn’t leave a comment on the Go Dog site for some reason, so thought I’d come back here.
    This poem is so moving!

    (I’m happy to say my husband is hopefully done with chemo. We’re taking one day at a time.)

    Hope you’re doing well.

Florida is like a group of lemmings on their way to drown in the sea! Yes, we are all sick of the pandemic!
