We Are Strange

A special mention and thank you to Ingrid, for being the source of my inspiration behind my words today, with her very intriguing poem “Reclusive Romance”, you can visit her fabulous site by clicking on this link >> https://experimentsinfiction.com/2021/11/11/reclusive-romance-poetry-dverse/#more-17442

We Are Strange

how high is the sky?

how warm is the air?

how strong is wind?

can we fly without?

celestial wings

how deep is the river?

how cold is the water?

how strong is the current?

why do we always need?

a search warrant

why do we still jump in?

why do we still try to swim?

do we want to know?

the answers

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. Love the flow of this one…and the message!
    Important questions we’ve all pondered.
    I am proud of my weirdness…it’s a good fun weird! πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜›
    If everyone was the same, life would be boring! πŸ˜‰
    PS…great song/vid!

  2. I think in the end, after all the weather reports and Consumer Reports and five-star recommendations, human beings still often act on impulse. They choose what speaks to them. Today I bought a dress on impulse, something I wouldn’t usually do. The last several years I thought clothes were so ugly…but this dress was beautiful, and made in India, by the way! πŸ™‚

    I love your poem, Ivor! I hope my interpretation is not too far off the mark!
