Kissed By An Angel

Hello readers and followers, I am happy to say that I am home after my operation on my elbow and recovering well ..

Kissed By An Angel

According to ancient folklore

From foreign shores

I should be grateful

For being kissed on the cheeks by an angel

However, many moons ago

When I was a young beau

I had pimples in my dimples

Now I am old and single

My dimples look like moon craters

Full of freckles and wrinkles

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.
