New Windows

New Windows

The day after

Flying around this old tree

Life is slowly coming back to me

I step away from my “Itmims” sleigh

To embrace the new world

And give celebrations another whirl

With a life full of joy

My journey continues

To dance through

Lockdown’s open windows

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. Hope you had a wonderful Christmas.
    Love the picture of the parrots in the tree, or are they Lorikeets?
    My uncle and aunt used to live on the Queensland NSW border and had loads of them come into their garden daily to be fed.

  2. Another pretty good poem, stylistically and thematically appropriate. Welcome back to nomalcy, but don’t let down your guard yet, the bug is still present. Those pictures… mmm… they’ve lit up my heart, not just my face alone.
