Is There More?

Is There More?

Beyond my front door

Will there be more?

When the lights go out

I quietly sit and stare

To see what is out there

Is there more?

Than starlit stairs

And when will I?

Begin the climb

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. Oh .. I forgot to write that the painting was one of Carole’s .. I’ll edit my post soon … and the song by Archie Roach and Paul Kelly seemed very appropriate for my “pondering” poem

  1. Your poem seems so wistful… I can hear the yearning, but agree with the others – not yet for your dear friend! Carole’s art is beautiful! I didn’t know she was a painter. You two make a lovely pair!
