Throwback Friday, Below An Alien Sky, by Ivor Steven

Over at Go Dog Go Cafe’s, Throwback Friday segment, I posted my revised poem, “Below An Alien Sky”

Go Dog Go Café

Originally this poem was called “Below A Loyal Sky”, but today I have slightly revised, the July 2018 piece, for today’s article.

Below An Alien Sky (Revised)

I hide behind a mask

You’ll hear me ask

At the veil sales

Lurking in the back pews

Sneaking a view

Through a curtain of bamboo

Below the indigo-blue sky

I am just a loyal alien spy

Protecting my Prussian blue eyes

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. This is so great, Ivor!
    And another of your ponderful poems that should produce concern and action from those of us who read. A powerful pairing with Dennis’ song. “Feeling like an alien…like a stranger lately”…in our world/society is something I’ve always felt, but even more so the past 7 years or so.
