The One Sky

I have memorized pain

I feel caressed by the rain

Soothing my daily pain

Let it rain

I am over being a champion

Floating on a cloudy high

I breathe in and sigh

Be at peace I decry

Stop doubting how and why

We are one world

Under the one sky

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. Heart-touching, but brilliant poem, Ivor!
    As we grow more well-seasoned, there seems to be more rain and more pain. Or maybe our years of life have made us more aware, more sensitive, more compassionate in important ways. πŸ™‚
    And we can still be a good role model to others of “one world under one sky”…let’s take care of our world and each other. πŸ™‚
    Love the Ben Som vid and music!

  2. Petty selfishness and greed are at the root of the world’s problems, I think. Seeing the earth from space should put things into perspective. We need a global perspective…we need to work together!

    Getting older and less able to do some things, we can still speak the truth. Thank you for always doing that, Ivor.
    This is another beautiful poem, and another gentle message to guide us. ❀ ❀ ❀
