Rumblings (a Senryu)

Rumbles from above

My soul hears the mountains call

The heart slows and falls

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.

    She will always share your mind, heart, and soul, Ivor! She will always watch over you!


    1. I told Ingrid, I am flushing with memories recently … I don’t expect these emotions to stop for a while … the 10th anniversary of Carole’s passing is on May 3rd .. the feelings have unexpectedly started 2 months earlier than normal … and they do not seem to abating … πŸ€—πŸ˜‰πŸ’•
