Words to You

I wrote to you

You wrote to me

Your words turned to scrawl

Eyes began to call

A crack crept down the wall

You stood on the rubble so tall

We let the dust settle

Heated up the Kettle

Had a cuppa and a silent chat

Light flows back, through the crack

Words were our pearls

Writing is my world

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.
