Open Your Olive Eyes, (a Senryu)

Shine your light on me

Open your bright eyes for me

Illuminate me

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. Yes Indeed ..

        Where Is Love?

        Behind every word
        There is a thought
        Between every thought
        There is an emotion
        Underneath the emotion
        There is a heartbeat
        Below the heartbeat
        There is a soul
        Within the soul
        There lives love
