Hello readers, and yes I am still reminiscing about my Pacific Ocean cruise, here is another poem from April 2018 …


as far as the eye can see

an endless horizon surrounds me

encircling the dark blue ocean

waving to a pastel aqua sky

I turn to port-side

my tangent shadow follows

I walk to forward

my world is full of rippling white caps

I stand on aft

my view is an edge-less rim

a vast rolling sea

as far as the eye can see

above is our universal dome

lingering clouds of chrome

casually floating by

sunshine appears to fly

changing the Pacific’s hue

cobalt to royal blue

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. I am so enjoying your memories through these beautiful poems and photos you’ve been sharing lately! πŸ™‚
    For years, we lived 7 miles from the Pacific Ocean, so we spend a lot of time there. πŸ™‚ The ocean makes me feel small in good ways…makes me so amazed and grateful to be a small part of this huge beautiful world! πŸ™‚

    1. When I was the cruise It felt like I was out floating on the universe … So vast, so open, so blue, for as far as the eye could see … πŸ’™πŸŒŠπŸŒβ›΄
