A Third Eye is Watching 

Happy 75th birthday to my dear departed wife Carole, and I am also celebrating the 10th anniversary of her passing from this world.

A Third Eye is Watching 

When your emotions begin to flow 

Do your senses amplify and grow? 

Bodily aches and mental strains intensify 

Your flooded brain feels like a third eye 

Wondering why? 

You are paddling knee-high 

In yesterday’s goodbyes 

Today my universe 

Hovers above my verse 

And there is no reason to cry 

While her soul resides high and dry

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. what a beautiful tribute to your dear sweet Carol Ivor. I’m sure she will be flying circling love around you today so don’t cry so much that you don’t see the dropped feathers. I hope someone loves me that much someday.
    Love to you and Frankie! 💖💖

    1. Thank you Carolyn .. I tried to keep my poem uncomplicated and lovingly loyal, just like Carole … oh Derrick’s magnificent photos were my prompt for my intriguing use of “third eye”
      I wasn’t sure about the song, but after watching the video a few times, I think it depicted my emotions … after our walkie, I will pick some flowers from my courtyard and me and Frankie will go to the cemetery to see Carole .. these beautiful ‘Purple Mona Lavender’s are blooming ..😊😍💜💜
