Today I am presenting a poem from November 2019, and the Image above is of the Cape Byron Lighthouse, Australia’s farthest Eastern Point …

Climbing Each Stair

Life’s edges are not always square

The world’s big and round out there

We’re surrounded by free air

Enough for everyone to share

Inhale deeply, when climbing each stair

Jump across, yesterday’s broken earthenware

There will always be another thoroughfare

Wandering up, to grandma’s rocking chair

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. Thank you Kindly Carolyn … an ode to our journey, our continue climb to reach our goal …
      Here is a poem that I have not published yet .. one I will … ((Hugs)) 💙🌏💕
      “I Tried
        
      After times of sorrow 
      Hope lives on,
      in tomorrow 
      So sings,
      my little sparrow

      All my mountains
      have been climbed 
      All my climbs
      had their falls and failures 
      Then ultimately
      I tried to reach my goal

      “Except that the goal
      Falls short of the reach” … Leonard Cohen, from his song ‘The Goal’
