Under A Vanishing Sky

The dawn is a gray silent sea

And as a cold fog invades me

I see a green paddock

Without a horizon

Vanishing into oblivion

I see a ghostly power-source

Hang without opposition

Vanishing into oblivion

I see a ghastly concrete Czar

Without compassion

Disappearing into oblivion

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.
