Fiery Pearls and an Ambient Eye

“Since I don’t believe in anything 

I can pretend about everything” … (anonymous)

The stars are the universe’s fiery pearls

And when smoke falls into my eyes 

Her fading ashes singe my heart

The silver moon is my world’s ambient eye

And when my mind falls out of focus

His silvery beams enlighten my soul

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. Oh, no! 😦 I’m so very sorry to hear this, Ivor! 😦
        As you all-too-well know, you can take your time…and in your way…to grieve.
        I think communing with the moon connects us all…near, far, and those who have gone before us.
        I know you will hold your friends in your heart.
        We send loving condolences to you.
        (((HUGS))) ❤️
