Towards the Dark (my Nightmare)

A nightmarish hypothetical poem and some of the words are from comments I made on Bart’s and Sadje’s recent posts .. >

Towards the Dark (my Nightmare)

One day soon 

After mining the earth dry 

There will no more rubies 

No more diamonds in the sky

Will our silver spoons

Ever stop digging

Towards the dark side of our moon


Tonight, we do not need

Our world to be darker

We can learn to survive 

When life teaches us 

The value of being alive

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.
