Spring’s Renewal

Hi dear readers, I’ve found another poem that is in my files, but does not appear on my Website … now I am wondering what happened to my website entries between the 16th and 19th of October last year … it’s a mystery to me??

Spring’s Renewal

Spring has sprung again

With a burst of sunshine

Between old storm clouds and new rain

While life’s decor is being redesigned

Winter’s open wounds

Are washed clean

Last year’s fragile blooms

Are due back on the scene

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.

  2. Having such ‘easy’ connection with people around the world it is fascinating to me to be preparing for autumn while you are preparing for spring. The ‘real time’ conversations make it more ‘real’. Happy on-coming spring Ivor!
