Now, Tomorrow, and How

Happy New Year!! 2023 …

Now, Tomorrow, and How

The afternoon before New Year’s Eve

Before Two Thousand and Twenty Three

I am hanging out at the Box Office Cafe

Soaking up the swarmy summer sun

Lounging in a seductive sea breeze

The final day of the year

Has become almost perfect

And I am listening to the blarney tunes

Of the Irish band “Flogging Molly”

I am smiling, swaying, and dreaming

About now, tomorrow, and how

“My empty hands are full

Of memories and rhymes” *

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.
