Forked Tongues

Lowercase presents: SPEAKING IN TONGUES
At The Medusa Bar
Hello dear readers and followers, if you are in the Geelong area, come along, you are most welcome, and I will be reciting my new poem “Forked Tongues”.

Forked Tongues

War clouds cover the sun

The wind hums through dead leaves

They’re talking in tongues

Beach sand is on the run

The waves sharply rise and cry

They’re talking in tongues

Moon shadows are left undone

Their white light hides under trees

And they’re talking in tongues

The new dawn has begun

Sunrise greets everyone

But we’re talking in tongues

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.
