MILES FROM HOME
written by: Ivor Steven
Today I went left, instead of right No matter what direction Or decision I choose At the end of day There will be night My time to rest And remain out of sight
Tomorrow I shall take the back roads Miles away from my troubled life Miles and miles Beyond those evil eyes of strife
Tonight I will sleep under the stars With my loyal companion By my side
Now He gives me that inquisitive stare “Don’t look at me like that I know mate, I know I should never have left the wife”

Rivers Of Love (a Tanka, with an introduction quote) Written by, Ivor Steven
“How many rivers of tears must I cry. Before all the deepest wells run dry” …Ivor Steven, May 2012
The hail’s coldness stings An old wind pierces my eyes As yesterdays tears Etch raw ravines in my cheeks Her rivers of love run deep

I was born and raised in Geelong, Victoria, Australia (the southern part of the continent, an hour south of Melbourne), and I am still a resident of my home town, having never moved more than 5km away from my parents’ house.
What is the greatest thing about the place you call home?
Geelong is a city beside the bay, and only 30 minutes away from the picturesque Bellarine Peninsula beaches, and the famous South Coast surf beaches. If I was to be reincarnated, I am sure I would come back as a dolphin.
