At the start of the year the universe was calling me to write a new set of poems. I let the ideas that I had sit with me for a while and then I set about writing out what would be the storyline into what the poems would fit. It seemed the work would involve written set pieces and poetry. I was all set to go and then...... THE WORLD SEEMED TO GO CRAZY! It became clear to me that I was not being called to write out MY idea but that I needed to report on what was happening in the world and how it was making me feel.

the BLACK dog is a term used to describe depression and it a dark dog. As I started this work we are in a very dark, depressing time in the world and I had to reflect on that. So this is me, the Dark dog, barking back at the world! This is very much a live piece of work as we turn through this year. I also have my reflections in here, on my own thoughts, feelings and life. This is my heart open and my soul on show for anyone to see. It is me being brave, I hope you enjoy!




As I look at your eyes and when I see your hands

I see time on the map of your body

I know that we are all getting older

But I can not face the day I let you go


I feel I have a connection to you that is so strong

You the one who birthed me, mothered me for so long

(your say the jobs not done!)

I'll always be your baby


I often wonder how my life will be when i'm truly standing alone

Walking through the rest of my life with your spirit at my side

I know you will never leave me

and if I have to let you go it doesn't mean you are gone


Time seems so unfair as we walk the vein of life

We twist and turn we love and we hate

I hear the words of Evita in my mind

"What i'd give for a hundred year" with you 

Who knows what time we have
