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!




The past is the place

that feels safe right now

As I look around the world

All I see are people

Hooked on self interest


So divided, pulled apart

The self is the most important

We fall through the gaps

We created them ourselves


It's hard for me to move through

A world so filled with hatred

Brains connected

friendships lived through messages

why spend time together

When we could talk apart


Do we run with the dogs?

Are we the ones running?

Do you remember a time

before we lost our way
