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 turn on the T.V. I see politics flowing through the land

I'm not saying that it isn't important but it tires me so much

I know everyone of you will say what I want to hear

So, for now, Come walk away with me to imaginations playground


I take coffee and lunch with a dear, dear friend 

I take the time to break from the world

I sit and I watch my programmes



Sometimes you need to step away from the world

Or it will crush the soul you fight for

It can try to grab your heart with bloody hands

So I walk away to seek my stories


I run to play it is what keeps me alive

I know without creation I am nothing

I have nothing

It keeps me walking in the world 


So for a short while, come walk with me

Let me take you to imaginations playground

Bring whatever you  need

Bring your creativity 


I know what I am pulled to

yet for some reason I resist

I know I will have to stop and turn

before I walk to far


before I walk away

Before I walk to nowhere

before I walk...

Over the edge!
