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!




I can hear the words that are spoken but the music reaches my ears

I can run when I feel frightened but you always stop my feet

I can wait, I am so used to waiting

I hear the bells as they ring in the distance.


If I search my soul, do we even have a soul?

I can find the things I have been seeking

Pushing me on to the path of SELF

until I know I have changed


I climb through windows and walk through doors

I notice, although it seems slow

That change comes to take my hand

Always moving me on, never letting me down


Just saying these things in words

Opens another window

Shows me another door

A new experience waiting 


Like snow falling from the winter sky

I will float down to meet you, slowly

Sometimes feeling like giving up

Will anybody read you?, feel you like I do?
