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!




Shut your eyes

Go to the inner world

Nothing here seems right anymore

War after war after war


Go inside your inner heart

It is starving for starvations sake

Go to the very soul

Colour and starlight collide

Where can you turn now?

Family, friends and lovers let you down

A secret place, sacred place, holy to you

No one can take it from your

Your creation of dreams

Your universe inside

From stars we are born

Shadows will always try to take you

They can't have you being free

For that would give you power 


In the arm not visible you are held

In the arms of comfort you reside

By the time they realise

You will rise with fire

Hold tight

Whatever is coming

Can never detonate your strength

Power in your hands is responsible
