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 the fire burnt down

Ashes and embers remain

Burning but not burnt out

Can you recall the flame?


For time is something that can not be owned

yet , your time IS your own

Wisely decided where you fall in the world

Who you choose to bark at!


My spirit is heavy right now

With the weight of what I see

In the world, far off places

What I see so close to me


I do question if I should react

Should I let my feelings be seen

For silence does not bring change

But who will listen to my words?


I do not wish to sound unhappy

For I find happiness in the world

It is the "certain" people who want us to be

Deep in the dark dog's jaws


It is like the world has entered a void

Where no one knows who to believe

We can't trust the Men of power

Even some of those closest to us


So I ask you to seek deep within

To find that spark that is burning

To know who's battle you fight in

To know the roots of your world


I  ask you to all stand together

To be unafraid of what you believe

T0 stand strong in this battle

Where we all should be fighting on.
