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!





Hay Mary you have been on my mind lately

It seems your spirit has found me here

How long have you been seeking

For those men to understand


HEY Mary 

The suppressors want you on the run

They want pieces of your son

While you are under foot


You will rise up

You will take your place

With the love of a mother

They will understand


Know that this male

Feels you in his heart

Understands that love of a mother

Will respect forever


I know that someday

This world will understand

Just what it has done

Even then I know you will shine with love
