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!





Walk into the darkness, where I stand in a black room

I wait for you with open arms, stuck in a song of the soul

This aint no fairytail or Disney thing

You can't see out of blacked out windows


When you open this door its like a tomb opening 

Are you ready for my treasures?

Are you awaiting something else?

Sometimes it is the unexpected that get us in the end 


I am dressed in a flowing white robe, almost holy

In this black room with black windows

I smile when you walk through the door

"Hello! I'm afraid I have no chairs"


Don't be afraid it is liberating to face the rooms in our minds

Where the creatures hide and the pictures move

From wall to wall to vision

Outside of our realiety we find answers in the darkest of places


Do not fear

Do not fall

Do not fail

Do not Run


Face what creeps up behind you

If it is a Dark dog day

Listen to the rhythem of the rain

Hear its words 

"AWAKE" you are "AWAKE"
