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!




Sometimes it floats down to me and I try to break free

I don't understand the mind of this game

A game that pulls me underneath the blue

I know who you are, I know you!


I just laugh when you walk through my door

I laugh and I take your hand

I tell you that everything will be OK

funny that, comforting the enemy


So lets grab a coffee and talk awhile

Let us speak in the wind or the rain

We can sit together in the sunshine

Talk about why we can't always  be here


On the days when you shout at me loudly

I simply step back and say "Wait!"

Until the time I can breathe again

I walk, I smile and I wait for a knock at the door
