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!




A shade from the former us seems to linger now

waiting in the dust is all that remains and I never knew

How after so many years it came to this

You so far from the light that I held so bright


Taking away the blinkers i guess that a part of me knew

Yet somehow I feel betrayed, feel shocked

I feel like their is no trust in that place

It is just somewhere I have to go


Can the light adjust to focus on the day?

Sometimes I take pictures with my mind

They last for years

Never fading with time (I sometimes wish they would)


It has always been this way

Never knowing who to trust

Only turning to the place the place of creation

It never lets me down...NEVER lets go of my hand


One day, maybe I will find the one who I can trust

Who I can sit through the night and talk with

without fear that they will betray

That their is laughter behind those eyes


IT is only nature that understands

this rhythm in my heart

I walk  with the wind and see all the world

I fly above because I am free


Someday's I know that I was born to the wrong time

to the wrong place 

Yet I embrace the world and try

Try to live with reality


Even the sun with its mighty power

Can fill me with light and love

I see the colours in the trees

hear the voices in the wind
