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!




I'm going to lay down on the ground

until the Earth becomes a part of me

Nature is inside of me

Flowing in my bloodline......


When I am under the ground

I will play with the under world

play with those who understand

You will see me in the spring


I am the branches on the tree

I am the bud that blooms 

I am the bark 

Sit beneath and my petals will fall to you


I blow in the wind and cross the fields

I find another place to land

I grow again, over and over

I wait for you 


If you never hear my words

If they never find your heart

You will feel me in the breeze

feel me on your skin


Listen to the storm

Hear the thunder 

the flashing of lightening 



Every season I will grow

And I will learn

I will twist my branches out

Looking for the essence of you


Sweet perfume in the air

I flow through the sky

Recognise me 

I am never gone


Winter, autumn, spring, summer

I will bring you a different gift

It is waiting for you

You just have to seek me, here! 


Forever and always

Never going to leave the world

I am nature

I am me.....
