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!




The sky turned grey, that day

the rain fell heavy

bright flash of brilliant blue

clouds holding the tears of nations


We are alone in this world

without leaders

without teachers

compassion leaves us


out in the cold

dirty faces

tears streaming down

we taste dust now


No one wanted to search

deep within the soul

to find an answer

to find a way to push the clouds away

Nation against nation

soul against soul

none realising they are the same

bleeding red


we will sink to the bottom

the pool filled with blood

the blood of us all

let it wash over you



So turn to the inner world

seek justice and truth

search with open eyes

search with love
