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!



Listen to me, honey

This is sweet to the toast

nothing can take this sweetness away

So lets just lick that spoon


I will add a little vanilla to the mix

let's make it even sweeter

This cake is waiting to rise

We have all the heat we need


When I reach out I want to see your hand reaching back

No oven gloves  needed

We handle this heat

We turn it up and down


Even at our worse we still see the stars

in our eye pools, swimming

I know what to add to your cake

when it is needed


It is a celebration

A candle burning

In our cake

love soft as sponge
