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!




Through the moonlight

A figure standing, hands held out

The sound of water dripping

Through the light I see your pale features


You tell me "You have a gift"

I try to hold onto your words

"Go seek your truth, Find your answers, Friend"

Walking away I know you are leading me to changes


I don't know how to thank you

All I can do is stay true

To my vision, to your gifts

To be unafraid in all my beliefs


I run so often and hide

When I think "This can not be real"

When I don't take your messages

To my very heart, my soul


I try to listen to the muse

To be the one who stands up for the world

For we are truly killing her

As we rip ourselves apart


From space I see you

So fragile

I open my arms to the universe

To the knowledge


So stay with me when I forget

To follow my path of truth

stay with me through the day

So I can sleep calm at night
