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 would walk in your garden and sit under your tree

I would look upon those forbidden fruits

My mind would wonder what secrets they hold

As I speak to you all my concerns


I guess you will know what I am going to say

But I will say my piece anyway

I will raise up my voice so I know that you hear

How my heart feels in the world you created


You would tell me that each fruit holds a secret

A secret the world must never know

You would there alone to test me

Would I eat of the forbidden fruit


Where are the other people? 

I look around as  your vision fades

I see that fruit so ripe

I wait until it falls to the ground below


I now know your secret!
