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!




You want me to change who I am

To conform to your views of the world

To tell me that my thoughts and feelings

Are not valid, not in your universal truth!


You think you have control

you think you can tell me that I am wrong

You are the only one wrong here

For I am a soul who is finding its path


I fly and I crash

I love whom I wish

I am a deep thinker

Who walks with words


I rush when I need to

I stop when It is time to rest

I take when it is needed

yet, I always,  ALWAYS give back


crash and fly

rip and burn

twist and turn

It is my life, to learn


All of the things that I know

I take and I use to help others

I never look at the pain as Bad

My teachers, my thought givers

My muse
