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!



​Tell me are you out there?

Are you coming to save us?

coming to take us away from this

can't you see the tears in our eyes?


Rain falls down 

It carries those tears

They flow to you

What do you do with them?

What will you do?


We don't feel we can raise our voices

We just don't have the strength left

We are worn out

But we are not lost!


We wait for your fire

pouring down 

We need warmth around us

Just someone wrap us in warm eyes


Help us take our next step

help us find the exit

As we fight our way through

As we look for the tiny light in the darkness


All we need is someone

All we need is love

All we need is trust

All we need is us
