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!









It is 02:02 am I am in bed and thinking

It feels, really feels like I know the truth of what the world denies

I have opened my heart to the universe

I have opened my eyes to our world


I feel like I am finding what so many others seek

I feel the tingle in my hands when it is time to create 

How I have stayed true to my calling, when the world was calling me names

How I have gained the strength , after being held under the foot 


I know now where to turn when I need too

Who I can trust in this game

For I am building up my own universe

Where only the truth can be my stars


I spiral and sometimes face black holes 

I am aware when the danger is near

But nothing can harm me now

so send your meteorites my way


I am a shooting star

I whisper across the skies

Hear my words, if you are open

"I know what the world denies!"
