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 do not believe God hung the moon

The stars and the sky

He didn't make the rivers flow

​Just the tears fall from my eyes


​I tried so hard to find his face

I only find stars and space

I only felt the Earth

Show me my sacred place


My heart was afraid to be on my sleeve

I couldn't stay, but how could I leave?

​It is so strange how you work it out

​Jesus no longer anything to shout about


​Now I see the moon, stars and sky

I feel nature and I smile

​The force that lets me speak

Lifts me up, Helps me reach


Those trees talk to me in the wind

The sun may burn but it is making us learn

​The water will clean me

More than you ever could


So let the churches pray

Let the fear build

​Speak as much as you like

​I kiss the darkness 

​You can't see as light
