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!



Early morning silence

So peaceful and calm

As I walk I listen

To nature 

The only sounds awakening


As I walk I try to take in the beauty of a new day

The beauty only the morning can know

before mankind awakens

With noises so loud, like screams


Morning dew on the spiders web

on the leaf from the tree

on the grass

Wishing away the sun that is rising again 


These walks home are MY time

time to think about the world

to think of the beauty

The fear of war that threatens to take her away
