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!









​IF I could find a way to bend time

I would bring you back to me

there is so much I want to tell you

I want to listen to you too


​I'm sure there are stories that are untold

​all of your stories, I still hold

​sometimes I get angry that you left me here

here, to face this world alone


I know this had to happen

​For your journey here was over

and I had to find the strength

strength to stand alone

to heal my mother too


Many years passed and then your wife left us

her journey now, to find her way to you

Now I have to find a way


I stand strong on my journey

following my path

I sometimes feel the ghost of you

but I never see you in my dreams


I'm not sure you would like this world

I don't understand it either

Just know that you are welcome here

to tell me one more story
