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!



There they go again

upstairs and downstairs

music and hoover

no communication


Where is the pitch

where is the match?

that lit that love so long ago

Where are those flames?


One swimming in the ocean

One on solid ground

One is searching

One does not understand


So throw the ball

like you throw those words

Throw the ball

In silence without a word


Take him out to the sea

Let him walk on the land

A barrier between them

Only they can see


So where does it take them?

Over sea

Across the land

one longing for a hand (to hold)
