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!



My God

​My heart is breaking

cracking open daily

​waterfall of red showers out

​If it covers the world will they feel the hurt?


​My God 

My hope is slipping

That we can ever see the way out of this

​A crying world

​She hears the wars forming


My Father

​My mother

​My sister and

My brother


​We all need to pull close 

​To the ones we love

to the ones who know us 

​Let her heal us, let US heal her


Oh my World family

The readers of my words

I reach out a hand to you all

No matter how you walk this world


Take these words

Hear these words

Repeat these words

Sing these words

​Anyway to reach the hearts of others
