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!



Tonight I need those healing plants

to wrap around me and heal me 

Draw near to me

sage bring me to the grounding that I need


Cleanse this house

cleanse this soul

hear this call out from my heart

smoke it out of me


This realisation I have come to 

It has torn my heart

I gave them the opportunity

They chose to tear my heart


That cry out and my tears

That was a prayer you know (the only way i pray)

IT seems to have brought me to what I already knew

Still it rips open this heart of mine

No diamonds left in this mine


where are you?

What do I do now?

I called to you 

You remain so silent in my seeking
