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!



It does not matter what your political views are

what has happened in your past

Your heart is crying out now

For the healing in the world


Hear her cries universe

take her into your arms

help her find the magical keys

to keep her safe from harm


Break this stigma of  mental health

You are so brave for speaking out

Those trolls are just "SCUM" so ignore them

They are blot on the page of social media


Be just how you need to be

but hear the music in the air

Music that has touched me

I will be waiting here
