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!





As the world is falling apart

I am finding my way to me

To who I am

To what I believe


As the acid rain falls down

I am finding my way back to me

As the world turns the wrong way

I know my heart is hearing the universe


So I follow the path as my eyes open

I welcome the change even as my heart cries

As I find nature

We rip the world apart


(Is it too late to save her?)


My heart is full of joy 

My heart is full of tears

I don't know where this takes me

I only know it takes me somewhere


(over the rainbow)


The only sure thing is she is screaming at us

Why can't we see what we have done?

Why do they say there is no climate change?

She screams and fights to be heard


Where are your protectors?

Where are the sound of mind?

Where are they?



As I walk these new paths

My eyes are starting to open

I stay strong and true

I strive to become a protector


Let me send your message

To the ones who will hear

Let me see that they are out there

somewhere, someone cares
