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!



​To many souls just taken away

​time and time and time again

yet we still like loaded guns

(in the wrong hands so deathly)

so make the people run and run


​So many lights taken from us

So many maimed 

Will we ever learn from this

(the rush, the rush, the rush)

  ​Time has come for us to take a stand This can not be allowed to continue 

 who's GOD is GOD? ​When the blood flow freely ​we need to change this venue   We all have chains around our necks ​If we say "It's not our concern" What will you tell the children who ask "Why do grown ups not learn?"   ​We need to find an answer ​To find a way through this hour ​We wont get there with hatred We wont get there with anger   So I give this to the faded lights To the lights that have gone out I give this from my heart This is my shout!   Rest and shine your lights some other place Become stars in the sky ​Your connection, not broken Just one question to ask "WHY?"
