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!



Almost every day I look up to the sky

I hope that I see you

maybe you don't appear

because i already believe


I stand in the kitchen with tears in my eyes

I prepare food and realise

I have lost so much of myself

Lost so much to the world


You are here, yet so far away

I sometimes want to be travelling through stars

instead of drifting through Earth

Drifting through my life


As I bring forth my creations

I find something so special

You bring to me the feeling of truly being alive

How can I ever repay that?


Sun dances in through my bedroom window

It warms me as I sleep

The night time is morning

The daytime the place of dreams


It is your eyes that tell me I love you

My heart that knows it is true

My mind is sometimes the trickster 

Pulling me far from you


So as I prepare for my day sleep

I look out of my window into the sky

I wonder if I will ever see you

As you are passing by ...
