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!





​Parts reassemble 

As I grow through the year

pulling back all that was missing

pulling back what I threw away


I swear I heard an angel

one morning she whispered goodbye in my ear

As the coolest breeze kept me peaceful

She whispered goodbye


I have begged her to return

I didn't mean to send you away that night

Darkness was holding my heart and mind

I know now how much I need you

Believe in you


Then the psychic woman told me

"You have so many watching over you"

Well sometimes I feel so alone

Empty without anything to believe 


I have run with anxiety and sat with fear

I let them have my power for so long

I took it back when I spoke to myself

"Just enjoy life, YOU ARE ALLOWED JOY!"


I know now how much the universe is moving in me

The importance of expression and creativity

To know how much beauty is still in a world

Now filled with the darkness of mankind's hearts


I don't fully understand this journey yet

That is part of the joy!

To meet the unexpected like a song given in sadness

Music to help us to heal


Just go with the flow boy

The flow of the water and sea

They spoke to you and healed you

A smile, not one but three!


so much has happened in the space of a year

You stayed true to the path you felt you needed to follow

SO now you are starting to find your wings

Fly to the angel of awakening
