Throwback Friday, A Crack in the Wall, by Ivor Steven


I originally wrote this piece in 2012, and then posted it here on my WordPress site in June 2017, and in December 2017, I was fortunate enough to have this poem published by the ‘Vita Brevis Magazine’, and I thoroughly recommend to all my readers and followers, to visit and support this superb Poetry Magazine,  >> https://vitabrevisliterature.com/vita-brevis-poetry/


A Crack in the Wall

Placing yesteryear’s photos

In that bygone album

Cutting window holes

In today’s front door

Pasting forgotten memories

In the Bible, so forlorn

Packing tomorrow’s cases

Full of dusty dreams

Clutching torn curtains

Darkened to the outside worlds

Passing a crumbling brick wall

Weakened by the original fall



Ivor Steven (c) Sept 2020

G’day, and welcome to my blog site. My name is Ivor Steven, I live in Geelong, Australia. I’m an ex-industrial chemist, and a retired plumber, and a former Carer of my wife(Carole), for 30 years, who suffered from severe MS. I Write poetry about those personal thoughts, throughout and beyond my life as a Carer. I’ve been blogging for over 2 years, and writing poems for 19 years. Of course a lot of my poems are about my favourite subject Carole, but since I’ve been blogging my writings have become quite varied, humourous, mystical, observational, and even a few monster/horror poems. View all posts by ivor20
