Throwback Friday, Eleven Shades of Ocean Sunrises, by Ivor Steven

In April 2018, I went on an twelve day Pacific cruise to the New Caledonian Islands, and somehow I managed to photograph the entire eleven ocean sunrises, and below are my photos, with my associated poem that wrote.


Eleven Shades of Ocean Sunrises

the ocean sunrise

my daily prize

evoked my gaze

like a glitzy floor-dance

Mother nature’s

star performer

her razzle and dazzle

upon morning sea drizzle

reflections of colour

her horizon of vigour

purity defined

a royal skyline

endless over time

eleven days she was mine




Ivor Steven (c) April 2018

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
