White Clouds Over Forest Floor Snail Trails

I remember the days well

When I could hear the ringing of bluebells

And the horizon, was an aqua clear skyline

Splashed with drifting white shrines

The fertile ranges enriched by His grapevines

Hillsides full of nature’s green living enzymes

Now everywhere, there’s gray poles, black cables, and yellow floodlights

Feeding hungry digital mealtimes and TV screens under dull downlights

Oh, to again see moonlit clouds glide by with pristine silver sails

Moving slow enough to observe a forest floor’s snail trails

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
