Throwback Friday, A Writers Aviary (Revised), by Ivor Steven

Today’s poem is one I origanally wrote in the Autumn of 2018, and here I have made a few word changes, but without altering the calm aura of the moment…



A Writers Aviary (Revised)


A cool autumn morn

Another new dawn

I am refreshed, I am alive

I roll myself over

Onto my tummy

Elbows on my pillow

The curtains are open

Gazing out the window

Through the leaves and red flowers

Of my red Bougainvillea


My courtyard’s looking homely

A bower scenery

My beautiful fernery

Full of nature’s greenery

I am feeling cosy and dreamy

Comfy in my writer’s aviary








Ivor Steven (c) April 2021

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
