Throwback Friday, Wondering And Wandering Again, by Ivor Steven

Funny enough my poem today is not about life in ‘covid’ times, as I wrote this piece in June 2018, but on reading this poem today, the theme could well pertain to our ‘covid’ lockdown situation here at the moment in Geelong … hmmm eerie …

Wondering And Wandering Again


Do you every have that vacant feeling

Silently in a void, wandering

Darkness has fallen

Clouds shroud the moon

Misty rain cools the night-air

Wondering what happened to your daytime

Hours of down-time

What have you done?

Memories of your day have gone

Nothing in your hand

Blankness in your mind

Decoding untold stories

Writing on empty blue lines

Words of hidden rhymes

With invisible ink that runs away

Eloping with your pen

To find a better day

And leaving you alone again





Ivor Steven (c) June 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
