Diane H Poems

A Mass of Aries rams describes a Curl
Potentially connected to a Field
Some Fractal of Mechanics may unfurl
A Calculus of fuzzy-logic yield.
...

The narrow path towards Mt Toolbrunup
inclines through fragrant green enclosing wood.
He forged ahead, I kept up best I could.
A tumbled boulder slope leads ever up.
...

The couple ordered flat whites in the café.
“I bet there’ll be spillage in the saucer”,
she said, watching waiters dash past the table.
“Well, there was a time, ” he said, “when pouring
...

Parrot in the cyclone eye
spread his sodden wings to dry.
Wall of wind approaching sly
snapped him up and flung him high.
...

I wanted a car when I wearied of walking.
With savings in hand, I left home to peruse.
The dealer was helpful, bright-eyed and fast-talking.
He offered two models from which I could choose.
...

A duel, only mist will intervene,
Two men, a line of numbers span between,
The field in which they stand, a complex plane;
Which algebraic equations set this scene?
...

7.

The diner nibbles biscuit
because a stealthy misfit
has finished off the brisket and the pie.

His methods are erratic
...

A grey cat with vivid green eyes
hid in long grass beside a letterbox.
Two birds hopped and skipped along the path.
The cat’s attention was fixed.
...

If...............The only certainty
one has..........is
faith............that something exists;
then.............it follows that
...

If freshly cloned, with memories intact
Unable hence to occupy one ground
Our senses would not duplicate exact
the information beaming from around.
...

In Drake Passage, the gleeful sea saith…
‘Yo sailors! You’ll not pass me by stealth.
Vessels cut my muscle but not my strength.
Your sailing ship’s too fat with plundered wealth.
...

12.

A deviation split our primate past
and catalysed the rise of modern man.
Inquirers scan a triple epoch span
to piece together how it came to pass:

13.

Dissect a passing notion into parts,
look deep within the workings of the mind,
observe the neuron map an idea charts
and study each synaptic cleft confined.
...

When Hadean Earth was magma sea, an impact cleaved the Moon,
And eons since and eons hence, they dance in close commune.
The Earth has flourished under axis stabilizing boon,
The Moon's white face records a cannonade in craters strewn.
...

The human was immortal; problem solved.
He siphoned power from a black hole rim.
Gazillions of years lay ahead of him.
He’d need them as the Universe devolved.
...

The goldfish died. Eric bought an eel
which mulls by day or haunts the galleon-wreck
and slips by night in scaleless dishabille
to trace lemniscates over a gravel bed.
...

Caesar thought he was out of reach
'midst weeds and grass, he ate a peach.
Pompeia, his wife, found him at last
Palms held up, she delivered a blast.
...

Laced within entropic flow
arbitrary eddies swirl,
Fleeting fluctuating twirls
dissipating apropos.
...

19.

My toddler grandson squats beside a parked
car to examine the wheels and undercarriage.
I know more about cars than he does
(temporarily) , so I tell him what an axle is.

The Best Poem Of Diane H

Mathematical Star Signs

A Mass of Aries rams describes a Curl
Potentially connected to a Field
Some Fractal of Mechanics may unfurl
A Calculus of fuzzy-logic yield.

Quadratic Taurus bulls do not Equate
So don't get Knotted arguing the toss
Although with cows they'll gladly permutate
Inverting them with Product makes them Cross.

Most Geminis are tied in Causal Loop
Because their brains are Hypobolic Plot
So if you Add their salad to their soup
It anti-matters them and matters not.

Cancerians love Cartographic law
Their kind presents a Strange Attractor risk
But should their Bifurcations start to bore
They make delicious Metamathic bisque.

The Cumulative Frequency of Leos
Thrice multiplies their skill at Quantum Jump
But if they start to overRule your Peanos
Just poke them with a Compass in the rump.

Harmonic Virgos may be tempt to play
By flattery Tangented to their ear
'I love the Curve Elliptic of your sway
Thou art the Cuboid destined for my Sphere'.

X Librans makes a Quantity of prate
Now double it for Power Y to Zen
Subtracting Z produces vacillate
Divide by thumps to clear and start again.

Shy Scorpios in Logarithms hide
With Relativity which they embrace
They fly by taking Parabolic ride
With aliens from Fibonacci Space.

As Sagittarians Abstractly run
On no Account engage in Matrix dance
Whilst they may find it Exponential fun
You'll forfeit toes to their Kinetic prance.

To Orbifold a Capricorns Converse
Distract by 'citing enth- most place of Pi
But if the Complex Plane remains adverse
Contuse with Games of Cryptograph eye-spy.

Aquarians are Fluidly Inclined
To saying stupid things like 'catch a Wave'
Illogic'lly Entangled in the mind
Their Hemispheric Orbits won't behave.

The Roots of Pisceans obliquely Lie
Within an Escher Tesselated bowl
They're blessed with Countless Postulated fry
And Scaled with Quasicrystal fungal sole.

Note: Augustine(354-430 CE) wrote, 'The good christian should avoid mathematicians and all those who make empty prophecies. the danger already exists that mathematicians have made a covenant with the Devil to darken the spirit and to confine man in the bonds of Hell'

-but he was really talking about astrologers-

There is an intricateness and scope to Diane's poems that defies my ability to express. Diane can write the mundane insane and the inane sane. It is evident in her poems that much research goes into her work. Diane will also attempt challenging and complex topics that most poets would not dare. Her poems tease higher mathematics and nuclear physics that are understandable, outrageous and entertaining. She can also bring you right back down to earth with laborious logic that challenges static reasoning and staid beliefs. She writes about microcosm and macrocosm and the tiniest life forms which sustain us all. Perhaps what most attracts me to her poems is that she is a woman of strenght and integrity and I have been greatly inspired and blessed by her work!

Diane's poetry is par excellence in its construction and adherence to poetic form. She is a genius.

I can't believe no comments about our Diane. She is oozing with talent, and every day brings some new masterpiece. She is one of the best poets I have ever found at Poemhunter- but beyond that, one of the best I've ever read anywhere, on paper or on glowing screens. She should be required reading in every school so that poetry would be something for young people to enjoy, rather than shudder at (cutting their teeth on Shakespeare, as they are historically made to do! Better to start them off on something soft, and gradually approach the great master, only when ready!) . But it is no easy thing to write thoughful and intelligently available poetry- but you can find it here, under Diane's name, any day of the week, and that's really something. Something amazing. Buy this book now- er- I mean, read some poems, for free, that you will not regret spending the time spent reading them. I also like the dashes of science scattered in, because like Diane, I think science and poetry mix beautifully! Now- on to the poems, hie make haste, the bridegroom he is come already: Make haste, I say..

Great to see you heading back to number 1, your talent is remarkable and I am unsure how ratings work. I wish you well.

Ms Diane, I find you as a poet with significant potential to change the mindset of many of our poets who tread the path of self found orbits devoid of realistic dimensions. Your poems have an authentic splendour built upon the foundation of common sense that alludes man these days. Most remarkable is the way you blend poetic talent with the musings of ever awake human being. Above you remain in thoughts and true form. May the next phase shower on you the greater thought particles so that you will sing more clearly and more audibly to us and the brass alike.

Diane Hine writes amazing poems from nature and science and explores and enlivens the everyday by combining beautifully descriptive and precise language, creativity and fact, often utilizing well known and sometimes difficult poetic forms. Her vocabulary unfolds like an enticing and gluttonously alluring feast with delectable morsels that spread further interest with a stylishly crafted and gently didactic banquet served with unique and original courses of fact and fun, playfully and skillfully presented by a master sculptor, sage storyteller, ace poet and proffer of truth.

A wild-eyed poet, philosopher-scientist whose words spin, weave and transmute. Her alchemy can touch any particle, micro to macro and back again, that exists, and, like magic, create gold. An unquenchable Curiosity on a never-ending voyage of Other discovery. An unique voice in global English poetry....
