    Diane Hine

    Diane- Down-Under has been a clerk,
    but, Lord knows, she is sure no jerk.
    She does come up with real cool stuff.
    I never leave her writings in a huff.
    [To please her Readers, she does not shirk.]

    The next five lines (for me) may be tough;
    excuse me please, Readers, if it is rough.
    [If I can get through it, it will PERK …. me up.]

    She writes both of science AND of fluff,
    NOT too much of either, but “just enough”.
    I picture her standing on a windswept bluff,
    her speech softly female, never gruff,
    her words more full of play than of work..

    (i was inspired to write this after reading Diane's Rondeau: Cycle)

    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.

    Diane is the kind of poet I aspire to be :)

  • Doug Bentley Doug Bentley (5/9/2013 11:35:00 PM)

    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....

    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.

    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.

Best Poem of Diane Hine

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 ...

Four Score And Ten

Though long in tooth and slack of jaw
A dear old bird with craw and claw
Your inner beauty owns no flaw
So have good cheer, I sooth implore
Be merry, full of cake in maw
And suck ye cider through a straw
