Hazel Durham Poems

Black And White

White dazzles my inner divide,
Black thrown in with my unruly side,
My parents wave me a lingering goodbye,
They have always nurtured my childlike soul,

The Beauty Of The Truth

A smooth, round pebble thrown with joy into a Killarney lake,
Creates movement of dancing ripples that reflects the light of the day,
Like the film of their lives, beginning with the first take,
My mother's moist, brown eyes scattered with flecks of green,

The Essence Is You

Lover of life, every man dreamt of you being his wife,
Long blond hair shimmering in the sunlight,
A golden face, forever smiling,
You held the reins of your destiny,

Coming Home

Punchestown races a glorious extravaganza,
You had a flutter on Fuchsia Belle,
Tall white haired man, softest baby blue eyes,
Everything new and wondrous to you,

The Laughing Stars

He lives deep inside himself with burnt out emotions,
He can stll hear his piercing scream's,
When he had a bad fall from a horse in a race,
That ended all his dream's,

Hazel Durham is a poetess of great sensibility and refinement. Her poetry emanates an unique emotional aesthetics; the most tender, fragile, and delicate human-emotions, are beautifully incorporated within her verses. And I do believe that many readers can relate to her poems. A poetess, that truly writes with her heart - and that is how should Poetry be written.
