Biography of Jeff Hobbs

I teach, am married with three children and have a number of other 'projects' which keep me busy with life. Lived some time in the USA but most time in Melbourne, Australia. I am also a volunteer firefighter.

A great deal of the poems I have put on line have come from those moments in life when events have led to a poetic response - usually based on some turmoil in the journey of love which life brings most of us. There is a large group of poems from the early 80s (my late teens and early 20s) and another group from the early 90s as well as a few more recent bits and pieces.

'Introduction to the Gospels 2nd Ed' with Robert Crotty Updates

On The Day

The sight of a mother's smirk
a dream beyond dreaming
leaving, lying
baring the intrinsic wound
of hope.
Human pain sighs desperately
beyond the joy of nights before
crying to the nothingness
for a reason for faith.
