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

Sabbath Rain

Let us bury two birds together;
Two fragile little sacks of skin
holding that which
could have been life.
Cold, wet, blue around the eyes,
little beaks never to peck,
featherless wings.
You dig as I hold
what could have been garbage
