  • Kimberly Fine (11/8/2009 5:46:00 PM)

    I just wanted to tell you that - 'a few words of a kind' was so beautiful and gives me hope..

  • Eddie Roa (1/25/2009 2:00:00 AM)

    Jerry, I received my first uncomplementing comment on my poemstoday and it was from you. It serves me right to have been a bit shoddy with my writing and to be too quick to have it published here in Poemhunter. I may not agree with all that you said but I do admire the candidness by which you have assessed my poem. I've been spoiled by the usual polite comments which really lead me to a fool's paradise. I learned from your frankness.
    Thanks and with much admiration I remain,

    Eddie Roa

    I don't think I have the right to judge people who have been in the world longer than I have, but I do hope my opinion matters to them, personally. Compared to most, I'm a tiny fraction of their age, and not very wise in terms of experience, but this is one thing all readers know-Jerry Hughes writes from his heart and always has the right words for what he wants to say. I've had one mentor in my short life so far, but from hereon, I have two...

    A reader always,

    No my darling, I'm not the bravest man you've met, cos any bravery I have comes from your devotion to me. Thank you...

  • Alison Cassidy (6/19/2008 8:14:00 AM)

    Jerry Hughes is the bravest man I've met. I know, because I've been sitting by his bedside for what seems like forever watching him. I've witnessed his terror on the morning of surgery, his slowly dawning realization that half of him was missing, his agonizing, perplexing and always frustrating journey through the glitches of post ICU and his abiding determination that he's going to 'come back' from it all. I am privileged to be able to keep his bed warm while he's in rehab and I look forward for however long it takes to having him home with his family at Craig Avenue.

    Darling jerry. I have never loved you more. Your Allie Pie ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ And a big kiss too from Ella, Rommy and Sadie.

  • Onelia Avelar (6/6/2008 4:11:00 AM)

    ...and Vise Verse: readers also do care for Jerry Hughes...

  • ~A Little Blue Bird~ ~A Little Blue Bird~ (4/27/2008 8:30:00 PM)

    Jerry Hughes really does care.

  • Ashley S (2/9/2008 2:59:00 PM)

    Ah, Jerry. A hugely honest poet with such great charisma and character about his work. I so prefer a poet of his caliber to those that write bullshit hallmark pretty portrait poems. You'll get none of that here. Honest, well thought out poetry is what you'll get. He delves into many subjects and can back up each one of them. Please, write more! ! Much love, Ashley xoxoxoxo

Best Poem of jerry hughes

Hone Tuwhare's: Rain

Rain

I can hear you
making small holes
in the silence
rain

If I were deaf
the pores of my skin
would open to you
and shut

And I
should know you
by the lick of you
if I were blind

the something
special smell of you
when the sun cakes
the ground

the steady
drum-roll sound
you make
when the wind drops

But if I
should not hear
smell or feel or see
you

you would still
define me
disperse me
wash over me
rain

Brief Encounter

He saw her, and knew he had to meet her,
this elfin girl with bobbed hair
and an oval face.
Eyes as big as saucers, and lips,
sweet jasus, her lips.

What's your name?
Helen, she replied.
Of Troy? he blurted foolishly.
