    Jerry Hughes is an exceptional poet with a clarity of vision and an absense of bullshit. He pens rage and tenderness with equal finesse. His poems range from the lyrical, to the almost but not quite sentimental, to the raw and violent to the silliest Milliganesque. All these styles seem to flow from his pen with equal ease. Read Jerry's work - be enchanted and never bored. love, Allie xxxxxxxxxx

Best Poem of jerry hughes

A Leaf

'I think that I shall never see a poem lovely as a tree'

A single leaf makes its own history.
Attached to the bough from which it
sprung it is a perfect entity.

As part of the whole a resting-place for birds,
and a refuge for life-forms that we cannot see.
It welcomes the seasons, and greets each day
with an open face.

Throughout it's life it made no enemy, yet,
men come with chainsaws to fell the parent tree.

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.
