    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

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.

Oh yes, he was discriminating,
