    Joe Hughes is a poet who writes with a sense of humor that is infectious, i am just one of many who enjoy reading his whimsical poetry he reminds me in his style of writing of James Stephens, Joe is just one of those people who does not take himself too seriously and there ought to be more like him, good on you Joe keep them coming.

    Thank you for the kind comments on my poems. I like the Bubble. I tend to be a positive poet who emphasizes the positive mood. I began writing poetry by experimenting with everything. You have good riming. It is interesting that you and I took opposite objectives. In Fog, I was placing the emphasis on the negative acpects and ended with the positive, and you placed your emphasis on the positive and ended with the negative. I am sorry to hear about the demise of your bubble!

    I can't believe there is no comments here about you, you're in my favorite poem list! ! !
    Joe's poems are witty, very sarcastic at times and I love his simple but brilliant way of writing. He's really talented!

Best Poem of Joe Hughes

A Bubble

I am a fresh blown bubble,
Just born with lots of care.
I'm undecided if I'll burst
Or fly into the air.

I'm yellow, blue, some red and green
Six inches is my size.
I hover round the patio
But the sky is still my prize.

I've almost hit a garden chair,
I've just skimmed past a fence.
I've cleared some hedges and a shed,
I wobble as I dance.

And now I'm soaring, Oh! so high,
I never will come down.
I've cleared the eaves of houses
And I'm heading into town!

Goodbye young child way down below,
The world now lies in ...

Read the full of A Bubble


From the moment of my coming,
to the moment that I die,
I've been registered and tabulated
to make sure I'm not a lie.

I've been fingerprinted, indexed,
photographed and even drawn.
I've been phoned and faxed and texted
from each dusk to early dawn.
