New Zealand is my native country. I was born in Christchurch, in the South Island and now I reside in the heart of Northland. I am happily married and live with my darling husband in a serene valley with our mountain, her trees, her streams, and green fields.

My career, nursing has greatly influenced my pen, sharing her rich ink with my past. I often write dark poetry. However, my muse tends to write itself many times slipping in the shoes and reflecting from the eyes of other people’s lives and their experiences. Therefore much of my poetry is not an accurate account or true depiction of my life. more »

    Simone Inez Harriman is a poet of great depth! Her poems have many layers of meaning that with one single reading, the meaning cannot be fully exhausted. Some of her poems demand many readings and each time we peruse them, we get a new insight! She is not a prolific writer, but it is not the number but the quality of her poems that makes her an outstanding writer! Above everything, she is a lovely soul with a humane attitude and a universal outlook on life! I wish her all the Best in life as a person and as a poet!

    Dear Simone,
    I have just read your poem about your kitten. I am beyond words to tell you how much I enjoyed this beautiful work.
    There are some passages that brought me to tears. Through those words I was lifted to a new ream of beauty.
    Bri sent me your poem and I am much obliged.

    SImone is a thoughtful and insightful poet. I've enjoyed reading her poetry. It always gives me pause. There's much to think about as far as the content of the writing and the writing itself. ...and I always appreciate her supportive and well-considered commentary. Lots of WOW moments here. :)

    Your friendship is like Kipling's The Thousandth Man
    When I am down and out, on you I depend.
    Friends like you will stay around tho' weather's foul
    Like Kipling's Thousandth Man, a true friend I found

    From a grateful heart came these few simple lines
    Your kind comments been keeping my site alive
    When the rain's gone and the sun again shines bright
    Your lovely poems I will read through the night

    Many thanks,
    Loke Kok Yee

Best Poem of Simone Inez Harriman

Crown Of Thorns

For one salubrious season
Bush tempered
And human nurtured
I rose red
Unearthed and shaken
By my unfolding

I recover restless
Budding and blooming
From that hooded promise
I laundered my spirit
High and haughty
Above all the thorns

But wait

A reapers gloved hands
Are hacking
A personal fable
Is fading
A Perspex dream
Is shattering
As secateurs blades
Yawn gleaming
Surgically cutting candy

A coronet of crimson
Crowned with thorns
On shrouded laden tables
Less arrogant
Less ...
