    Colin,
    I just visited your yotube page and...am beyond impressed. Your works on the Great War and WW II transcend literature, and should be read by every student of history and the humanities. I'll be a regular reader of your work. Outstanding.

    Hello Colin, I've read some of your poems and may I say you're an excellent writer. Since my stroke I'm no writing much however, I do enjoy reading the best of PH, including yours. Cheers, Jerry

    i read your poem ''bloodsports'' - just like in politics we jusitfy are own selfish greed. i could not have said it better.

    A most Realistic and graphic poet who ducks no issues. Topical and modern, from street wars to 'The Somme'. Depth and detail. Anger, sadness and joy. Consistently an excellent read. Paul.

BONES AT DYING

Bones at dying shall not quake
Nor decay with the feasting of the worms
For the spirit of this God loving soul
Shall never harbour in the ground.

I have burst free with that force
Which drove each flower up into the light
And soul tossed by furies of purple storms
I shall shelter where the mind creates its visions.

[Hata Bildir]
