    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

    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.

Best Poem of Colin Ian Jeffery

Billy

He never speaks
Trapped within a damaged brain
Body twisted, limbs trembling
Sitting in a hospital yard
Humming tunes without melody.
But in his bright soul he stands tall
Articulate with mind intact
Singing melodious songs of love
Only God and he can hear.

Read the full of Billy

Space

Once upon a time
There was nothing but inky black space
An infinite emptiness of darkness
Until the Great Bang exploded
Creating galaxies and universes
Stars in the billions, bright suns and planets.

Who created this limitless black space
Was it the hand of almighty God?

[Hata Bildir]
