    Hazel gives her all with her every word. Honesty, life's experiences and pain are expressed so beautifully in each write. My favourite is Butterfly Dance which I have framed. How amazing it is to feel as though you know someone simply through their words and their comments. Cheers Hazel

    About Hazel what should i say softness in feelings expression n her melody when she writes it seems each n every words are coming out directly from her heart. i do remember when she was new for PH i advised her not to bother for likes or comment if her write is not going to heart any one. now i can say with firm faith she has touched a level and has her own identity. one of the prominent poetess who writes on tragedy love affection n very sober. why not i should say the tragedy queen of poetry of this era else this site. may God bless her with a long joyful life with sound health n mind.my regards to her will b always till i m here.

    I just came across Hazel in an email from my friend...he had visited her poems before and liked them. I felt compelled to come, and I fell in love with Hazel's poetry...the first line pulls you in to hold you there and then once it ends keeps you sitting there wanting more! Especially her titles make me want to read ALL of them...and when I have time I will :)

Best Poem of Hazel Durham

The Essence Is You

Lover of life, every man dreamt of you being his wife,
Long blond hair shimmering in the sunlight,
A golden face, forever smiling,
You held the reins of your destiny,
Your choice was love, as your soul ran free,
Cherishing the roots that made you,
When you disappeared the sun was blotted out,
Dark clouds brooding over the town,
Suspicions, hearsay and rumours abound,
Forces unknown had swallowed you up,
No trace remains of the flower that was you,
Only sadness and death is left on the doorstep,
The essence lingers long over a midland throng, ...

Read the full of The Essence Is You


Places, faces, friends or foe,
Life gathers as we sow,
Dreams scatter as harsh winds blow,
Lovers say their empty words then go,
Familiar voices we long to hear,
To comfort us in all our fears,
Life as complex as the incoming tides,
Sometimes soft and serene,
More times fast and turbulent,

[Hata Bildir]
