Poet's Corner

The A-Z of love part 2


You give love full of grace
This heart respects that
Can’t you see that with the beam of a smile lighting
Up my face


This heart love loves you more than you’d
Ever know
And more than you’d believe
So receive it with open arms
This heart of mine


You are an irresistible magnetic force
Love will take its course
A collision with you is guaranteed
but our will love succeed!


Joy is love shared
Joy flares up in my heart
When I hold you
Haven’t I ever told you?
How much you mean to this little soul.


Your love is kindness
You heal my blindness
So I can see what life can be
With the new found sight you have given to me

Labour of love

Love is hard work but always worth it
You plant a seed tend to it
and then let it grow!


About the author

Dan Hooks

Hi there my name is Dan Hooks and I am a poet.

My poetry has many diverse themes from madness to the mundane, from fantasy and fable to philosophical and the darkness of reality (whatever that is).

I have been writing since I was 18 and have inspired other artists such as Benjamin Heine who created an piece of art work called”filled with fire” from my poem called “Freedom”. That poem was inspired from a quote from Nelson Mandela saying “we are free to be free”. Writing I find is a collaborative process.

I have also written other poems which have been used in language courses in America, Canada and Australia. One of which is called “poem on identity” and the other one is “Antithesis”.

I have a soundcloud account in which I post poems to music and my spoken word pieces. I find spreading my work on various social media platforms really useful for presenting my work.

I am also fond of travelling and have climbed Mount Fuji in Japan visited Finland skied in both USA in keystone Colorado and Whistler in Canada. I find perspective can be found in travelling to other countries and it also helps you appreciate other cultures as well your own.
