Jim Hyde

From Dublin, Ireland

An Australian now washed ashore in Ireland after years of living all sorts of places. Lots of poems published, plays as well. Day job is as a trainer with intellectual disabilities, the night job is the force, power and passion of emotion in poetry and life. Published 'Summer Daily Love Poems' in 2013. We all are more than we're ever able to show others. And that's good.

What inspires me?

Ideas, the people I see around me, digging out the lost weeds of my own past and seeing what happens next ... Also, having to publish collections of poetry makes me focus and do the following to make my poems truly good: revise, revise, revise, revise!
