About Hanna Heath

Hello. My name is Hanna. I am twenty seven years old and currently living in Shanghai as i am a ESL teacher. I have been writting poetry since i was around eleven years old. My grandpa is a poet, and i'm proud to say some of his talent has been passed down a generation - or two! I love my job as an ESL teacher, i love how a child can say something and suddenly a blurb of rhyming phrases comes to my mind, i love attempting to remember them till my free time, and i love how usually they end up better than the original thought that had popped into my head. Poetry is a way of expressing feeling, thoughts, views, opinions, and i finally feel confident in sharing some of my work with you. I don't have any particular themes, i write about love, politics, life, emotions, confusion - basically where ever the train of thought takes me! Any how, i hope you guys like some of my stuff, and i'm looking forward to reading what you all have to offer.

    This poem touched me in a way I didn't know poetry could. I'm an aspiring writer myself and often use bird metaphors in a sort of way that my friends think is pretentious - but to see someone...

    My Biggest Fear

    in Fear Poems

    Fear is the strangest thing,
    as it comes from within our heads.
    But that don't stop it tucking us in
    when we're safe within our beds.

    The Simple Things I Love About You

    in Romantic Poems

    It is not your conversation
    That keeps me entertained
    But rather the way you look at me
    That makes me feel sustained

    Thank you. It’s a warm poem. It reminds me of the boy I loved silently in primary school. I forget when I fell in love, but I remember when he yelled, “I like you,” but not to me. I remember...

I'm sorry this is such a late reply. Being in China, I tend to get emails, notifications, etc. after the fact! Thank you for your comment. The poem "A little Bird am I" hasn't gained much momentum, both on this site and on my own. I'm very grateful to hear your words and to know it has reached even one person. Please, find my other poems through the like on my profile on this site, I would appreciate any comments/support anyone has to offer.
Thanks again,

Hi! This is a remarkable poem. I love the way you used the words. I just have to add though, that it saddens me that poetry about care is always reminding people/caregivers/nurses to be nicer. I worked in care for 8 years before moving to China. It is sad to say that some people do need this sort of reminding but the caring caregivers never get mentioned. Out of all the caregivers I've worked with (and I've worked with many) only a handful could have done with reading this poem and others like it. There's also soo much love in care homes and caregivers really do care regardless of the simple few who give this profession such a bad name. Just my thoughts.
