About the Book

“Armless Hugs” is a collection of poems which tries to capture and communicate strong feelings and interesting thoughts about human relationships and key ideas that people have about the world and their place within it.

The lead poem “Armless Hugs” is particularly relevant today as many people are isolated from their loved ones during the coronavirus pandemic and have to hug them with their arms by their sides, even for some at the time of the death of their loved ones. The words sound like harmless hugs which suggests a link to the phrase “do no harm” which so many of our carers abide by as an ethical or moral principle when devoting themselves to healing others.

Part One focuses on human relationships while Part Two is more general in its scope.
