Biography of Danny Draper

I have been writing poems since I was about 12. I am interested in the intricate beauty of language, it's messages and anger and power to love and inspire. I enjoy playing with language to test its maliability sometimes puns, or sounds or shapes, but always the beauty of the words and their places of humour, anger, comfort, love, loneliness, or hatred, exasperation, justice and injustices, indignation, exageration, exaltation, spirituality and love. These are some of the essences of drama and life carried pumping, pulsing raging with life affirming and murderous lust through poetry, the blood of language.

Trophic Cascade

What is undone can't always be remade,
Deconstructed, wayward and discrete
Her myriad tangled beauties in a trophic cascade.


Soft tree voices on music daily played
Aeolian chants of wisdom replete,
What is undone can't always be remade.

[Hata Bildir]
