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.

Sonnet for inconsistency
There lies a real imbalance barely seen
With destruction and creation unclean,
The energy between has no connect
Proportions physics truely disrespect.
A child will take nine months to grow and thrive
But in an instant it can fail and die,
A house may take a year til lock up stage,
But a home by fire quickly can be razed.
Forests will toil millennia to grow,
