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.

From Dabedra - 19/8/1993

Life’s bonds entwine,
Around love they curl,
Enmesh and grow,
A tapestry unfurls.

A picture of care,
To teach and learn,
The threads reach out,
But always return.
