I was born in the late 1940s which makes me one of the BABY-BOOMERS. But we could also have been called PEACE-BABIES, because that's why so many of our parents wanted
to start families - a horrendous war had ended in total victory and the Great Depression had been replaced by the New Prosperity. My parents, from lower middle backgrounds, benefited ...

After The Poet's Death

His poems refuse
to mourn his passing, they
detach themselves from
books, magazines, wall hangings

The Abandoned Poem

I wrote a long poem
for you this morning
in the pure light
of an untouched day.

Four Taoist Poems


Scattered rocks lie
beneath the moss-covered boulder.

A Walk In Early April

Against the sun-wall of air
the birds disguise themselves
as their own shadows,
before settling invisibly among the leaves.

Walking Through Autumn


Powerlines along my path bristled
with electric fire, scorching

Daniel, do you happen to know what's happened to Brian Edwards Whitaker? I have not heard of him for quite a time. Thanks in advance for any comment. And please excuse my troubling you.

Poetry was the Joy, War the Grief, and the two were knotted together like Fire in the Lake.--These are the lines from your poem on Robert Bly.Such a wonderful poem!

I am very sorry, there are international poets like Daniel Brick, but he hasn’t been known and recognised well, perhaps the reason is due to the decentralized reality of poetry. Otherwise, the poet's style, language and themes are in a very poetic high level, all I wish him a good health and all the best..

If you're new to Poemhunter and/or haven't read the poems of Daniel Brick, I encourage you to explore them. Daniel can write with the facility that comes from years of practice, with knowledge of the humanities that enriches his work, but, most of all, his writing comes from a lovely heart. He's one of the few poets I regularly visit here. -Glen Kappy

A volume of Daniel Brick's poetry can sit on a bookshelf with its head up and spine straight among all the volumes of the best of poetry from the pens of all the best classic authors- - Dickinson, Frost, Sandburg, cummings, Tennyson, name your favorite. Daniel's pen flows with magic not just ink. His poetry has my head swirling with questions and wonders and imagery and magic and symbolism and psychology and philosophy and memories and heroism and love and joy of living. Every time I have picked up a new poem of his to read I find it Absolutely The Top-Notch Writing that all his readers have come to expect from Daniel Brick.

I am just awed by Daniel's poems and reviews.They have so much depth, they are so insightful.It is wonderful to see how he connects our inner self with the outer self.It is always a pleasure to read his reviews.He is not only a poet of very high stature but a good human being as he always inspires others with his positive words.He is a crusader against terrorism and inequality.We can never describe Daniel as a poet, critique or person in these few words.I only salute him for his great contribution to the world of literature.I am so lucky to have met him through this webite- -Poem Hunter..

For Daniel PS Sinicrope A flight of seagulls, A stash of old poems, muses and music, An imaginary garden, A golden skylark, A walk in the woods- These are the things that Unlock his desires And set his soul on fire. Apotheosis achieved On a daily basis In the mind of a man Who sees the world through a magic lens. A black fedora And a large winter coat Obstruct the smiling face And the gentle soul within. He’s free with a laugh, a story And a kind word— An’ irish midwestern’ gentleman to a tee. He’s a a poet’s poet That shares his passion Through imaginative commentary And inspired verse To you, we raise our hands up In a toast of friendship and camaraderie. Happy New Year 2016 Daniel Brick! ?
