    Danny has a deft touch that draws the reader in to the natural world.
    His poetry is intricately crafted and fascinating.

    You are an excellent poet. Your poems encourage one to think about life a little more than if they hadn't been read. Thank you, I shall enjoy a poem a day of yours to consider your thoughts on life in general. Nessy x

Best Poem of Danny Draper

For The Longest Time

For the longest time

Random absent reason bore
Irrational heinous deeds,
Stranger violated sanctuary
Fixing their confused memories,
And restlessness
for the longest time.

They wore it an each day shirt
Spring tide of native tongue,
Pollen grains dust 'n' fury
Ticked days fell from union,
And laid
for the longest time.

They chanced upon
The life cleft beauty,
Sullen indolent skin
Ambient with cold earth,
And talked
for the longest time.

They watched over
The dispersing elements,
Disinterested in ...

Read the full of For The Longest Time

Year Of The Tiger

A gibbous moon
Of tired ochre
Leered from diagonal
Above the horizon,
One eyed cat
Out for vengeance
Harbinger of doom
War weary pariah,
Fire, fire coolly dimming
