    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.

Spring tide of native tongue,
Pollen grains dust 'n' fury
Ticked days fell from union,
And laid

Ambient with cold earth,
And talked

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

From Dabedra - 19/8/1993

Enmesh and grow,
A tapestry unfurls.

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