mostly free verse, some “shape” poetry, assorted forms, micropoetry

i’m dani {not a boy} and this blog is my attempt at writing poetry

  1. You have beautiful words. Although maybe you should try writing longer poetry because it’s quite a waste since I’m sure you’ll be good at it.

    Thank you

    dani, just checked out the whole sight. Amazing! I have no clue how something such as this could be constructed. Are you an engineer and a poet?
    Your use of black and red are touching for me. It expresses the deep pleasure and horrific pain of love.

  9. Hi,

    I’m Jett. I really like your site, and you’re linked to a lot on other writing/book blogs. I work for Harper Collins and more specifically InkPop.com. The site just re-launched a week ago and we’re really excited about the new look and new features. HPC editors are still reviewing submitted works in our kick-ass contests, but what’s new is the fresh badge system we have to promote individual profiles.

    It’s definitely still a YA/Teen writing site, but we like to think our audience is pretty diverse, and most of all, passionate. I’m writing to you to see if you’d perhaps consider writing a tweet/blurb/mention about the new digs? We care about young writers continuing to write their best work, and HPC is devoted to producing the kind of books its readers want to read most. The editors of the site are super responsive and take all complaints/concerns into consideration. Considering the hodgepodge pack of writing communities available today, InkPop is a much-needed refresher. Writing communities are the best way to get peer revision in the digital age.

    Thanks so much for hearing me out. Take care.


    • i’m flattered that you feel my opinion might get someone to visit InkPop.com. i’ve looked briefly at the site. when i have a chance to really explore, i’ll at least tweet about the site. thanks for visiting my blog.

  17. Hello dani ♥
    I really Love the “new” site ~ so much easier to navigate through and well put together.
    I am so looking forward to continued explorations of your wonderful words and thoughts.
    Ainsley ♥

  18. Sinnerman is a truly terrifying proposition to be rejected by all that is Good and all that is Evil. I did not anticipate the ending so a great surprise. The ending made me even more sympathetic to the character. Now I wonder what he did to warrant no redemption possible? Perhaps another story to continue/solve the problem proposed at the the end of this story? Take care.

    At other site I could not comment but thank-you for post regarding women/female being disallowed school/UN right to education. As a retired school teacher, my blood boils as this discrimination has no basis.

    I did not seem to be able to post at short story site.

    • there have been problems with comments at several sites lately. maybe WordPress has a glitch. as for “Sinnerman” i think that he performed a human sacrifice to a false demon, which angered both God and Satan. {i imagine Satan would not want any demons worshipped instead of him.} thank you so much for your visit and comment! ♥

  19. Happiness was finding your beautiful blog today.
