I am poetry's plaything. Always have been. Always will be.


Oh God, make me a mirror let me reflect the beauty of Your creation oh, please Lord, don't look on my flawed frame I am pock marked by sin broken and disjointedly arranged ambling my awkwardness to kneel before You for You I removed my gossamer coverings worldly convictions presuppostions prejudices and pride and this last fig leaf outlining my frailty collapsed and trembling (it's so cold out here) but, for You I am naked I am naked and scared Yet, You kneel, too stroke my head and love my leprous body -Dyphrent

One of the most beautiful things is to read a poem that takes you on a journey. Samples shows the vulnerability, courage, and strength take me as I am. While loving the perfect imperfection you made. Love it dope poem.

Hi Ja'Net,

Just finished eating my breakfast and reading your lovely comment on my profile page - thanks! It's been great reading your work here on WoL, such a wonderful place to make connections with other writers around the world. I very much hope you will stay and share more of your creativity.

So pleased you like my sample poem. I took a look at Walt's and appreciate the wonder of looking and being in that moment. Sometimes we get too immersed in learning and naming and remembering that we forget to simply stop and observe and listen. Poetry is all about that moment for me.

Thanks also for visiting my blog. I should post there more often but for now time doesn't allow. Take care,

Dyphrent, welcome to WOL. And LOOK! A first poem chosen as Poem of the Week. Congratulations! That's a record, I think, and a real honour.

The poem following your 'bio' is very intense with some fine ideas. I really like 'presuppositions, prejudices and pride' an excellently alliterated list.

I take it that you feel 'possessed' by poetry. I think that most of us contributing poems here, and reading other works on site, know exactly what you mean. It's a great common denominator that ties us all together.

May we know where you live?
