The Prophet's Song--By James Fraser--Scotland

The Prophet's Song

In relation to deliberation on this poetry nation
A writer is he as clever as can be, lures you to he

With stories of writers he fashions with words
Encrypted solutions to be read to be heard

This newbie of writers who has arrived on our shores
Gathers driftwood for his writing hoard

In clever approach in his delightful encroach
He mixes in the mix, for its against him to poach

His verse is so free it gains respect of the wind
It resonates desires to be read and unwound

His name deciphered, the destroyer of poetry
This writer so cute, knows who he wants to be

This mask he has chosen is entirely his voice
To remove and become, is basically, simply his choice

James Andrew Fraser resides in Inverness, the Capital of the Highlands, Bonnie Scotland. He is married with four lovely children. Andrew, Steven, Rebekah and Liam.

  1. James,

    Great work that you have penned in this one..You are still growing in your gift.


  2. Dear James, Now this is a "bonnie good" poem that invites me to read, reread and unwind the clever verses and encrypted message. Your choice to share your talent here with us on Whispers is a good one. Thank you for sharing a well written and very interesting poem..

  3. While cryptic, in a manner to me, this romp is overwhelmingly entertaining. Odds are, I will still be dwelling on it a day from now.

  4. Oh, I certainly agree about Carolyn Devonshire! She is such a blessing! Your poem is a wonderful definition of "the writer" and may have one particular writer in mind, but I can "see" the light reflecting on all writers. The inspiration therein is incredible! Your poem is incredible! Sheri /

  5. Hi James. I enjoyed this. Isn't Carolyn such a blessing! Thank you for sharing and continued blessings!
