The Castle by the Sea
As ghost crabs meander
across its gates
I dig a moat
the ocean waits
Curtis Gray – Old West “cowboy poem”
This awesome story and fantasy poem of two brothers, both mountain men, separated by a life and death fight with injuns, and their surprise reunion.
The Stars and Stripes – a patriotic poem
Few people fly American flags – even on holidays, although you’ll see a school or fantasy flag, and I think that’s sad. This patriotic poem is dedicated to Old Glory, and the need to fly her.
The Woman and the cat – fantasy poem
This fantasy poem about finding a stray kitten on the street saves a lonely woman from her isolation, and brings the cat and her together as a family sharing their mutual love.
The Dance – a romantic fantasy poem
“The Dance” is a fantasy poem of romance almost like a short love story. Written in free verse, it is a fantasy or reality we all have wished for — here symbolized by a romantic dance to a Sinatra tune, between an older, but still very much in love couple. And as they dance, it seems to bring all of that together. A best fantasy poem, and poem of a long and close romance.
The Trapped Whale – a true story poem
A poem and true story of a whale trapped in fishing netting off the coast of San Francisco that was rescued by the crew of a small fishing boat.
The Yellow Ribbon – fantasy poem
The Yellow Ribbon story originated after the Civil War. My fantasy poem tells of a man on a long bus journey back to family – but gets off only if they first tie a yellow ribbon around a big oak tree.
